Our Custom Cushion Cover & Outdoor Bean Bag Fabrics

treated water resistant fabric

We have 4 types of fabric to suit a range of budgets and situations – standard outdoor (400D PVC backed Polyester), commercial strength (1680D PVC backed Polyester), and Resortella (treated Polyester), and the new Sunproof 100% solution dyed Olefin.

The standard fabric suits an undercover area – it has a matte canvas type finish. The commercial grade fabric is 4x stronger for enhanced durability, it is more fade resistant, has a thicker weave and deluxe enhanced sheen, making it very easy to keep clean. The Resortella is water and fade resistant, has a soft cushion finish and is indeed the top of our range.

Both the standard and commercial material have a PVC backing so they are water resistant.  We don’t say waterproof as, if left in a heavy down pour of rain, water can seep through the stitching and zipper areas, and eventually the fabric. Our Resortella fabric is treated so water just beads off it (see picture). This makes it much softer as it does not need the PVC backing. But again if caught in heavy rain the water will seep in through the stitching so it isn’t waterproof but is considered water resistant.

We highly recommend the Commercial or Olefin fabric if your covers are going to be left out in the elements . The standard fabric will fade if in direct sunlight, however some colours fade better than others, lighter colours are less effected by the sun. Olefin is definitely the best choice if you want your covers to stand the test of time.
