Fast home décor products have become the dominating paradigm for our sector, using products and a supply chain that prioritise profits over people and the environment. When we started Cushions Custom, we committed to a higher standard because we believe that enjoying the outdoors now should not hinder future generations from doing the same.
As a global corporate citizen, we acknowledge our responsibility not just to improve the lives of our customers, but also to improve, protect, and preserve the environment – both local and global – everywhere we operate. Fabrica Kraft and its partners are now striving to build a comprehensive vision of sustainability – adopting responsible measures in our company and in the communities where we live and work – that will help assure a better world today and in the future.
Sunbrella products are rooted in sustainability throughout the entire manufacturing process, from fiber to fabric. Our dedication to quality ensures that you are getting a product that lasts longer and needs to be replaced less often, ultimately creating less waste. All Sunbrella products are designed to hold their color and strength, outlasting traditional fabrics. Sunbrella is committed to the environment with several initiatives to minimize waste and operate a more sustainable, efficient manufacturing strategy.
We are committed to guaranteeing environmental health and safety, as well as supporting projects that will help us minimise our environmental imprint, in collaboration with our global production and distribution partners. Our activities, as well as those of our suppliers and partners, will also focus on minimising, reusing, and recycling materials in our manufacturing, as well as increasing efficiency in our distribution systems. Our mission will remain the same as it has always been: to deliver a brighter tomorrow for our customers, workers, neighbours, and the world at large. As we strive to make our customers’ lives more beautiful, we want to do the same for the world we share with them.
We carefully analyse every component of our products for longevity, environmental effect, and comfort. When current solutions fail to match our extraordinarily high standards, we innovate and create our own.
Goal of Zero Waste to Landfill
All Sunbrella facilities are focused on minimizing waste and recycling as many materials as possible with over 90% of manufacturing waste diverted from landfills.

Glen Raven owns and operates solar arrays at their manufacturing plants in Anderson, South Carolina and in Norlina, North Carolina, collectively generating 1.5 megawatts of energy.
Recycle My Sunbrella
The Recycle My Sunbrella program allows consumers to participate in our corporate recycling process, delivering acrylic manufacturing waste to partners who convert the materials into industrial products such as felt, automotive insulation, and filtration. To date, we have diverted over one million pounds of fabric from landfills.
