Sorry for the delay. The sails are made of HDPE material. They are highly durable. We have sails that have been up for 10 years.

"A similar material originally had agricultural uses as a plant cover, and was typically black," Allen explains. "Companies in Australia started adding color and UV filters to make them applicable for other designs." After admiring them while living in Australia, Allen came back to the States and cofounded Tenshon.
