POWER OF A PERFORMANCE FABRIC
There are a lucky few of us who can inherently go unaffected by life's little mishaps. For most of us, however, when things go wrong we may require some coping exercises like deep breathing, yoga, running, hiding, or the oh-so-popular screaming into a pillow. Whatever your method is for "dealing" with life's hiccups just know, you are not alone!
There is an area where we can help reduce stress. Choose power performance fabrics to beautifully power through all the little accidents inside your home and out.
Our Inside Out collection of performance fabrics are durable enough to use outdoors, but more importantly they are comfortable and durable enough to use inside! These amazing fabrics have it all. They are fade resistant, stain resistant, liquid resistant, eco-friendly, PFC-free, and made in the USA.
TO SPILLS & SPLATS WE SAY “CHECKMATE”
Our ultra-heavy performance fabric with an oversized check pattern, Checkmate is a classic design with profoundly preppy roots. At 29-ounces, this fabric is as rugged as they get. Checkmate upholstery is armed to deal with all the rain, wind, and salt air Mother Nature throws on it outside, and all the sticky lollipops and melty strawberry ice cream the kids throw at it inside. Don't waste time waffling on the decision "to check or not to check"—it's a no brainer (and a sure winner every time)!

“SHORE-BET” TO COMBAT THE CLUMSY
If you like the look of natural linen, you'll fall in love with Shore-Bet. The organic textural variation in thread width and color give this performance fabric depth and sophistication. But wait, there's more! Let's say a clumsy guest at a cocktail party drops her muddled blackberry mojito on your pale colored sofa. No worries. The liquid won't soak in. Seriously, liquid beads up on top—giving you plenty of time to grab a paper towel and blot. BONUS, it's bleach friendly. Yes, you read that right, BLEACH FRIENDLY!*
SUMMER LIVING IS NO MATCH FOR “LAGUNA”
From poolside to the kitchen counter, Laguna is our classic striped performance fabric that packs a punch. Named for one of our favorite southern California beaches, Laguna embodies open-door living. It’s a lifestyle where free-spirited children surf in the morning, break for lunch in the kitchen, and hang out by the pool on lazy summer days. We're talking about bare feet, buckets of sand, PB&Js, and bathing suits! No problem. Laguna performance fabric can keep up.

PERFORMANCE FABRICS ARE NOT ALL CREATED EQUAL
WHAT MAKES INSIDE OUT FABRIC DIFFERENT?
The cleaning technology is inherent because the fiber has color all the way through (think carrot), or because the fibers have been encapsulated by a protective coating (thank radish).
The fabric is designed to repel liquid to make it easier to clean and keep dry. Liquid spills should be blotted with a clean, dry cloth, but never rubbed!
UV & FADE RESISTANT
The upholstery is specially designed for outdoor use and durability, saturated with highly UV stable pigments to provide the ultimate protection from the degrading effects of sunlight. These fabrics hold their color like no other!
Depending on the construction, some performance fabrics can be cleaned with cleaning agents like diluted bleach, while other fabrics should only be cleaned with soap and water.
