Sunbrella fabrics are made exclusively by Glen Raven, Inc., a family business headquartered in North Carolina, and has been run by the same family since its creation as a cotton mill in 1880.
Glen Raven’s fabrics have endured the test of time and proven to be some of the highest-quality products available today. In addition to awning fabrics, which the company began making in 1908, Glen Raven began manufacturing parachute fabrics for dropping heavy military equipment during World War II, something it still does today.*
Glen Raven is also credited with inventing pantyhose in 1959, and the company wove the fabric used to make the first American flag that was placed on the moon.**
Finding high-quality products manufactured in the USA with craftsmanship you can trust is important to many Americans. If you find yourself among those many, you can find years of enjoyment with your awning, manufactured right here in the USA.
