I’ll be the first to admit that fashion trends don’t often catch my attention. Like many of you, my job, family, friends, and household take up much of my time. But little-by-little I’ve been noticing something in my periphery. I think it started gradually. Now it seems like it’s everywhere. What is it? Gold.
When did gold fabrics come back into style?
I’m a child of the 70’s so I’ve seen gold work its magic before. Glittery lamé and faux gold finishes shone through the disco era, and eventually faded away, until now.
Sunbrella, one of our most popular outdoor woven fabrics, has brought in some really incredible golds. In fact, if you ask for the Gold Colour Family on their shade site, there are at least 20 different colours that come up, more if you add in upholstery fabrics. Here are some samples:
Sunbrella Granville Toinsel 4826
Sunbrella Era Cornsilk 4762
Sunbrella Alloy Bronze 4401
Sunbrella Granville Mahogany 4828
Amazing, right? But it’s not just the woven fabrics that are in on it. The vinyls and shade screens are joining the glossy parade with some golds of their own. Take a peek at the images below and I think you’ll agree, gold is back, and it’s lookin’ good!

Here’s the Ferrari Gold in action!
Well, to be fair, we can’t always fix it.
Sometimes we need to replace your sad & broken awning. Your holey tent. Your punctured canopy.
You get the idea.
And here’s the best part – we can collaborate with you and your insurance company!
So yes, we know storms can be a pain.
We know the last thing you wanted to today was to cry over the dings and tears in your state-of-the-art patio awning that covers your 10 person, LED bedazzled, house-music pumpin’ hot tub.
We know that you’re worried your customers will never find you because your lovely canopy is tattered and torn, completely obscuring that logo you dreamt up while trekking with Yeti in Nepal.
And we know that you can’t allow that beautiful, young, and stylish couple, with 500 of their closest friends and family, most of whom have travelled hundreds or thousands of kilometers to be there, to say their vows under a ripped and sorry looking wedding tent.
No. Instead you’re going to call your insurance company. And then you’re going to call the experts.
