Olefin umbrellas are made with canopies crafted from synthetic olefin fibers. Olefin has inherent beneficial properties such as strength, fade resistance, and mold and mildew resistance which make it an ideal fabric for umbrella canopies.
Olefin is a premium fabric option for umbrellas and rates better than polyester and cotton for outdoor durability. Olefin is typically a less expensive fabric choice than acrylic fabrics such as Sunbrella, but meets the same standards of performance as these acrylic fabrics. Olefin umbrellas are available in the latest colors and patterns and are offered by top brand name umbrella makers featured on this site.
