What is Olefin?

Olefin is actually a green fabric.  Olefin is another word for polypropylene fiber.  It was first created in Italy in 1957.  It was in production in the US starting in 1960.  It is used in many textile applications. Olefin uses no water or land in production, which makes it greener than cotton, silk, wool or rayon.  Olefin is naturally stain-resistant and water-resistant.  It is durable, colorfast and stain resistant.  If you'd like to see the fabrics in person, stop by our shop.

What is sunbrella fabric?

Sunbrella fabrics are made from solution dyed acrylic.  The acrylic is dyed before it is formed into a fiber and spun into yarn.  The process of creating solution dyed acrylic creates a super-hero like product that can be soft to the touch but also colorfast and water resistant. 

Sunbrella fabrics are durable, fade-resistant, easy to clean, mold and mildew resistant and eco-friendly.  Water and waste are minimal in the manufacturing process and when they’ve reached the end of their useful life, Sunbrella fabrics can be recycled.
