In addition to being expressive and ecological, aluminium is also a unique metal in terms of technical qualities. Three times lighter than steel, it offers stability over time, resistance to the weathering and easy maintenance. Moreover, it is recyclable and can be reused an infinite number of times without the slightest alteration of its technical and mechanical properties. The aluminium of the collection has been processed using a specific anti-saline pretreatment, which inhibits the natural oxidation process. The subsequent powder-coating process increases resistance to corrosion while also protecting the metal against scratches and chipping.

Teak (Tectona grandis) is one of the most precious tropical woods, having exceptional characteristics of hardness, ductility and resistance to the weathering, moisture and salt. Its uniqueness comes from an oily resin which naturally improves its impermeability and resistance, even to insects and parasites. The natural teak used in our furniture originates from natural forests in Mexico.

Tzalam wood is a particularly hardy species from the forests of Mexico and is naturally protected against water and humidity. Unlike teak, Tzalam does not lose its color as teak does. A very important thing about the Tzalam tree is that during its growth process, it sheds seeds which grow into more trees. For this reason, Tzalam is considered a sustainable wood. It has remarkable mechanical properties, such as its special resistance to bending. The Tzalam used in our furniture is a kiln-dried solid wood, which not only increases its compactness, but also enhances its grain or color shades.

Parota wood is commonly known as Guanacaste and scientifically known as Enterolobium Cyclocarpum. The parota tree grows primarily in Mexico and Central America and is commonly used in wooden furniture design and projects for its large dimensions, neutral golden-brown coloring, distinct grain patterns and affordable cost.
In particular, Parota wood is used to create unique furniture pieces. The heartwood is streaked with honey, reddish and dark brown colors alongside clearly distinct, creamy sapwood
Parota is particularly desired for its bold, striking wood grain, which resembles Acacia wood in appearance but with more texture and consistent color. It also has a natural luster, which is naturally highlighted with oils. This allows to protect the wood and bring out its intricate grains in a much less damaging way than glossy varnishes.
Parota is a fast-growing tree that can reach enormous heights and widths in an incredibly short time. This makes the Guanacaste tree the ideal role model for sustainable and environmentally responsible wood furniture.

The ancient weaving tradition becomes a must for outdoor furniture using latest generation synthetic fibres, designed to perfectly resist against water and light, maintaining technical qualities and colour features unaltered over time. The polyethylene fibre used for the collection is a high-quality synthetic material developed for outdoor use, non-toxic and ecological. Tenacious and resistant to wear and the weathering, its colour and beauty remains unaltered over time
The weave used in our collections is purely hand-made using a technical rope in polyester. Polyester rope is today the most commonly used type of rope in the nautical sector thanks to its excellent resistance to water and direct sunlight. Despite being flexible and easy to weave, this material is very resilient to deformation and maintains its resistance to repeated stress even when wet. The fact that it doesn’t absorb water also means the rope dries very quickly.

The quality of the fiber used to make a fabric is crucial in terms of fading resistance. Outdura fabrics are made from 100% solution-dyed branded acrylic. This means that the color pigments go all the way into the fiber, not just on the surface of the fiber. This gives the fabrics a superior color fastness and makes the colors shine for a longer period of time. Outdura fabrics resist fading and remain colorfast after sun and weather exposure exceding 1,500 testing hours.
Sauleda Textiles uses 100% solution-dyed fibres. Fabrics made to withstand the harshest outdoor conditions, with multiple qualities and treatments to face the most demanding environments, guaranteeing an excellent performance.
The Sauleda Fabric Protector coating on our fabrics creates a barrier effect, strengthening water-repellency, making it permeable to air and retarding the adherence of dirt. The fibers used to weave the fabric have been subjected to a special antibacterial treatment. Bleach can be used in moderate quantities.
Sauleda fabrics offer solar protection of 90% in most designs, and extreme resistance to UV rays.
During the fabric manufacturing process, a final treatment is applied to guarantee excellent dimensional stability and the fabric is exposed to an extra tension load to guarantee its dimensional stability.
The special properties of the fibres in our yarns make the fabric dry quickly. It is always important to let the fabric dry completely before storing it or rolling it up.
All TEXSILK colors are Solution dyed. This is the best way to pigment outdoor fabrics and offers the highest Color fastness because the pigments are introduced into the yarns during its production (extrusion method). TEXSILK is made of a hydrophobic material that will not absorb humidity. Therefore stains and dirt can remain in the gaps between the yarns but will never penetrate them, this is why stains and dirt can be removed so easely.
TEXSILK is resistant to virtually every chemical used for cleaning. Even 100% bleach is not affecting the fabric or its colors. Therefore when you have difficult stains to remove do not hesitate to use bleach or other cleaning chemicals.
