Presenting OUTDURA - A Textile Mill

New Mill - New Fabric - New DESIGNS 

The best  part of my job, by far, is the introduction of new fabrics being launched from various mills around the world.  Today we are adding a new textile mill formally to our distribution - Sattler Outdura!

OUTDURA has been manufacturing textiles since 1904.  There fabrics are ideally suited for use in upholstery (both indoor and outdoor applications); umbrellas; as well as, custom industrial applications.

Outdoorfabrics.com is excited to introduce this beautiful collection of woven fabric including modern geometric and floral styles along with both traditional cabana style stripes and bold eclectic stripe variations featured below.  In stock now and ready to ship!

Outdura material is 54" wide and manufactured using solution-dyed premium acrylic for all of their casual furniture fabrics.  Solution-dyed means that the pigment is already added to the yarn during the manufacturing process for superior life expectancy out in the field.  It also means that the yarns are bleach safe and stain resistant!

How to Care for 

your  Outdura Fabrics

Our fabrics are made of 100% solution-dyed acrylic fibers which are capable of withstanding the high demands of outdoor use. To keep your fabric looking its best, we suggest cleaning the fabric at the first signs of dirt or stains.
For routine maintenance of your fabrics, we recommend cleaning each spring season.

Normal Stains/Dirt

1. Remove loose dirt with a soft bristle brush or hose down with cold water.
2. Clean with mixture of water and mild soap. Rub in mixture with soft brush and allow to thoroughly soak into the fabric.
3. Rinse thoroughly with cold water and air dry.
4. Never use water over 100° Fahrenheit. Do not machine dry. For light cleaning, avoid the use of detergents.

Stubborn Stains/Dirt

1. Before bleach cleaning, make sure fabric is dry and has been vacuumed, and that the space is ventilated.
2. Prepare a 10% bleach solution in water.
3. Test the solution in an inconspicuous location first before applying over the entire fabric.
4. Apply the cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle.
5. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing with a sponge or soft bristle brush. make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not ot spread the stain. Rinse your sponge or brush frequently.
6. Allow cleaning solution to linger on the stain no more than 1 hour.
7. Rinse thoroughly to remove all residual bleach from the fabric.
8. Allow fabric to air dry.
9. Repeat process if necessary.
