Premium SD fabric is a solution-dyed fabric.
Solution-dyed fabrics have had colour mixed into the raw materials when the thread is being manufactured early in the process (so the entire thread is dyed) and therefore they hold their colour longer. In constrast, traditional dyeing only has colour added after production which only dyes the outer layer and is therefore more likely to fade faster from sunlight. Traditional dyeing also uses large amounts of water and chemicals.

- Is a woven polyester
