Outdura Fabrics by Shuford Mills is a fifth generation, family owned business. The fabric company is headquartered in Austria and has a global focus on Solution Dyed Acrylic market segments. Outdura solution dyed acrylic outdoor fabric is ideal for use on patio umbrellas, outdoor furniture, boat seats and more.
Solution dyed acrylics are made by combining pigment and UV stabilizers with the fiber solution while it is in the liquid state. The process imparts pigment evenly throughout the fiber rather than only on the surface. This creates a product that is resistant to UV fading and damage caused by chemicals or fumes. The dyed fibers are then woven into strong sheets of material.
Outdura fabrics come in a broad spectrum of styles, colors, patterns and textures to make it easy to personalize your outdoor space. Every Outdura color collection includes coordinating stripes, jacquards and solids that can easily be mixed and matched with other Outdura colors and collections.
Outdura fabrics are manufactured in North Carolina. They are available at the retail store level and may also be purchased through select distributors. Outdura fabrics have their own proprietary fiber colors and are made with specially developed novelty yarns that allow the fabrics to have a distinct look compared to competing fabrics.
