The Colours of Mexico, Oilcloth and Bunting

Colour is everywhere in Mexico

Colours of Mexico blog - Pallu Design


The street markets, costumes, food, gardens and festivals all vibrate with a million hues.  

Vivid colour seems to flourish in all aspects of life and is appreciated by everyone, the brilliant hues reverberating with the colours of nature - and somehow every colour seems to go with every other one!

Oranges and limes, ochre and cobalt painted walls, azure blue sky and red roses, bougainvillea and hibiscus ... delightful contrasts and harmonies are everywhere you look.

Life in the Outdoors

Mexico is a country where living outdoors in the sub tropical climate is a natural choice.

Courtyards, gardens, thatched shelters and hammocks are all part of the living space and are decorated with lots of colour, folk art and texture. 

City plazas feature refreshing public fountains and gardens and feature Mexican artisanship in the form of decorative pottery and stonework.


So What is Mexican Oilcloth?

Mexican Oilcloth is a colourful, highly durable double coated vinyl fabric with a cotton scrim backing, made in Mexico. The ink is printed in the first coat of PVC, not onto the fabric backing. This is then coated with a clear layer of PVC, making the fabric strong and versatile, fade resistant and it wipes clean.

How to use Mexican Oilcloth

In Mexico oilcloth is used in restaurants as tablecloths both outdoor or indoors because of its highly durable quality.  It is perfect for any application that requires an easy to clean surface. Think outdoor tablecloths, messy play, picnics and colourful outdoor bunting - oilcloth doesn’t fray, so no need to hem, just cut to size.
