Outdoor Biobased Xorel allows designers to extend the beauty and performance of the Xorel brand outdoors, with an industry-redefining innovation that outperforms all existing outdoor textiles on the market.

Naturally Extraordinary

Biobased Xorel is made with a whopping 85% biobased content derived from the rapidly renewable sugarcane plant—generating a significantly reduced carbon footprint over fossil-fuel based products and even most biobased materials on the market. Xorel Biobased Outdoor extends 40 years of the Xorel brand promise beyond the four walls.

Tons of Carbon Capture

For every 1 ton of raw material produced, sugarcane production captures and sequesters 2.5 tons of carbon, making it a carbon-positive product.

Biobased Content

While textiles can be labeled “biobased” for containing just 25% of organic material, Outdoor Biobased Xorel yarn contains 85%, exceeding the minimum by over 60%.

PVC + Finish Free

Xorel is always 100% PVC-free; free of chlorine, plasticizers, heavy metals and toxic dyes, requiring no added finishes, coatings, or chemistry to perform.

First and only Indoor / Outdoor textile to achieve Cradle to Cradle Gold certification and Living Product Challenge certification.

Free of chlorine, plasticizers, heavy metals, toxic dyes and ozone-depleting chemicals
