What does "Performance Fabric" mean?
Performance Fabrics are modern textiles that clean easily, resist soiling & wear, and feel like your favorite indoor fabrics to the touch.
✔ Stain-Resistant for Life - Fibers repel most staining substances -no need for chemical treatments that others may use on their fabrics. And since the stain-resistance is inherent, it never wears off, & there's nothing to reapply.
✔ Fabric protects itself from damage by mold & mildew - Weaving process sheds moisture -with no antimicrobials, antifungals or water-repelling treatments.
✔ Colorfast - Dyes are added at the same time yards are being spun -so colors won't bleed, run, or rub off on your skin & clothes.
✔ Lightfast - Most indoor fabrics are lightfast 40 hours, this fabric resists fading +300 hours.
✔ Durable - Rated to withstand 30,000 double rubs -tested to withstand years of wear and cleaning.

🌿 Upcycled from 100% pre-consumer recycled materials - Made by recovering the byproduct of another manufacturing process and turning it into yarns that are woven to make high-tech performance fabric.
🌿 Dyed without the use of water - Which means no wastewater, & no dumping of contaminants like dyes, bleaches or conditioners used to make other textiles.
🌿 No worrisome chemical treatments - No chemical treatments of any kind have been applied to our Brisbane olefin fabric cushions!
🌿 No unnecessary packaging - We do not include unnecessary plastic or styrofoam in our packing materials.
🌿 Made in USA - Our Olefin yarns are spun in the US and woven in to fabric at an American-made mill in NC
Brisbane collection cushions are made with Olefin performance fabrics that are Greenguard certified. The latex foam fill is a blend of natural and synthetic latex and is also made in USA.
Brisbane Cushions are intended to be used indoors, but because they are moisture resistant and fade resistant up to 300 hours, it is ok to occasionally use them outdoors or hang them on the line outside to dry after hand washing. Use in a semi-enclosed room such as a lanai or screened porch may also be suitable; but be sure to use chairs with a ventilated seat.
