1. The Resistance

No this is not about Star Wars. This resistance is all about the toughness of performance fabric. These cloths and fibers are  water resistant, stain resistant, and mold and mildew resistant. Pet has an accident? You’re covered. A glass of wine takes a tumble? No problem.

2. Easy to Clean

Performance fabrics are easier to clean and keep clean compared to other furniture fabrics.

The most common threads used for performance upholstery fabric are olefin, acrylic, nylon, and polyester. All of these threads except nylon are particularly known for their ability to be washed and cleaned easily. If you do happen to find a tough stain, use one of these top laundry stain removers before washing, drying, and unintentionally setting the stain.

3. Environmental Benefits

Performance Fabrics are sturdy

This one is specific to olefin. Olefin is made from the process of upcycling petroleum. It uses no land or water to produce and olefin possesses performance fabric qualities without needing to be chemically treated.

4. No Stretch and Shrinkage

Performance fabrics will not shrink.

We’ve all had the sweater that goes from a great fit to a super tiny in the wash. Performance fabrics are treated to ensure that the size you buy is the size you keep.


5. Fun in the Sun

Performance fabrics will not fade in color.

Performance fabrics have a quality called light fastness. This means your patio furniture can stay bright and poppy despite the strong rays of the sun beating down from above.
