Deckchair fabric is not just any old canvas material. Deckchair fabric is designed to be the right width for a deck chair and to have sufficient strength to support a person’s body weight. It is traditionally woven entirely from cotton, although some material includes a polythene warp to make it more weather resistant.
Deckchair fabric is for sale by the metre to cover new deck chair frames and as a replacement canvas for old deck chair slings. It is also popular for other outdoor furnishings such as garden cushions, directors chairs and canvas covers. The classic design for deck chair material is striped and no beach in the UK would look right without a striped deckchair.
