Sien + Co challenged Sunbrella to design a new line of performance fabrics for them that emulate the perfect imperfection of handcraft, with the chunky texture of wool that they love from their original line of handwoven pieces. Together they’ve created the thickest, most texturized Sunbrella fabrics that have ever been made.
Every one of their 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 colour 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 colour 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.
