Whether you’re looking for outdoor patio cushions or outdoor bench cushions, it’s always important to choose fabrics resistant to UV rays. Find out more about our fade-proof outdoor cushion fabric below.

What fabric doesn’t fade?

Polypropylene and 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are best for outdoor seat cushions. Polypropylene offers superior UV resistance and has no dye sites. This means that, despite Australia’s extreme weather conditions, they are very durable.

100% solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are also highly resistant to fading. This is because the fibres are completely saturated with colour. This is different from standard outdoor cushions that sometimes coat or finish their cushions to add colour.

What brands are resistant to fading?

Not all cushion manufacturers offer great quality products. As the largest custom cushion manufacturer in Australia, Cushion Factory is dedicated to providing long-lasting outdoor cushions. Our top anti-fade brands include:

Sunbrella Outdoor Cushions Australia

If there’s one thing you can count on with Sunbrella outdoor cushions it’s that the fabric doesn’t fade. Sunbrella is unmatched when it comes to anti-fading and weather resistance.

Made from 100% solution-dyed acrylic fibres, these cushions incorporate UV stabilised pigments, which differs from other fabrics which retain dyes only on the outer layer.

Dyed to the core, Sunbrella outdoor cushions will keep your outdoor space vibrant and full of colour for longer. To explore the wide range of Sunbrella outdoor cushions, get in touch with us at Cushion Factory.

Warwick Outdoor Cushions Australia

Warwick cushions are a great alternative to Sunbrella cushions. They are made from olefin, which is otherwise known as polypropylene. Warwick fabrics have a unique chemical structure that translates into high degradation rates against sunlight.

Warwick outdoor cushions also offer high performance and optimum efficiency levels. They are extremely durable and water-resistant, which means that you will save money on cushion fabrics over the years.
