UV and Fade Resistant: Design fibers are saturated with highly UV stable pigments. Traditional dyeing methods only add color to the fiber exterior. Design fabrics’ performance characteristics are an integral part of the fabric, not an applied finish that would wash off over time.
Mold and Mildew Resistant: Design fabrics inherently resist the growth of mold and mildew. To keep your fabrics looking clean, brush off dirt and debris before it gets embedded in the fabric.
Bleach Cleanable: To easily remove tough stains, simply clean Design fabrics with a bleach solution. Because the color goes to the core of the fiber, the fabrics will not lose their color.
Sun Protection: Design shade fabrics are high in UPF protection and are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin as a part of a complete sun protection regimen, including regular use of sunscreen.
Breathable Comfort: Design shade fabrics are breathable and allow air to pass through them, creating a comfortable space below.
