In the long run, spending on a good quality outdoor cushion fabric will save you money, because your cushions will last alot longer. Here are a few good quality outdoor fabrics that are well worth the money;

Solution-Dyed Acrylics – These fabrics are dyed before they produce the yarn. This helps maintain their vibrancy and water resistancy. Acrylic fabrics remain soft to the touch and therefore are very comfortable. Fabrics such as Canvas are made this way.

Acrylic-Coated Polyester – For a fabric that is naturally durable, fade, mildew and wrinkle resistant, acrylic-coated polyester is a good choice. Companies that manufacture this fabric will use a polyester weave and dip in an acrylic coating to create colour and durability.

Olefin – Olefin is a good synthetic material, that is durable and retains its colour. Although this fabric is durable, it is soft and comfortable. This fabric is ideal for replacement patio cushions that face humid, wet conditions.
