Summer is the inspiration behind the new fabric awning collection from Markilux Australia .

Specialising in external sun shading systems for over 30 years, Markilux is a world leader in awning systems and textiles.

A warm lazy summer’s day in the garden, the laughter of children, the scent of fresh flowers and homemade cakes, precious hours spent with the family, shady garden spots and cups of tea… Markilux’s new Summer Shadows and Magical Pastels Tea Time fabric awning collection has been inspired by all things ‘summer’.

The seven soft colour themes and 20 different designs of the Tea Time fabric awnings collection reflect the current trend towards softer pastel colours and bolder fun prints, even exuding a nostalgic touch of cottage charm.

Highlights of the fabric awnings collection include ‘On Cloud Nine’ featuring charcoal and grey stripes mixed with splashes of lime, aqua and baby pink, ‘Butterfly Time’, a pretty mix of thin striped patterns in soft tones of purple and green and ‘Cherry Picking’ in bold striped hues of burnt orange, sunny yellow and dark red.

In addition to the aesthetic value of the fabric awnings, the new Tea Time collection also delivers several functional benefits including durability, weather resistance and simple maintenance.

The new Tea Time fabric awnings collection is made from Markilux’s new Sunvas SNC material, a high quality and hardwearing polyester fabric featuring a special dirt repellent and weather resistant coating that has high sun protection qualities and is also easy to clean. The awning fabric has a soft, textile feel that provides a soothing, less vibrant colour palette when sitting underneath the awning.
