1. They're durable
Outdoor fabrics are perfect for family rooms, kitchen and dining room chairs, outdoor cushions and patio umbrellas. They’re designed for anywhere you want your furniture to hold up to everyday life.
2. They're stain repellent
Most of our outdoor fabrics have a stain-repellent finish for easy care. Stains can be removed with mild soap and water. A mild bleach solution can be used on Sunbrella® fabrics to remove stubborn stains. Outdoor cushions can even be hosed down. Consider fast drying marine foam inserts for your outdoor cushions.
3. They're weather resistant
Outdoor fabrics such as Sunbrella® resist fading, mildew, water and soil. They’re ideal for use outdoors, inside near sunny windows, and in steamy bathrooms for shades and upholstery. Acrylic fabrics do not support the growth of mildew, an added benefit for outdoor cushions or damp climates. Acrylic woven fabrics are about twice as fade resistant as printed acrylic fabrics or polyester print fabrics. In solution-dyed acrylic fabrics, the dye penetrates the entire fiber, rather than sitting on the surface. (It’s like a carrot—the color is consistent throughout.) Sunbrella® fabrics that are solids, stripes and jacquards have the most color fastness of all even through intense sunlight exposure and cleaning with bleach.
4. They're beautiful
Indoor-outdoor fabrics that once were stiff as a board now come with a softer hand —you’ll find chenilles, velvets, jacquards, damasks and relaxed twill textures — even sheers. The bottom line: with outdoor fabrics such as Sunbrella®, you never have to compromise on style. Shop online now or visit our stores for an even larger selection.
