This SP Series All Weather Fabric gallery is an extension of our AWF Series All Weather Fabric Gallery. Both of these fabric galleries (SP & AWF Series) contain the same type of fabric, Spun Polyester. We had to split our selection into two series because of too many complications in making the selection menus work more elegantly for our customers.

All Weather Fabric is in fact Spun Polyester Fabric. The name All Weather was a made up marketing term designed to help sell the product for both indoor and outdoor use. Spun Polyester fabric is a very durable product and is totally resistant to water, mold and mildew. Mold and mildew will not grow on polyester like it would with organic fabrics like cotton.

Spun polyester fabric has one of the largest selections of patterns of any cushion fabric available because any pattern or color can be placed on the Spun Polyester Fabric base. Artists can design any picture or pattern with any color and have it made into Spun Polyester Fabric.

Spun Polyester Fabric is used to make any kind of cushions or pillows for indoor or outdoor furniture. The fabric wears very well and holds up to the outdoor elements quite well. Very slowly over time, the inks will fade a bit when exposed for long periods to ultraviolet sunlight. To protect against fading, keep them protected from the direct sun when they are not being used. Either cover your outdoor furniture and cushions with furniture covers or move your cushions and pillows inside out of the sun when they are not being used.
For most people, Spun Polyester Fabrics are economical and provide the largest selection of patterns when compared to all other outdoor fabrics. Many patterns have companion fabrics that can be used to complement each other. For instance, you can choose a pattern for a chair seat and a solid for a throw pillow.
Fabrics are 54 inches wide on the bolt. Repeat of patterns differ between selections.
