Frequently Asked Questions


3Beaches is an Australian textile company. ABN, 83 6088 435 72.

We are an alliance of interior and textile designers who produce a luxurious  range of Sunbrella solution dyed acrylic fabrics. All of our Australian designs come with a 5 year Sunbrella warranty. We are proud to collaborate with Sunbrella as their brand is synonymous with quality and they are the international market leader in manufacturing outdoor fabrics.

Why buy 3Beaches' fabric?

Our gorgeous Australian designs coupled with the softness and quality of our fabrics give 3Beaches’ textiles an interesting edge over other performance fabrics on the market. Our water and UV resistant woven fabrics look amazing as upholstery and are suitable for indoor and outdoor use in both residential and commercial applications. As our fabrics are woven, several of our designs work well in reverse too.

What is the composition of 3Beaches' fabric?

Our fabrics are woven from 100% Sunbrella solution-dyed acrylic fibres. This means the fabric is extremely durable and innately resistant to fading.

The benefit of solution-dyed acrylic is that it is strong and UV resistant while still retaining the softness of a regular fabric. However, it is important to note that solution-dyed acrylic is water resistant but not waterproof.

No. We sell to wholesale and trade customers only. If you are a retail client, please see our distributor’s page.
