Olefin

Olefin has a good texture and cover while being a light material. It is made from poly-propylene and uses a solution-dyed process. The material has a low moisture absorption and will dry quickly. Olefin is abrasion, stain, sunlight, mildew and chemical resistant and holds its color well. One of the most important properties of Olefin is it has very good resistance to color loss and it keeps its strength in wet or dry conditions.

Polyester

Polyester is a strong fiber that is resistant to creasing and keeps its shape well. The price is quite low in comparison to other umbrella cover materials with the only drawback being the color fastness of the darker materials. Our polyester is treated with a water repellent, which helps it keep clean and reduces mildew.
