One of the many joys of the vacation season is the chance to pick up and head into the great outdoors to pitch your tent beneath the stars. So, as summer in our part of the world comes to a close, we asked designers to have a go at creating fabrics that celebrate camping. The camping fabric winner is Canadian designer Lori Rudolph.
