What makes Sunbrella fabric so special?
Superior Sunbrella color pigments are added during the production of fade-resistant Sunbrella fiber.
The final result is Sunbrella yarn and fabric with color throughout that won’t fade or wash away – even with extreme exposure to the sun or cleaning with bleach!
(Imagine a carrot, with color through to the core, that can’t be peeled away.)
In ordinary fabrics, dyes are added to the surface of the yarn or fabric.
The color only penetrates the outer layer and washes out or fades away over time.
(Imagine a radish which is red outside but white in the middle.)
The color in Sunbrella fabrics penetrates all the way to the core, ensuring years of vibrant color and performance.
Although Sunbrella pigments are stable enough to be cleaned with bleach, most stains can be removed with mild soap and water, and a soft bristled brush.
