I recently started jazzing up my outdoor lounge. I had painted it white and Mum had started recovering the cushions with calico as the lining.
I had been trying to find a suitable outer fabric that wouldn't fade from the sunlight. I couldn't find anything locally that I liked or could afford. I ended up finding this one at an online American shop, fabric.com. Surprisingly adding the postage costs to the price of the fabric still made this a far cheaper option than buying anything locally. From the time the order was processed to the time it arrived to my door step was less than a week.
Here is a blurb on it.
outdoor solarium fabric is solution dyed (solution-dye process is when
the color is manufactured into and throughout the fiber, the color is
part of the finished fabric). This gives the fiber consistent and
durable color that stands up in tough environments, such as sustained
direct sunlight. This fabric will withstand 5,000 hours sunlight and is
perfect for porches, patios, deck side, pool side and boat side"
Now I just have to wait until Mum has time to sew these for me.
