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.
