WHAT IS THE BEST FABRIC FOR UNDER THE PATIO CUSHIONS?
All of our outdoor fabrics are well-suited for an undercover situation as they are all specific to the outdoors by being mildew and fade resistant ( in case they get a bit of the morning sun! )
WHAT IS THE BEST FABRIC FOR ALL WEATHER POSITIONS?
Sunbrella is by far the more superior product for long-term all-weather situations. Being a 100% solution dyed acrylic canvas means that color is added to acrylic fibers during manufacturing while they are in a liquid state. This characteristic of acrylic fabrics is the key to locking in color, easy cleaning and long life. For this reason, acrylic fabric offers incredible resistance to stains, weather and wear in any application. We do not offer a polyester ‘outdoor’ fabric at all as it is not designed for Australia’s harsh environment.
WHAT IS THE BEST FILL FOR MY NEW CUSHION COVERS?
For an alfresco or indoor situation, then our comfortable, yet supportive furniture foam is suitable. For an all-weather cushion or any time a cushion may get wet, then we recommend you use outdoor foam. The unique quality of outdoor foam is when wet, outdoor foam will drain water through its unique drainage system where normal foam acts like a sponge. Outdoor foam has a high density so cushions remain comfortable for longer and is suitable for any cushion around the home or on the boat.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY CUSTOM MADE CUSHIONS?
Most of our cushion fabrics can be simply cleaned with a soap and water solution. For individual details of each fabric, please visit our fabric gallery.
ARE THERE OTHER FABRICS AVAILABLE?
Yes, there are hundreds of different fabrics available particularly in the Sunbrella and Warwick ranges. For the full range of Sunbrella fabrics, please visit www.sunbrella.com and for Warwick Fabrics please visit www.warwick.com.au. We have access to any of these gorgeous fabrics so if you would like to special order something specific, please email us and we will order it for you.

SHOULD I ORDER TIES FOR MY BENCH CUSHION? HOW LONG ARE THEY AND WHERE SHOULD THEY BE PLACED?
