Sunbrella, a fabric made of acrylic fibers with pigmentation added prior to extrusion, offers the rich look and feel of cotton, but does not fade or degrade. Even in the brightest sun, Sunbrella offers years of carefree service. A product so drastically different from anything else available, Sunbrella has grown to be trusted as the fabric that guarantees against natural elements. Sunbrella is best known for producing fabrics that are weather-resistant and abrasion resistant.

One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella fabrics looking brand new while delaying any deep or vigorous cleaning is to properly maintain the fabrics. This can be accomplished by simply brushing off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics, wiping up spills as soon as they occur or spot cleaning soon after stains occur. Our Rex team may also provide you with easy cleaning tips once you’ve selected your favorite fabrics at the store.

Most of our customers love Sunbrella because of their reliable and long term guarantee. The company offers a 5-year limited warranty for upholstery, specialty fabrics and decorative shade fabrics and a 10-year limited warranty for shade and marine fabrics. This warranty applies to the original purchaser of Sunbrella fabric and protects against Sunbrella fabric becoming unserviceable due to color or strength loss from normal usage and exposure conditions, including sunlight, mildew and atmospheric chemicals.
