About the fabric:Philfertex GeoBella™ is an environmentally-friendly synthetic olefin fabric that's lightweight yet perfectly suited for outdoor use. These PVC-free 100% recyclable outdoor fabrics offer a soft touchable texture that combines the style and comfort of indoor furniture with the strength and durability needed for outdoor applications. It's composted entirely of synthetic olefin yarn that's constructed from post-industrial waste by-product. The olefin requires lower energy and water consumption to produce and the process yields little by-product. This results in the least waste and environmental impact of any synthetic fiber today. Plus the fabric is recyclable. Whether used indoors or outdoors near a sunny window or by the pool the soft comfortable yarns of the GeoBella collection are resistant to bacteria mold mildew and odor. They are also water- and fade-resistant.
