Here are our top five ways Sunbrella will make your summer easier:
1. Water Resistant: Looking to spend time poolside in style? Because Sunbrella is water resistant, one of its best uses is by the pool. Perfect for draperies and pillows.
2. Easy to Clean: In addition to being stain repellant, Sunbrella is extremely easy to clean, making it the perfect fabric for parties or anywhere spills are bound to occur.
3. Durability: Sunbrella’s industrial grade fabrics are highly durable and can withstand jumping pets, wild weather, and active children. You won’t have to replace it as often as other fabrics because Sunbrella is engineered to last two to ten times longer than conventional fabrics.
4. Indoor/Outdoor: Sunbrella fabrics transition beautifully between indoors and outdoors, helping you maintain the design flow of your house. With hundreds of fabrics to choose from, you’ll definitely find something you love!
5. Health and Eco Benefits: Sunbrella fabrics make stylish, functional awnings that also help protect against UV rays. Shady areas may also reduce your home’s air conditioning bill. Studies show that the shade created from fabric awnings or draperies helps prevent the sun’s heat from entering the home through windows.
Quality custom made Sunbrella draperies, shades and pillow are available from DrapeStyle. Made in the USA for over 16 years, DrapeStyle will deliver a product you will be proud to feature in your home. Order samples of any Sunbrella fabric or contact us for more information.
It’s starting to warm up (finally!) and I think just about everyone experienced a colder than usual winter this year and we’re all looking forward to warmer days!
And as the weather gets warmer, we will start to venture outside. So, if your outdoor space ready for Spring? Do you need to freshen up your outdoor cushions, drapes and pillows?
DrapeStyle has a large selection of performance fabrics to brighten your outdoor space and provide privacy and protection from the wind and sun. And as always, you can customize your outdoor drapes to your specifications.

It’s the middle of February and half of the country is enduring ice-cold temperatures. The weather report is “cold”, “colder” and even “coldest”. So, lets all change the conversation! Let’s start looking forward to spring! Believe it or not it will be here before you know it and now is the time to start getting your outdoor furnishings ready to enjoy every moment.
So, let’s talk about getting some new custom outdoor drapery from DrapeStyle. We offer a wide variety of amazing outdoor fabrics from Sunbrella (the leader in outdoor fabrics) that make beautiful custom drapes, shades and pillows. Whether you like bold stripes, neutral solids and modern prints, chances are we have you covered. Our designers can help you determine the exact sizes you need and offer some great suggestions on coordinating fabrics.
Retailers such as Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware offer outdoor drapery with grommets. But what if you would like a different pleat style? These stores only offer outdoor draperies in 50″ widths. What if you need your drapes wider (or smaller) than 50″? When you order from DrapeStyle, you are getting 100% American made custom drapes at the exact width, length and pleat style you need.
We’ll need approximately six weeks to make your custom outdoor drapes which means, if you order now, you should expect them to be delivered the first part of April. Order now and you’ll have one more thing to look forward too with Springs’ arrival!

With summer in full swing outdoor showers are being used often after trips to the beach or lake, or even just showering off while enjoying the outdoors and nature.
Whether spending a day at the beach, exploring the forest or working in the garden, outdoor living gets dirty pretty fast. Instead of tracking the outdoors into the house at the end of the day, outdoor showers are a luxury that is surprisingly affordable.
If you live near the ocean or simply want an outdoor shower, opt for an enclosure that gives you the privacy you desire. Outdoor shower enclosures are available in a wide range of prices. The enclosures offer privacy so you can shower in the buff and change outside, without upsetting the neighbors.
An outdoor shower enclosure gives you far more freedom of use for an outdoor shower. Instead of a place for a quick rinse, you can supply soap and towels, and use complete showering facilities. You can even install a simple solar water heater to provide you with a few minutes of hot water to bathe with.
And when you are ready to add a shower curtain, contact us. DrapeStyle has been in business for over 15 years. We would be happy to custom make a curtain for your outdoor (or indoor) shower. Please visit our outdoor drapery page and see the beautiful shades of genuine Sunbrella fabrics.
And as always, your curtains will be made here in the USA.
The warmer weather draws us outdoors to dine, entertain and play. Sunbrella fabrics can create an outdoor space you can be proud of. View our collection of sweet and strong Sunbrella fabrics.
Taken from the Sunbrella website:
Sunbrella is founded on the belief that fabrics should be both beautiful and functional. We began in the 1960s with the challenge of creating an awning canvas with a substantially longer lifespan than cotton. Sunbrella has become widely adopted for shade structures, marine canvas and upholstery fabric for both outdoor and indoor applications.
Our textiles are made with close attention to design detail, and engineered with robust performance characteristics that provide resistance to fading and degradation from sunlight and chemical exposure. The fabric is tactile yet durable, has industry-leading environmental characteristics, is easy to care for and offers long life – wherever it’s used.
Each yard of Sunbrella performance fabric is a product of a global support team committed to producing only the most exceptional performance textiles you can buy.
Sunbrella fabrics are manufactured in facilities around the globe. Our main manufacturing location is a one million square foot facility in South Carolina, USA. This Anderson, South Carolina plant features a completely vertical ISO 9001 and 14001 certified manufacturing operation, R&D center and testing lab. This facility established the blueprint for our plants in Lille, France and Suzhou, China, manufacturing locations that enable us to best serve our customers in those regions. Sunbrella is always manufactured to the same standards and is delivered when you need it, anywhere in the world.
Research and Development
Our R&D department is continually pushing the envelope for what is possible with Sunbrella textiles. R&D spearheads our efforts to continually improve and refine the durability characteristics of Sunbrella fabrics. R&D also develops solutions for new textile designs, constructions and applications to fit needs in the marketplace for superior performance textiles.
The Sunbrella design team operates in the United States and Europe. This group of experienced textile designers brings diverse industry experience and is actively involved in stock line design, collaborative collections and custom line development. Sunbrella designers travel extensively to gather trend intelligence, design analysis and color forecasts – knowledge they share with our manufacturing partners to bring to market the latest in home décor, shade innovation and marine styling.
How to Clean
All Sunbrella® fabrics are engineered to combine the highest level of design and performance. For easy day-to-day maintenance of your Sunbrella fabric:
Brush off loose dirt.
Spray on a cleaning solution of water and mild soap.
Use a soft bristle brush to clean.
Allow cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.
Rinse thoroughly until all soap residue is removed.

