Canvas

Acrylic canvas is the best fabric for outdoor use. It has no natural fibres for mildew to attack. It is dope-dyed (when it is spun into yarn, and then the coloured yarn woven) so it is colour-fast for life. The heavy duty marine grade canvas is what outdoor awnings are made of, also the soft top canopy on boats, boom covers on yachts, and Made in the Shade umbrellas. It’s the best outdoor fabric available and will last at least 5 years in harsh conditions. This cloth is suitable for all climates and does not require periodic waterproofing.


Timber

We exclusively use sustainably-sourced Vic Ash hardwoods, which are stained and constructed by hand at our factory. We use metal fittings and fixtures to ensure the greatest longevity and strength throughout the frame.

Models

When Made in the Shade first began, imperial measurements were still commonly used in Australia. The sizes numbers relate directly to the diameters as measured in feet. If you’re unsure which umbrella is right for you, please feel free to call or email and we will be happy to assist.

Size 10

This is our largest square shape umbrella, and is ideal for unrestricted spaces and where several umbrellas are to be used together to create a long area of shade, like on a large verandah or deck. This size is unsuitable for use in a table as the arms will not close down over table height. It can be used beside a table, but will need to be moved away to either open or close the umbrella. We recommend this umbrella for events and outdoor areas where the umbrella does not need to be closed.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
