Who are We?
For more than 30 years, our family has been providing customers with their own Sunbrella fabric for their personal do-it-yourself (DIY) projects.
Our story begins with our first store, Awning Works Inc., out of Clearwater, Florida. It specializes in the manufacture and installation of many types of sun control and storm protection products. Throughout the years, we have had so many requests from customers requesting to buy their own Sunbrella fabric that we created this website where people can go to do just that. We launched Outdoor Fabric Central in 2003 for the DIY enthusiast and, in the process, have helped people design and create some really neat things.
As our businesses grew, so did the services and products that we offered. We now operate three niche outdoor fabric sites as well as an interior fabric site, FabricCopia, which launched in late 2011. Our latest endeavor is the launch of our sister store, Patio Lane, which features not only outdoor fabrics, but also interior décor fabrics as well as outdoor living products such as outdoor furniture. Patio Lane also features our unique cushion service, where we customize any piece of furniture with your choice of fabric for a personal, one-of-a-kind look.
