In the world of outdoor furniture, fabric is one of the first things that is considered when purchasing a furniture set. With a wide range of fabric options to choose from, it can become cumbersome to sift through and decide on the best fabric for your needs. Today, we are going to discuss the most popular fabric for outdoor seating: Sunbrella. Since its inception in the 1960s, Sunbrella has become the best fabric for cushions, tapestry, and covers in the fabric business. There are plenty of reasons to love Sunbrella, and we are going to show you each of these today.

Humble Beginnings

Sunbrella first began in the 1960s as a pioneer in innovation. When the rest of the competition was creating fabrics primarily made of cotton, which are prone to damage, fading, and tearing, Sunbrella came in with its own take on fabric: 100% solution dyed acrylic fabric. This type of fabric differs from its cotton and polyester competitors in a few different areas, which gave Sunbrella a unique edge in the industry. Compared to their cotton counterparts, which kept the color dye on the surface, Sunbrella patented a unique color-to-the-core technology, which made each individual fiber colored instead of a fiber with coloring on top. With their continued research & development on honing their fabric, Sunbrella quickly gave rise to a new way of looking at outdoor patio furniture fabric, as well as boat covers and umbrella tapestries.

Long Lasting Guarantee

With its innovative design, Sunbrella fabric continues to take over the market in outdoor & indoor fabric for cushions, tapestries, & covers. Because of the unique fabric that is colored to the core instead of just the surface, Sunbrella has one-of-a-kind benefits that other fabrics cannot match. With its deep coloring, not only are the colors more vibrant, leading to a wide array of choices, but also the color doesn't fade over time. As the fabric sits in the sun, instead of the superficial layer of dye disappearing like most typical fabrics, the coloring only deepens to the next level. This is why Sunbrella outdoor fabric has a 10-year lifespan, which far outlasts even its closest competitor. Additionally, Sunbrella fabric is water repellent and tear resistant, which makes it one of the top outdoor fabrics for patio furniture. No more worries about spilling wine or getting dirty shoes on your outdoor furniture; with Sunbrella, you can rest assured your outdoor investment is long lasting.

Environmentally Conscious

Sunbrella already makes its mark in the textile industry with its patented technology for long-lasting fabric, giving it fade and water resistance. Since its founding, and continuing into the present day, Sunbrella also makes its case for being a step ahead of the industry in environmental consciousness. The manufacturing process for the outdoor fabric is top-of-the-line in business practices for not only efficiency but also environmental standards. On top of that, the process for dying the fabric is so unique that it uses a significantly lower amount of energy and water, adding to all-around earth-friendly product. In keeping with these eco-standards, Sunbrella also has their own unique recycling program called Recycle My Sunbrella. This program not only takes your fabric once it's fulfilled its purpose, but it is also repurposed into other textile products.
