Who’d have thought it?
I was amazed at some of the facts and figures:
1. They spin enough yarn each year to get to the moon and back 173 times, weaving 18 million square metres of fabric per year
2. The Italians lead the way in this type of fabric production
3. Our awning fabric comes from the same mills as the fabric used in Ikea products
4. They use nanotechnology
5. Fabric has a memory, and different materials have different grade memories

I will never look at awning covers in quite the same way ever again!
