What is outdoor fabric?

Outdoor fabric is the perfect blend of style and function. Outdoor fabric, such as outdoor upholstery fabric, is a type of material that is suitable for use outside, for example, in the garden, for clothing, for camping and other outdoor pursuits.

It can be waterproof fabric, specifically designed to repel water or outdoor cushion fabric which is durable, water-resistant and, equally as important, soft and comfortable.

There are also specific fabrics which work best for outdoor clothing usage, thanks to their myriad of properties. Materials can be made from synthetic or natural fibres or a blend of both.

There are several types of outdoor fabric which have either natural attributes that make them suitable for outdoor use, or have been made specifically for that purpose. Some of these include:
  • Fleece
  • Canvas
  • Oilcloth
  • Polyester
  • Nylon
  • Neoprene
  • Treated cotton
  • Cotton canvas
  • Duck cloth

How is it manufactured?

Outdoor fabrics are made from a variety of fibres or fibre blends. They are designed to be more durable than indoor fabrics and undergo a chemical treatment process during manufacturing that ensures they will resist mildew and stains, amongst other things.

Purposes of outdoor fabric

All fabrics are created for a purpose, and outdoor fabrics are made to withstand extreme weather and temperatures.

Outdoor upholstery fabric and outdoor cushion fabric can help you to create a unique outdoor space. To offer protection from the sun or rain, you might need outdoor canopy fabric to make a parasol for patios, outdoor furniture or a swimming pool.

Outdoor clothing needs specific fabrics to ensure that they keep you warm or cool, dry and that they can move easily without restriction.


Outdoor fabrics have many properties which make them essential for everyday life. They are woven fibres which differ in durability and strength. Some of the most vital characteristics include:
  • Resistant to water
  • Do not promote mildew growth
  • Resistant to staining
  • Offer some form of UV protection
  • Durable
  • Insulating
  • Resistant to fading
  • Resistant to creasing and shrinking
  • Strong
  • Easy to clean

Advantages of outdoor fabric

Outdoor textiles allow you to highlight your style and provide exceptional functionality. There are many advantages to these fabrics which makes them superior to other materials that are intended for indoor use. Best of all, they can hold up to the elements without sacrificing style.

Outdoor fabrics have come a long way over the years, thanks to technological advancements in textiles. They are made to withstand UV rays, pollen, dirt, mildew and precipitation. They can also be cleaned very easily.

Another advantage of outdoor fabric is that you can use them indoors. Thanks to their stain and water-resistant properties, not to mention their robust and durable nature, they are perfect to use in homes with children, pets or high-traffic areas.
