Modern outdoor fabrics aren't like those of old. They've come a long way since vinyl, barkcloth, and oilcloth. Today's outdoor fabrics are made from 100% high UV- resistant polyester, and Sunbrella outdoor fabrics lead the way in manufacturing 100% solution-dyed acrylic.


Sunbrella outdoor fabrics are manufactured using a variety synthetic blends, and the term solution-dyed refers to how the fabric is colored. The majority of the fabric is colored in the second step of the process. This means that both the sun and chlorine will not fade or discolor the fabric.

All Sunbrella outdoor fabrics are chemically treated to repel water so they're resistant to mildew growth, soiling, and rotting.

This is why Sunbrella outdoor fabrics work perfectly on a cushion to relax by the pool. Their fabrics come in a number of grades, with each one serving a specific purpose. Since their outdoor fabric line is made from high-end material, it can also be used repeatedly under the hot sun without degrading.

Sunbrella outdoor fabrics are also easy to maintain because they're created to combine optimal performance and design. All you need is a simple cleaning solution of mild soap and water.
