We spend a lot of time in our garden or on the balcony during summertime. More and more manufacturers are concentrating on weatherproof outdoor textiles in order to make balconies and terraces as comfortable as the inside of our apartments. Those comfortable textiles should still be resistant against natural influences.
New fabrics for outside
Classic outdoor materials like hemp or high quality acrylic fibres are complemented by new material products thanks to technical advances, ensuring comfort and meeting all requirements for outside use.
Manufacturers like Skagerak, Weishäupl or Fermob like to use newer materials like Dolan®, Sun Brella® or Barriere®. These materials, which were developed to be used outside, promise to protect from water, dirt and light influences without losing their original fabric quality. The textiles’ colour and softness remain unchanged and are resistant at the same time.
The lotus effect makes it possible for plaids, cushions and upholstery to remain outside during the whole summer, without needing to worry about lasting humidity from rainy days or morning humidity. The water will pearl away from them, keeping mould at bay as well.
These new outdoor textiles include waterproof seat and chair cushions for garden furniture and also complete lounge furniture upholstery as well as colourful carpets for outside.
With the new outdoor textiles you don’t need to worry about rain anymore and start enjoying the summer in your garden.
