For outdoor fabrics and solution-dyed acrylic upholstery material, Big Duck Canvas is your wholesale, warehouse-direct source!
Why choose solution-dyed material for outdoor projects like awnings, boat covers, cushions and patio furniture? Ah, glad you asked!
Color Fastness: The color isn't applied to the surface, it's is actually part of the fibers. During manufacturing the acrylic fiber is dyed while it is still in a viscous form—the color is locked in before the fiber even becomes a solid. Unlike other outdoor fabric choices, the color isn't going to wear off and UV stabilizers are added to help prevent fading. In direct sun nothing lasts forever, but if you want the color to last this is the way to go. Our acrylic fabrics are available in beautiful solid colors and bold, attractive stripes.
Rough and Tough—without the rough: It's acrylic, so it's durable and long lasting. Yet our AquaDuck® is remarkably supple. It's got a very nice 'hand' that is perfect for those outdoor upholstery projects including sofa, chair and lounge chaise cushions and pillows.
Easy Care: Solution-dyed acrylic, by it's very nature, is easy to care for. It's mold and mildew resistant. And just brush it off or clean with a mild detergent and hose it down. Good to go!
