You may have heard us talk about the Nuvella™ fabric on our Outdoor furniture. Some call it performance fabric, we call it wonder fabric. We can't help but brag about its incredible abilities as an outdoor material, so here's some quick facts about Nuvella:
Due to the solution-dye process used to manufacture Nuvella, it has a much smaller environmental impact. This process doesn't generate doesn't generate the water waste and drainage associated with typical forms of fabric dying. As an added bonus, Nuvella is made with 100% recyclable fiber.
Nuvella is a 100% solution-dyed material, meaning the dye is added directly to the molten polymer, then the dyed fibers emerge as that colour. By adding the dye at this stage, the fibers are 100% coloured through and through. Generally, the sun causes fading by ’removing’ the top layer of colour and ‘revealing’ the base colour that was originally dyed. Since each and every fiber is 100% coloured, there’s no top layer of colour to ‘remove’ and no base colour to ‘reveal’. The same logic is applied to constant friction. You can take our outdoor products home knowing it is made with quality material.
This material isn't just made for outdoors. It's soft to the touch so you won't be sacrificing on comfort, it looks beautiful in indoor settings, and you get the added benefits of the durability of an outdoor material. Can you say transitional spaces?
Because of how the material is dyed and its incredible resistance to fading, this also makes it exceptionally easy to keep clean. Clean cushion stains or spills (or canopy) with a solution of 2 oz. mild soap to 1 gallon of lukewarm water. Use soft bristle brush, rinse well and let air dry. For stubborn stains: use 1 cup bleach to 1 gallon of water. Spray solution on non-coated side of fabric. Do not soak with solution as it will damage the protective UV coating. Rinse immediately.
With its wearability, durability and stability, Nuvella is perfect for everyday life because it’s the fabric that lasts. Most importantly, it enhances your home inside and out and is something you and your family can enjoy for many years to come.
