Given the state of the global economy and the low dollar, you may not want to splurge on a safari vacation just now. Fortunately, Wild Side from Perennials Outdoor Fabrics brings both the Serengeti and the Kasbah to local pools and patios. This exotic collection of 14 playful textiles, most in acrylic, includes Whammo Camo, a modern take on camouflage in colors flannel and jungle. No Bones About It captures the movement of zebra stripes in two colorways: honed limestone and zebra. Bold, jacquard-woven Giraffe Trails in dove and flannel does anything but follow the herd. Grass Cloth is a textured solid that emulates woven raffia. And Stripes and Symmetry each provide subtle patterning to complement the rest. Perfect for cabanas that take a beating from the sun, Safari is reminiscent of gauze or mosquito netting. Of course, unlike the real things, these fabrics come with a three-year, no-fade warranty, and are soil-, mildew-, and UV-resistant. Symmetry, Stripes, Silhouette, and Smoothie are offered in double widths of 118 inches; Safari in 112 inches; Giraffe Trails, No Bones About It, and Whammo Camo in 55 inches; Grass Cloth and Canvas Weave in 54 inches; and Scrunch in 52 inches. 888-322-4773; perennialsfabrics.com. circle 762
