The superior quality of Outdura fabric has a 1500 UV resistance and water repellent/breathable (not waterproof). This fabulous outdoor futon cover has a tensile strength wrap of 235 and tensile strength filling of 140 and has been tested for 15,000 cycles of abrasion testing. This fabric is bleach cleanable & machine washable and able to be hung dry. For use either out side or in a very sunny window this futon mattress cover is soft and comfortable yet durable and will never fade.
Outdura fabrics are made using only 100% Dolan solution dyed acrylic fiber. Solution dying is a unique process in which the pigment or dye is added, along with UV stabilizers, while the fiber is still in viscous form. This locks the color in so that it cannot be faded by the sun or even bleached out with chlorine bleach! Additionally, the UV stabilizers keep the sun from dry-rotting the fabric. This is when a fabric, exposed to the sun will lose strength to the point it can literally turn to dust. Solution-dyed acrylic is a natural at resisting stains and as a further enhancement stain release finishes are added making it even more stain resistant.
Mildew is not a problem for Outdura either because acrylic will not support the growth of mildew.
To give the fabric durability and a great look and hand, ring spun yarns and staple cut fibers are used. Ring spinning has long been recognized as the premier method of producing yarns. Fabric made from ring spun yarns are softer, bulkier and more natural feeling and looking than fabric made with filament yarns of polyester, olefins or any other synthetic fiber. These fabrics are one dimensional, slick and lifeless when compared to fabrics made from ring spun yarns. Two ply yarns are used to add strength and durability making the fabric more abrasion and pill resistant. Would it be cheaper to use yarns and fibers made by other methods, certainly, but then you couldn't enjoy your outdoor futon fabrics near as much or for near as long!

Piping or welting is a thick cotton cording wrapped in fabric, that is sewn on your futon cover wherever there are seams. This decorative addition makes a futon mattress look more like a cushion or a conventional box spring style mattress as it squares of the edges and can create a complimentary color distinction when looking at your futon. Many feel this simple embellishment to their mattress or futon cover greatly adds to the look of their futon and gives extra visual dimension. For the piping you can choose the same fabric or a contrasting fabric, depending on what look you are going for. Mix and match to create a futon that is as stunning visually as it is comfortable to sleep on. If you want a square linear look to your futon just add piping. You may use a coordinating fabric and then match pillows or the same fabric to match your futon cover for thousands of stylistic possibilities. Only your imagination is the limit of our options!

The word FUTON is a Japanese word originally referring to any round mat our cushion filled with leaves. The traditional Japanese Futon is a group of three products making up a bed. The three products consist of a futon, which is a thin cotton pad, a shikibuton which is a three folding pad that sits under the thin cotton pad, and a Kakibuton which is a comforter that goes on top of the thin cotton pad.

The words fabric and cloth are used in textile assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking) as synonyms for textile. However, there are subtle differences in these terms in specialized usage. Textile refers to any material made of interlacing fibers. Fabric refers to any material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding that may be used in production of further goods (garments, etc.).

The environment will in most situations determine the type of futon slipcover you need. By environment, I am referring to not only the space itself, but the what other items are the sharing the space and who will be using it. As an example, do you have children or pets? Will this be used as a main piece of furniture in a living room, or as an occasional in the guest room. If you are in a moist environment or are planning to have your mattress outside, an acrylic outdoor futon slipcover will be ideal rather than a cotton futon slipcover as cotton absorbs moisture and the acrylic is both moisture and mold resistant. For children and pets, a microfiber futon cover may be a better option as microfiber is stain resistant, water repellent and machine washable. Learn more about What's The Best Mattress Cover?
When looking to purchase a new futon slipcover or pillow case it is important to consider its construction. There are two important factors of slipcover construction, the first being how the cover is designed, whether it uses zippers or buttons, or if there is welting or not. The other factor is what the slipcover is constructed out of, i.e. what material is used to make the slipcover. Learn more about How Mattress Covers And Pillows Made?
Cotton truly is, “the fabric of our lives.” Most of us come in contact with items made from cotton every day, from the clothes we wear, the sheets you sleep on, and even some of the food you eat. The large amount of conventional cotton production comes at a price. Growing conventional cotton requires the use of enormous amounts of toxic chemicals creating a vastly negative impact on the environment. Choosing Organically produced items will help to alleviate health risks and leave a smaller footprint on the environment. Learn more about How Does Growing Cotton Affect The Environment?
