How it’s made

Through our wealth of experience at TenCate Outdoor Fabrics and keenness to innovate, we have developed a new sun awning fabric. Durability and colour fastness are always key to the technical design of our products. Due to its light composition, our fabric is suitable for various sun awning systems.

The basis for our fabric in the collection is a textile substrate of polyester. The fabric undergoes multiple production processes. During each process, the focus is on a different functionality, resulting in a fabric with several unique properties.
