Acylic Fabric VS Polyester Fabric

Choosing between acrylic and polyester fabrics for your outdoor cushions can be a daunting task. Both materials offer their own set of advantages and considerations, so it's important to understand the differences before making a decision.

Acrylic Fabric


  • Excellent UV resistance: Acrylic fabrics are known for their superior resistance to fading, ensuring that your cushions retain their vibrant colors even after prolonged exposure to sunlight.

  • Soft and comfortable: Acrylic fibers are inherently soft and comfortable, providing a cozy seating experience that rivals indoor furniture.

  • Mold and mildew resistant: Acrylic fabrics are naturally resistant to mold and mildew, making them ideal for humid or damp outdoor environments.

  • Retains shape: Acrylic fibers have good elasticity and resilience, allowing cushions to maintain their shape and structure over time.


  • Higher cost: Acrylic fabrics tend to be more expensive than polyester fabrics, which may impact budget-conscious consumers.


Polyester Fabric


  • Affordable: Polyester fabrics are generally more budget-friendly than acrylic fabrics, making them a popular choice for cost-conscious consumers.

  • Wide range of colors and patterns: Polyester fabrics offer a diverse selection of colors and patterns, allowing for greater customization and versatility in outdoor decor.

  • Easy maintenance: Polyester fabrics are easy to clean and maintain, requiring minimal effort to keep them looking fresh and vibrant.

  • Quick drying: Polyester fabrics have excellent moisture-wicking properties, allowing cushions to dry quickly after exposure to rain or spills.


  • Prone to fading: Polyester fabrics may fade over time when exposed to sunlight, especially if not treated with UV inhibitors.

  • Less breathable: Polyester fabrics are not as breathable as acrylic fabrics, which may lead to discomfort in hot and humid weather.

  • Susceptible to mold and mildew: While polyester fabrics can be treated to resist mold and mildew, they are more prone to growth in damp environments compared to acrylic fabrics.

Caring for Your Outdoor Cushions

To ensure that your outdoor cushions remain in pristine condition for years to come, proper care and maintenance are essential. Here are some tips to help you keep your cushions looking their best:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Remove dirt, dust, and debris from your cushions regularly by gently brushing them with a soft-bristled brush or using a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment.

  2. Spot Cleaning: For minor spills and stains, spot clean the affected area immediately with a mild soap solution and lukewarm water. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they may damage the fabric.

  3. Deep Cleaning: For more stubborn stains or general maintenance, deep clean your cushions using a mild detergent and water solution. Allow the cushions to air dry completely before placing them back on your furniture.

  4. Storage: During inclement weather or when not in use, store your cushions in a dry, well-ventilated area to prevent mold and mildew growth. Invest in cushion storage bags or containers to protect them from dust and moisture.

  5. UV Protection: To minimize fading and prolong the lifespan of your cushions, consider investing in UV-resistant fabric treatments or using protective covers when not in use.


Replacing Your Outdoor Cushions

While our outdoor cushions are designed to withstand the elements and provide long-lasting comfort, it's important to assess their condition regularly and replace them as needed. Factors such as prolonged exposure to sunlight, frequent use, and general wear and tear can impact the lifespan of your cushions.

As a general guideline, consider replacing your outdoor cushions every 2-3 years or as soon as you notice signs of significant wear, fading, or deterioration. By staying proactive about maintenance and replacing your cushions when necessary, you can ensure that your outdoor space remains inviting and comfortable for years to come.


With our exquisite range of outdoor cushions, you can transform your patio, deck, or garden into a sanctuary of style and comfort. So why wait? Explore our collection today and discover the perfect cushions to enhance your outdoor oasis.
