Sunbrella® started out in 1961 and has continued to revolutionize the awning fabric industry. They debuted as a company manufacturing materials that could be used as an alternative to cotton. Their innovative fabric is made from acrylic fibers with pigmentation. These materials offer the same look and feel of cotton, but they are much more durable and won't fade as easily. The company also produces boat tops, sail covers, marine upholstery, patio furniture, and more.
