Fabric Facts

We offer high quality outdoor fabric for all your outdoor fabric needs.  Outdoor fabric is exclusively designed for outdoor use. We offer our customers a wide selection of outdoor stripes, solids, and prints to choose from. 

- All of our fabrics are made for outdoor use unless otherwise specified

- All fabrics are liquid and stain resistant

- It is ok that your fabrics and cushions get wet

- Every fabric is fade, mildew, and rot resistant

- There is no need to treat your cushions with protectants

- To prolong the life of the fabric store cushions and umbrellas indoors during winter or inclement weather

- To prolong the life of your cushions, spread a towel over the cushion when using baby oil, suntan lotions or oils.  These products tend to breakdown the U.V. factor in the fabric and can cause premature fading.

- Spilling food or drink onto your cushion can cause bacteria to be trapped between fibers and threads, causing mold to grow. Periodically clean your cushions with mild soap and water to safeguard against this. Fabric itself does not support mold, but the bacteria can become trapped between weaves.

- Fabric Prices are based on grade and weave of the fibers used in the fabric as well as hours of U.V. protection.
