Sunbrella is a performance fabric designed specifically for fade resistance and outdoor use. It was invented in the 1960s with a focus on outdoor seating and over time has developed a soft and luxurious feel. It's engineered to be resistant to fading due to sun or chemical exposure. Sunbrella is perfect for outdoor spaces, sunrooms, and any room that gets a lot of sunlight.

You can even put it in the washing machine (just skip the dryer)! The cleanability of Sunbrella makes it a low-maintenance fabric that's perfect for a second home. It comes in an array of beautiful solids and patterns.
