The fabric gives excellent protection against the sun’s UV rays as it has a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating of 50+, which means it blocks 98% of the ultraviolet radiation.
The dope-dyeing process reduces consumption of water and dyestuff while improving colour fastness compared to traditional dyeing techniques.
With a light, passing rain shower, you can stay and relax under the parasol since the canopy repels water.
The strap with buckle keeps the fabric in place when folded.
Good to know
The parasol canopy can also be used as an extra canopy for KUGGÖ/LINDÖJA and BETSÖ/LINDÖJA parasol and OXNÖ/LINDÖJA hanging parasol.
Long Term Benefits
Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
