Sunbrella Renaissance Unity from Glen Raven Custom Fabrics is an innovative range of awning and shade fabrics featuring recycled content. 

Sunbrella Renaissance Unity fabrics contain 50 percent post-industrial recycled Sunbrella fibre, resulting in a vintage canvas look yet retaining all of Sunbrella’s legendary fade resistance and sun protection qualities.

Unity shade fabrics represent the third addition to Glen Raven’s family of Sunbrella Renaissance recycled offerings that encompass braided rugs and Sunbrella Renaissance Heritage upholstery fabrics introduced in 2011.

Vince Hankins, industrial business manager for Glen Raven Custom Fabrics comments that the new Unity awning and shade fabrics not only have a wonderful environmental story, but also bring a new look and feel to the Sunbrella awning fabrics range. The recycled content provides a vintage canvas look that is subtly textural.

Sunbrella Renaissance Unity fabrics have been launched in five solid colours designed to coordinate with a variety of exterior building trim and fascia materials. The five colours are Garnet, Leaf, Char, Granite and Ashe. 

As with all Sunbrella branded products, Unity fabrics are GREENGUARD Children and Schools certified as contributing to quality indoor air, making them an attractive option for use inside sun-lit atriums and solariums popular in resorts, offices and retail settings.

Sunbrella Renaissance Unity is just one element of Glen Raven’s 2013-2014 awning and marine collections to be featured during the Super Expo. 

Hankins adds that Sunbrella’s 2013-2014 awning and marine fabrics reflect the latest influences in contemporary colours and patterns for residential and commercial shade structures as well as innovative, functional and performance-driven marine canvas design. 

Renaissance has been a five-year development program by Glen Raven Custom Fabrics and select trade partners to reclaim and re-process fibre and fabric from internal and external sources, including Glen Raven’s Recycle My Sunbrella program. 

Sunbrella brand fabrics are manufactured and marketed by Glen Raven Custom Fabrics. Sunbrella is the market leader in performance fabrics for awnings, marine applications and casual furniture.
