An ancient fabric that dates back to the 13th century. Pure cotton fabric is economical and can be dyed. However, this material is not waterproof, so you may experience problems with mold and mildew. Waterproofing is required once a year. If you do waterproof them, you will usually use a substance containing chlorine, which is not safe for your body.
Also known as PVC. When vinyl cushion fabric stays out in the sun it will get hot, so when you sit down it may burn your butt. Plus, PVC is also a non-recyclable material. To protect the environment, it should be used as little as possible.

Do You Need To Purchase Pillow Inserts At The Same Time
When You Order Outdoor Cushion Covers?
As we all know, pillow inserts are quite big, so the shipping costs will be more higher. If you want to sell as a set, we recommend you to order them for separately. Pillowcases and inserts are packaged separately. The pillow inserts should be vacuum-packed, so the transportation will be much cheaper.
1. Polyester filler: Polyester filler is a cheap, soft, fluffy material, but the support it gives is not very good. Over time, they will become flat, so although they will look ok, when it comes to actually use them they are not ideal.
2.Poly cluster filler - essentially the same as above, except that the filler is wrapped in small bundles or made into tiny balls. It makes these cushions a little more solid, but they still tend to flatten out after a while.
3. Foam – there are many different densities of foam, so when you see foam cushions, it's hard to determine if they will give enough support. Foam is graded according to density. The higher the density, the higher the strength is, although the better the density, the lower the thermal conductivity will be. However, it is recommended to pick foam with high density, as although the thermal conductivity will be low, it won’t be too much lower.
4. Polyester – Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a kind of thermoplastic synthetic polymer resin, which was initially used in the manufacture of luxury beds. It is a fiber-filled technology and provides optimal support. Polyester cushions are very strong and the reason they are recommended is that they don’t go flat like other cushion fillers; polyester gives the cushion a tight and good look.
Does The Cushion Need A Zipper?
How To Choose A Zipper?
If the cushion is filled directly with a filler and there is no zipper, then customer can only use the pillow insert provided by the manufacturer and cannot change it to what customer want. If customer have their own ideas, it is recommended to buy a cushion with a zipper. If so, should we choose an invisible zipper or an ordinary zipper. The invisible zipper looks to make the cushion more integrated, and the color of the ordinary zipper can make the cushion more beautiful.
How to pack and transport cushions?
Each cover and cushion should be packed independently in a breathable plastic bag; be careful not to wrap it up too tightly. If it’s wrapped too tightly, you may permanently change its shape. Use a 5-layer corrugated carton for the outer box and put bubble wrap on the top to avoid the box getting squashed, which may result in the eventual deformation of the cushion.
