sunsilk | the brilliant

Sunsilk snc (swela nano clean) is a milestone in external textile development. Taking inspiration from the properties of the lotus plant, markilux developed a finish that mimics its nano clean effect. This silky high-tech 100% polyester based fabric repels dirt and water, is permeable to air along with being weather and rot proof.
Sunsilk will retain its long lasting radiant colour for many years thanks to its very high light fastness. This low maintenance textile also blocks at least 97% of UV radiation and is available in a diverse palette of colours and patterns that suit any style or taste.
