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.
The dope-dyeing process reduces consumption of water and dyestuff while improving colour fastness compared to traditional dyeing techniques.
With a light, passing rain shower, you can stay and relax under the parasol since the canopy repels water.
The strap with buckle keeps the fabric in place when folded.
Please refer to packaging label for country of origin
The parasol canopy can also be used as an extra canopy for KUGGÖ/LINDÖJA and BETSÖ/LINDÖJA parasol and OXNÖ/LINDÖJA hanging parasol.
