Today’s outdoor fabrics come in a great array of colours, textures and patterns. We thought to make a review on the latest outdoor textile that have caught our eyes.
Every year, we see new improved technology for this type of textile. Outdoor fabrics used to fade easily, peel, get mouldy and stain to no return of its original look.
Even though It’s not recommended to leave your colourful cushions outside all year long, with care and good habits it will last you a long time.
Soon textile will be named as “transitional textiles” instead of just outdoor fabrics. Making use for outdoor as well as for indoor.
Specifying for indoor use is a great solution for families and also making pet-friendly space, the fabric is so easy to wipe clean and has that extra heavy resistance for wear and tear.
The improved manufacturing of synthetic fibres, like olefin, create a textile close to a feel of cotton or strong linen weave, making them perfect for indoor as for outdoor.
Olefin is polyethylene or a polypropylene types of engineered plastics.
The finish of these textiles are so beautiful, we can now see velvet, linen or cotton style.
The new collections of our favourite suppliers are superb and worth considering for your outdoor space.
Deep blue colour selection from The textile and Design Studio, Coast Collection. These textiles work so nicely together, it will spruce any outdoor space for sure!
This collection by Mokum and in collaboration with Tait. has created the most luxurious outdoor velvet. The feel is so soft and the colourways resonate with the Australian landscape. We were lucky to discover this rich palette at the launch of this collection in 2019.
