A fundamental trend, the strap weaves its braids on todays chairs, benches and other types of designer seats. By launching its first collection of outdoor straps (Sunbrella Straps), in collaboration with the style team, Dickson offers outdoor furniture makers an exciting opportunity to personalize and market customizable products. Using two types of weave (canvas and braided), they can create their own unique straps, drawing from the vast array of predefined colours.
The first solution-dyed acrylic fibre Straps to hit the market, this collection provides unparalleled resistance to UV rays and coordinates exquisitely with all the Sunbrella Outdoor fabrics. Thanks to the reinforced spinning of the yarn, it also provides the comfort and durability needed for this very specific application on seats and backs of chairs.

Sunbrella launches its Sunbrella Terry collection, catering to the specific needs of the boating market. This clever range of terry cloth fabrics particularly appeals to the many boat owners who must cover their leather or leatherette seats with cotton to protect their skin from the heat.
Unlike most cotton fabrics that do not withstand the wear and tear of repeated machine washing and extended exposure to UV rays very well the new Sunbrella Terry fabric guarantees long lasting colourfastness and UV protection as well as effective resistance to mould and the rigours of a marine environment (salt water in particular) thanks to the solution-dyed fibres used in its unique weave.
It is also softer, thicker and more comfortable than fabric made mostly with cotton.
