Outdura fabrics are purchased by all furniture, cushion, and umbrella manufacturers in the industry as well as jobbers, distributors and retailers. An annual line of fabrics is produced each season working to meet the time line set by the casual furniture market.
Sourcing fiber directly from Dolan (Kelheim, Germany), Outdura brings in fiber in bale form to North Carolina where the fiber is ring spun into yarn. From spinning, the yarn goes to the Outdura manufacturing facility also located in North Carolina where it is woven into solids, decorative dobbies, and jacquards. After weaving, all fabrics are inspected, finished using a proprietary finish (which further enhances the already inherent property features in the SDA fabric), and then reinspected before shipping to all parts of the world.
While the Outdura brand is just 18 years old, the industry has embraced the new brand and considers Outdura a staple in the Solution Dyed Acrylic performance fabric category. Quality, service and design are the key parts that make the Outdura brand the resource it is today.
