Of course, there's nothing to stop you weaving everyday fabrics into your garden decor. But by using outdoor outdoor waterproof fabric that can take the rough and tumble of an al fresco lifetsyle, you can enjoy complete peace of mind - and stop looking out of the window for black clouds. 

A good outdoor fabric will not only be water-repellent, but also stain-resistant  and colour fast - very handy in case of spilages, or when the kids stage an impromptu water fight. Even better, by using specialist water resistant fabric for outdoor cushions, you won't have to pack your furnishings away at the end of a late-night garden party.
