Awning Fabric - What type of fabric is used for the awning? Did a fabric company manufacture awning?

Thank you so much. I was intrigued because the billowy effect is very moorish in nature. I am in search of coverage for a pergola in my very sunny backyard of a home that has very very strong North African features.Your info will be very helpful.

Check out Corradi. They specialize in exterior shading systems. You should be able to find an authorized dealer in your area.

Who makes the fabric curtains between the beams and how do they retract?

Hi Lionel, this awning was already in place before we did our remodel so we do not know the specifics of the fabric. I can tell you that it is an exterior grade, open-weave fabric. The fabric is hooked on to a track along both sides and is moved by pulling a detachable rod. Hope this helps!

Trying to reverse engineer your awning! - Can you tell me what you used as a suspension system, and how wide the awning is? This would be the perfect solution on my deck. Thanks so much.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Looking for a simpler application that can save a few bucks? Drape a lightweight outdoor fabric underneath an outdoor arbor for subtle shading. If you don't have an arbor, you can add rings to the fabric and place it on wires, so you can open and close it like a curtain.Tell us: How do you get ready for spring and summer outside?
