Fabrics for Everyday Life
Introducing new Sunbrella® performance fabrics for Sien + Co
When we began dreaming of a new fabric line, we wanted to honor the authentic craftsmanship that lies at the heart of Sien + Co, while introducing the modern element of performance that puts worry-free living at the center of everything.
As a trusted brand backed by authentic, sustainable processes, Sunbrella was our only choice of partner for the simple reason that they share our dedication to uniting beautiful design with dedicated function. Like our home furnishings, Sunbrella fabrics are beautifully made in every sense: by their artistry, and by the skillful, functional design behind them. They’re wine-proof, kid-proof, pet-proof and made to enjoy everyday life.
We challenged Sunbrella to design a new line of performance fabrics for us that emulate the perfect imperfection of handcraft, with the chunky texture of wool that we love from our handwoven pieces. Together we’ve created the thickest, most texturized Sunbrella fabrics that have ever been made.
Every one of our new fabrics incorporates Sunbrella Renaissance yarns, an innovation in recycling that combines up to 50% post-industrial recycled Sunbrella fiber with virgin Sunbrella fiber. Sunbrella Renaissance yarns unite the best performance qualities of Sunbrella—incredible durability, stain resistance, and easy care—with a sustainable process that’s good for people, pets and our planet.
As part of their landfill-free manufacturing process, Sunbrella collects fiber and yarn waste, sorts it into color groups and then shreds it into smaller, reusable fibers. Those fibers are then mixed with virgin Sunbrella fibers and spun into new yarns. Natural irregularities in color and texture from the blending process result in the creation of a true ‘renaissance’ yarn—beautifully unique, with a character and charm completely its own.
