High Quality Performance Fabrics

Performance fabrics set the industry standard for durability. These materials separate themselves from traditional fabrics because they’re water repellent, easier to clean and less likely to stain. Bella Duraoffers performance fabrics that exceed expectations on every level.

Bella Dura fabrics are high-performance materials that resist pilling, staining or fading, making them ideal for nearly any design application.

Bella Dura Proprietary Technology

We proudly weave our Bella Dura high performance fabric in the U.S. with a proprietary 100% polyolefin fiber, the only fiber on the market that begins its life as a by-product and ends as a completely recyclable material. This material is highly sustainable as it requires less energy, minimal water, and doesn’t produce harmful industrial waste.

At the end of their life cycle, these fabrics and yarns are sent back to Bella Dura and inserted into a recycle stream where they’re converted into reusable materials used in various industries and applications.
