Outdoor fabrics

Swimming pools, gardens, terraces, chill-out areas, are there fabrics prepared for humidity and sun? The answer is yes, and at Equipo DRT we offer a very varied collection of fabrics to dress spaces outside the home. It is important to know that they are resistant and washable fabrics so that they last in the most extreme conditions, both in upholstery fabrics and in curtain fabrics.

Outdoor fabrics are characterized by having been designed for greater resistance, that is, so that they do not spoil or stop being perfect even if they are outdoors. So that while we enjoy a bath or are sunbathing, the fabric that is in our outdoor furniture is kept in optimal conditions for much longer than normal fabric.

And this, how is it achieved? Well, thanks to innovation in the field of textile fibers. Outdoor fabrics are woven from mass-dyed acrylic fibers, a particularity that allows them not to lose color. In fact, Equipo DRT fabrics are guaranteed for a minimum of six years. In six years in the sun, these fabrics for curtains and upholstery do not lose their color in the sun.

Many times we have doubts about what materials to use in outdoor areas and here it is important to know the origin of the qualities used for cushions, covers, sofas and curtains. In the market, as in everything, there are many brands that speak of outdoor fabric but are not really prepared for years of resistance. It is always important to know what a brand guarantee is behind, that it will take care of the promises made about the products they market.

The most used color for outdoor fabrics is white, perhaps because a feeling of freshness and summer is sought when we decorate the terrace or garden. A color that, a priori, can get very dirty, but with the outdoor fabrics from Equipo DRT it is also prepared for cleaning. All fabrics can be washed with bleach, diluted bleach, yes. It is recommended to use approximately one third of bleach and two thirds of water. And they are machine washable fabrics, in a washing machine, with cold water and without strong spin.

 

OUTDOOR CURTAINS

Spring and summer are the most propitious seasons for your enjoyment, in which the characteristics of the fabrics take center stage due to their design, their aesthetics, and also due to their technical characteristics. These are fabrics that are resistant to fading and anti-mould, as well as easy to clean. Double qualities for the best outdoor textile decoration also in curtains.

The curtains designed for the exterior have the same technical characteristics as the fabrics for cushions. What changes is the weight of the textiles, which are lighter and also more transparent. In the Equipo DRT collection, Malta and Chill-out are two fabrics for this use.

 

OUTDOOR FABRICS

In addition to outdoor curtains, we find another outstanding aspect when it comes to decorating outdoor environments: the fabrics that decorate chairs, cushions, armchairs and loungers. Outdoor fabrics that enhance our well-being when we are ready to enjoy some time in the sun, a read, a good conversation or a drink with friends in the best of settings.

And then comes the time for everyone to decide what makes them feel more comfortable and relax more if possible: whether plain colors, classic stripes -medium and uniform- or thicker stripes or with different colors and combinations.

At Equipo DRT we have designed outdoor fabrics with all the variables. Thus, Thira, Pitiusa, Nautica, Elba, Eolo, Kytira or Tyrreno are the names of the outdoor fabrics in our Thira collection, which by name alone make us flow, transport us to the islands and their warm environments, to the wind, to the sea breeze… Do you feel it? Which one do you prefer?

 

FABRICS FOR CUSHIONS AND OUTDOOR TERRACES

The term 'outdoor' takes us to open spaces, to exteriors where we enjoy the surroundings, the sun and the possibilities that natural light and nature itself offer us: balconies, terraces, boats, yachts...

Environments in which the cushions are the key pieces to give it the color and texture that best accompany it. For example, if you opt for a white fabric we can play with the texture based on fabrics such as Mar, Elba or Gavina.

Another good option is to bet on striped fabrics. Sailor stripes like Cabrera or Formentera, in red, yellow, green, blue and gray tones, are a must for outdoor cushions and mats.

And if what you are looking for is total differentiation, the collection of fabrics designed by Javier Mariscal for Equipo DRT will be the best ally. Author design fabrics, very colorful, with abstract plant motifs, flowers, rhombuses, which convey the personality of the creator of Cobi.

 

WATERPROOF FABRIC OR CANVAS VS. FABRIC WITH TEFLON

Another of the final technical factors in an outdoor fabric is Teflon; With this finish we ensure that the fiber repels liquids, such as water or oil. In this it is necessary to qualify: repellent does not mean waterproof. Let's not confuse the terms because repellent is that the liquid slips but if pressure is exerted it can penetrate inside.

An outdoor fabric or waterproof canvas is usually a plastic in which it is impossible for water to pass through, but outdoor fabrics have a Teflon treatment, but the fiber has a pore; one thing is that it repels water and another that if gravity exerts its force it ends up penetrating.

Have we helped you choose the best outdoor fabric option? Let's hope so. Now all that remains is to enjoy the outdoors surrounded by the best decoration.
