Outdoor fabrics are a broad concept and, quite frankly, a matter of interpretation. Because technically, you can bring any odd fabric outside with you and make it work. 

 

Here at Selfmade® / STOFF & STIL, we primarily use outdoor fabrics for materials that can withstand being outside for more extended periods, be it because they have a high lightfastness or are water repellant.

Use hard-wearing, lightfast fabrics

When sewing cushions for your garden chairs or your lounger, we recommend using a lightfast fabric with a high Martindale score, such as Dralon. That way, you can enjoy a long-lasting result of your hard work!
