Outtra™ is perfected for outdoor use

Outtra develops superior performance fabrics with attention to every detail from color to mold- and dirt resistance to ease of maintenance.

Next Generation No-Fade Color

AATCC Grade 5 Rated, our fabrics are 100% solution-dyed polyester textiles. Through this process, color completely permeates the fiber, resulting in a colorfast fabric that withstands even the harshest elements. Backed by an industry-leading, no-fade guarantee for 5 years from the date of purchase.

Next Generation UV-Resistance

Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, Outtra products are designed with maximum sun protection in mind. Innovation is at the heart of Outtra’s philosophy and we develop industry-leading fabrics with performance features that also maximize protection from the sun. Each product is third party laboratory tested, rated UPF 50+ which is the highest rating possible and allows less than 2% of harmful UV rays to pass through.

Next Generation Protection

Bureau Veritas Certified, Outtra fabrics resist staining even against red wine and are engineered to be mildew-resistant, mold-resistant and bleach cleanable. With a soil-resistant finish, they are designed to be easy to clean and easy to maintain for years to come.

Sustainable and Innovative for Future

Outtra textiles are GRS Certified and 100 percent recyclable and all of our materials and products can return to the cycle of production, consumption and renewal after their useful life.

We are committed to helping create a more sustainable future, adopting new manufacturing technology to dramatically reduce carbon emission and textiles’ impact on climate change.
