sunvas | the traditional

In further tradition of technological innovation, markilux now offers sunvas snc (swela nano clean) fabric. sunvas is a 100% polyester based yarn that creates a soft textured feel. The colours diffuse the light beautifully giving a pleasant luminescence to your shaded area. Sunvas benefits from the modern benefits of the nano clean effect of sunsilk snc whilst maintaining a textured traditional look.
Sunvas will protect you from the harsh Australian sun thanks to a UPF 50+ whilst maintaining its colour and strength with high weather and colorfastness protection. This low maintenance textile is available in a wide range of designs from block stripes, textured patterns and the usual plains.
