Our take on polyester
Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions.
The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products.
In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.
The fabric gives excellent protection against the sun’s UV rays as it has a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating of 50+, which means it blocks 98% of the ultraviolet radiation.
With BETSÖ parasol frame you get a maintenance-free wooden look since the pole is made of naturally rust-free aluminum with a wooden print.
Easily open or close the parasol by using the pulley. Pull the rope down to open the parasol. Secure with the locking pin in the pole’s hole. Remove the pin and release the rope slowly to close it.
You are protected from the sunshine all day long, since the parasol can be tilted.
The dope-dyeing process reduces consumption of water and dyestuff while improving colour fastness compared to traditional dyeing techniques.
The strap with buckle keeps the fabric in place when folded.
With a light, passing rain shower, you can stay and relax under the parasol since the canopy repels water.

May be completed with TOSTERÖ parasol cover (160 cm).
Fits into HUVÖN (56 cm) or GRYTÖ parasol base.
Always fold the parasol when not in use and never use it when it is windy.
The rope should always be wrapped and fixed around the pole with the included hook-and-loop strap.
The parasol base must be completely filled with sand.
Approximately 25 litres of sand is needed (approx. 35 kg).
The parasol does not provide protection against reflected or scattered solar ultraviolet radiation.
