Add soft­ness and a touch of colour or tex­ture with some long-last­ing cush­ions. You’ll find a lim­ited va­ri­ety in shops but many on­line out­door-fab­ric com­pa­nies have an ex­ten­sive range of pat­terns and plains, and some of­fer a cush­ion-mak­ing ser­vice. The best fab­ric for out­door cush­ions is made from 100 per cent acrylic fi­bres, dyed in colour so­lu­tion be­fore they are wo­ven. Th­ese fab­rics are wa­ter-re­sis­tant, do not pro­mote mildew growth, and are soft and durable. They are sold as ‘out­door fab­ric’ and most take about 2000 hours of di­rect sun be­fore fad­ing.

You can also use 100 per cent spun polyester, which is more durable than in­door fab­ric, but it still fades.
