12/07/2013 - Dickson
, the global leader in outdoor fabrics, is introducing three new lines in its famous Sunbrella® Collection
. Sunbrella® Renaissance
is the first upholstery fabric made with recycled fibres. One of the all-time great fashion trends, the strap, is making its debut in the outdoor/marine fabric world with the new Sunbrella® Straps
collection. Last but not least, the Sunbrella® Terry
collection was specially developed for the boating world to ensure optimal comfort at sea.
Solution-dyed in the very core of the fibres, Sunbrella® fabrics
are uniquely designed to stand up to all types of weather and all outdoor settings: gardens, patios and boats. Backed by a five-year warranty, Sunbrella® fabrics are protected by a high-tech beading treatment which is particularly effective against stains, grease, liquids as well as chlorinated and salt water splashes. Attractive, easy to care for and to coordinate with any decorating style, they add a refined, designer touch to outdoor living.

Sunbrella® Renaissance the first Sunbrella® Fabric made with recycled fibres
The new Sunbrella® Renaissance collection, made with up to 50% recycled fibres, is available in three beautiful styles with a wide range of colours and designs that can be elegantly mixed and matched: Heritage – a lovely array of seven solids; Parker – three new striped patterns for a fanciful flair; and Sax – six herringbone patterns for a chic, sophisticated look.
The recycled fibres are taken directly from the factories where the fabric remnants are divided by colour batches, reconditioned as fibres and woven together with fresh, new Sunbrella® fibres. The Sunbrella® Renaissance collection features 16 exquisite references, all protected by a special weather-proofing, stain-proofing treatment and backed by a five-year warranty. This collection provides a vintage feel with a modern twist for an eye-catching, comfortable, environmentally-friendly outdoor setting.
Sunbrella® Straps the strap effect steals the spotlight
A fundamental trend, the strap weaves its braids on today’s chairs, benches and other types of designer seats. By launching its first collection of outdoor straps (Sunbrella® Straps), in collaboration with the style team, Dickson offers outdoor furniture makers an exciting opportunity to personalize and market customizable products.
Using two types of weave (canvas and braided), they can create their own unique straps, drawing from the vast array of predefined colours. The first solution-dyed acrylic fibre Straps to hit the market, this collection provides unparalleled resistance to UV rays and coordinates exquisitely with all the Sunbrella® Outdoor fabrics. Thanks to the reinforced spinning of the yarn, it also provides the comfort and durability needed for this very specific application on seats and backs of chairs.
Sunbrella® Terry for the pleasure of being at sea
Sunbrella® launches its Sunbrella® Terry collection, catering to the specific needs of the boating market. This clever range of terry cloth fabrics particularly appeals to the many boat owners who must cover their leather or leatherette seats with cotton to protect their skin from the heat.
Unlike most cotton fabrics – that do not withstand the wear and tear of repeated machine washing and extended exposure to UV rays very well – the new Sunbrella® Terry fabric guarantees long lasting colourfastness and UV protection as well as effective resistance to mould and the rigours of a marine environment (salt water in particular) thanks to the solution-dyed fibres used in its unique weave. It is also softer, thicker and more comfortable than fabric made mostly with cotton. A luxurious knitted terry cloth designed to optimize the texture, performance and elasticity.
