Sunbrella Contract is excited to launch a new partnership with Standard Textile Interiors, slated to debut June 2021. This new collection uses Sunbrella Assure, an environmentally-conscious fluorine-free technology for durable, water repellent, and stain resistant fabrics that promotes a healthier environment. Sunbrella Assure meets the Heathier Hospital Initiative (HHI) goals for a safer environment, while giving designers the freedom of fabric options with bright and dynamic patterns.
What does Florine-Free Fabric Mean?
Fluorine-free stain resistance lowers the negative impact on our world and our health. Fabrics featuring Sunbrella Assure deliver stain resistance through a proprietary bio-based formula that combats the absorption of water-based spills and messes without the use of fluorochemicals. The base compound in this technology contains 63% renewably sourced content derived from a variety of plant-based sources, carefully selected to be from non-genetically modified (non-GMO) and non-food-source feedstock.
About Sunbrella Assure
Sunbrella Assure was designed with the healthcare and hospitality industries in mind. Whether it be waiting rooms, senior living residences, doctors’ offices, or hotel lobbies, fabrics with Assure technology offer a beautiful, soft texture and appearance, while remaining durable in high-traffic scenarios.
Sunbrella Assure supports abrasion resistance up to 100,000 double rubs. Fabrics featuring this new technology deliver on these high-performance standards while fulfilling the Sunbrella brand promise of thoughtful design and functionality, all while staying soft to the touch. As with all other Sunbrella products, fabrics with Assure technology include fade resistance, bleach-cleanability, and the ability to be sanitized.
Sunbrella Assure technology also achieves OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and Facts Silver Certifications and is compliant with the Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI) and Prop 65.
View the Collection
The new collection with Standard Textiles features three patterns in various colorways:
Westwood is available in eight colorways with a handwoven, artisan feel. This provides a classic, textural option that will pair beautifully with both solids and patterns.
Chimera is available in six colorways and features a beautiful, mid to large scale abstract pattern with textural elements and a diverse color range.
Zion is available in four colorways. This geometric pattern offers an interesting composition that will elevate any space, and its small scale doesn’t overwhelm the eye.
