upholstery fabrics

When you need new upholstery or fabric for your patio and other outdoor furniture, trust Aaron’s Touch Up and our durable all-weather Greenhouse fabrics.  Outdoor upholstery fabric is not only suitable for standing up to sunlight and rain; it can also be used for indoor use.  These high-performance solid outdoor fabrics work just as well for pets, toddlers, and teenagers as they do when standing up to the elements.

At Aaron’s Touch Up, we recommend outdoor furniture fabric from Greenhouse Fabrics, a family company whose product we believe in and use daily.  All Greenhouse fabrics come with detailed material information, as well as care and cleaning instructions.

However, we can also use a fabric you purchase and supply.  We do not charge a fabric cutting fee or customer’s own fabric (COM) fee, but we encourage you to select a solid or printed outdoor fabric from Greenhouse because we trust the quality.  We encourage everyone to come browse our selection!  We have over a hundred sample books to choose from!  There is no charge for fabric samples – take some home to compare!   

Why Use Outdoor Fabrics?

There are almost as many outdoor fabrics as indoor ones, and the choices can seem endless.  The important thing to keep in mind when choosing an outdoor chair or patio furniture fabric is how you need it to perform.  Will you keep this furniture outside all year long?  Do you have pets or kids to keep in mind?  Will there be frequent sun exposure?    

With outdoor furniture, you do not have the same choices for padding as interior cushions.  Most batting is made of polyester foam to be mildew resistant.  And although most outdoor pillows will be water-resistant, few are truly waterproof.  It is important that in heavy rain, your cushions are protected.  Learn more about cushion replacement here.

Outdoor fabrics range from fully all-weather (under umbrellas or awnings) to those used in throw pillows and cushions.  When choosing fabric for your upholstery, select one that meets your needs.  Take into account the following attributes.

  • Fade-resistant
  • Waterproof
  • All-weather
  • UV-blocking
  • Stain-resistant
  • Breathable (permeable layers)
  • Machine washable (or at least hand-wash)
  • Mold- and mildew-resistant
