At the annual IFAI Expo—this year held in Boston, 7–9 Nov—the awning fabrics maker Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, introduced the industry’s first awning and shade fabrics featuring recycled fiber. Sunbrella® Renaissance Unity fabrics contain 50% post-industrial recycled Sunbrella fiber, resulting in a vintage canvas look that retains fade resistance and sun protection qualities.

Unity fabrics are GREENGUARD Children and Schools certified as contributing to quality indoor air. “This feature of Unity,” says Vince Hankins, industrial business manager for Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, “makes them attractive for use inside sun-lit atriums and solariums that are popular for resorts, offices and retail settings.”

    Great New fabrics

    Of course all of my customers love Sunbrella. I expect these new fabrics to be popular especially for interior cushions on boats.
