Sunbrella Fabrics®

Extend Your Living Space Outdoors

Sunbrella® fabrics are designed for homeowners who want to expand their living spaces "outdoors".



Our good friend and Interior Decorator, Bohnne Jones, tells us how these fabrics can be used in your outdoor living spaces - like your front porch or back yard patio.

Some facts about Sunbrella®:
  • Originally designed and used in awnings, and then boating
  • Been in existence since 1961
  • Available in a wonderful selection of vivid colors and stylish designs and patterns.

Bohnne continues..."Even before "green" became a theme in home decorating products, the manufacturers of Sunbrella® were already good stewards of our environment."

Several ways that Sunbrella fabrics protect the earth:
  • Create no wastewater from dyeing as is found in conventional dyeing processes.
  • Extremely durable - its lifespan is from 2 to 10 times longer than most fabrics.
  • Offer some protection from the sun. Awnings, shades and umbrellas made from Sunbrella can actually help to reduce sun-induced skin damage. Additionally, these fabrics do not fade from the strong rays of the sun.
  • Soil and stain-resistant finish - very easy to clean. As with all fabrics, it helps to brush off dirt and wipe up spots as soon as they happen.

    Spot clean before dirt and stains are embedded in the fabric. You can spot wash your fabrics by sponging briskly with a soapy solution of natural soap in lukewarm water. Then, simply rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove the soap and let the fabric air dry.

  • Sunbrella cushions
  • Mildew resistant - however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric.

    To remove mildew stains, add one cup bleach and two caps-full of a natural soap to a warm gallon of water.

    Spray on entire area, and allow to soak in.

    Sponge thoroughly with clean water, and let air dry.

    Protect surrounding areas while working with the bleach solution.
