Patio Mats / Picnic Blankets by Airstream Life

$199.00

Airstream Life is the only quarterly print publication for Airstreamers. For 17 years, the magazine has featured the art and photography of Airstream artists on its covers. Along with the 2020 launch of the Globetrotter Gallery by Airstream Life, the company selected artwork by graphic designer Matt Boorstin to create Tarpestrys from his Sonoma Valley (Spring 2016 issue) and Key West (Summer 2017 issue) designs. As patio mats, Tapestrys make a unique ground cover under an Airstream’s awning. They can also be used as colorful as picnic blankets.

In the coming months, Airstream Life plans to create additional Tarpestry designs from its cover art.

CARE GUIDE:

• Cleaning. Treat the Tarpestry like a tarp! Shake it out when it’s dirty, rinse it off with a hose when it’s really dirty.  Spot clean with mild soap. Hang to dry. Harsh detergent and the agitation of the machine wash will eventually break down the inner coating on the Tarpestry. You won’t see this but you may notice a decrease in water-repellency. If there is a noticeable difference in functionality, re-coat the Tarpestry with spray for waterproofing outdoor gear.

• Sun exposure. RuggedMini and Epic Tarpestrys have UV treated fabrics – the colors for these styles will last the longest. These two styles are what you want if you plan to have your Tarpestry outside 24/7. The Classic Style Tarpestry has a soft cotton upper that is printed with vegetable dyes – this cotton fabric is not UV treated. The vibrancy may fade but the functionality will not!

• Water. The Tarpestry is not waterproof, it is highly water-repellent. Ergo, it will repel the water to a point. Lay your Tarpestry down on damp grass and you will stay high and dry. If you lay it down in a puddle, it will eventually saturate and you will have a soggy bottom. The Tarpestry is not a float. If you use your Tarpestry for rain protection, hang it at an angle so that the water can bead up and roll down. If you allow the water to pool, it will eventually saturate. And for the love of Pete have the water-repellent base fabric facing the rain.
