The counterpart to Plein Air, outdoor upholstery Al Fresco offers the look of rattan while providing durability and affordability. Woven on a double beam, this 54" pattern uses two sets of warps: a spun polyester that binds the rows and a polyethylene that creates horizontal stripes. By using two tensions, the weave creates dimension, giving the pattern its ribbed, ottoman look. The polyethylene weft has a polyester stuffer pick, adding some physical dimension, and combines with a polyester fabric backing to pass 75,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Available in fresh, fashion-forward colors*, Al Fresco is ideal for outdoor cafés. |
* Color variations in the warp yarns are inherent to this fabric.