Drapes and curtains never go out of style! The fabric might but not the style.
From the beginning, window coverings were used for protection from the elements, for privacy, and to help keep the cold or warmth inside the home. The same holds true for today. Window coverings can help insulate your windows and help lower heating or cooling bills. Window coverings can provide much needed privacy-unless you don’t mind that your neighbors know what you’re up to! And window coverings can provide much needed color, texture and interest to your walls.
In the medieval times the more clothes people wore, the richer they were. The same rule applied to their homes and window treatments, the more fabrics and colors the window had the richer the family was. That’s how valances, cornices and curtains with trim were designed, to show the wealth of the family.
When I tell people that I design custom window treatments for a living they often ask, “Do people still buy curtains?”. And the answer is yes. Now, not everyone wants a beautifully textured silk drape with heavy lining, but we have a variety of styles and fabrics to choose from. Whether your taste is modern or classic, contemporary or industrial, we have something for everyone.
The benefit of purchasing draperies hasn’t always existed. At one time, window treatments were only available for purchase at stores. But now you can enjoy shopping from your home with the ease and convenience of online shopping. Looking for hard to find sizes? Let us make a custom sized drape or Roman shade for you. All shipped for free, directly to you.
DrapeStyle has been in business for over 15 years. We continue to custom make quality drapes, shades and pillows by hand. Nothing is ready made. Well made draperies will last 10-20 years or more. DrapeStyle’s way of making custom products takes a little more time and cost a little more but we think it’s worth it. We think you’ll be pleased.
“Can I use outdoor fabrics indoors?” I get this question a lot. The answer is simply, yes.
Today’s outdoor fabrics are durable, fade resistant, stain resistant and drape beautifully. They are perfect for high traffic areas, kids rooms, and places where pets reside. You wouldn’t know that the fabrics were made for outdoors; they are of such high quality, and excellent hand that you can really use them anywhere. Pillows, sofas, draperies, dining room chairs, ottomans, you name it. I have personally sold our outdoor fabric for all of these uses and they turned out beautiful.
There are so many colors and patterns to choose from that you are sure to find something to compliment your decor. If you don’t see it on our website, let us know and we will order it for you.
Clean up is a breeze. Simply remove any debris before cleaning. Then wash area with soap and water. Usually this will do this trick but you may also try laundering the upholstery covers. For mold and mildew, you may need to wash with a water and bleach solution.
Please contact for more information on using outdoors fabrics, or view our collection of fabrics here. DrapeStyle has been in business for over 15 years. We continue to custom make quality drapes, shades and pillows by hand. Nothing is ready made. DrapeStyle’s way of making custom products takes a little more time and cost a little more but we think it’s worth it. We think you’ll be pleased.
If you go online and search for hammocks or garden swings there are literally thousands to choose from. Don’t have a couple of trees to hang your hammock? Not a problem, stands are available for most of them. Every color, style, shape and material is available. What a great way to enjoy these warmer days!
Even the traditional porch swing has been updated. What a comfy way to enjoy a visit with friends, read a book or take a nap!
Claims that sleeping in a hammock can lead to faster, deeper sleep and there’s no pressure points. Sleeping outdoors can expose you to fresher air, it can reduce stress and with a reduction in blue lights or florescent lights, your melatonin levels may increase.
If you’re thinking of adding some fun to your outdoor space, consider DrapeStyle. We can make outdoor pillows and outdoor curtains to match your hammock or swing. We only use quality outdoor fabrics from Sunbrella and Schumacher. For more information about our custom outdoor items, please visit our website or contact us here. We have been making quality custom draperies, Roman shades and pillows for over 15 years. We would love to help you design your dream drapes!
