If you love the warm elegance of woven fiber, the Abondo Collection from Royal Botania will be the perfect choice for you. By mixing straight lines and smooth curves, Abondo is aesthetically pleasing. Around its light-weight aluminum core wraps Nenuphar fiber, a unique synthetic fiber feeling just like a natural one. The collection comprises an armchair, relax chair, bench and several module options. Please note the optional cushions available for seating as well as tables which will nicely transform the latter ones into ottomans. By choosing Abondo you will make sure that your backyard, patio or pool area will stand out.
Royal Botania's cushions are made of quick-dry foam and therefore, have an anti-skid feature with small holes on the bottom, which allows the cushions to breath and water to drain. The cushion fabric is woven from Tempotest, a 100% solution-dyed acrylic fiber, ensuring optimal water and UV resistance besides premium comfort. The prices below include Tempotest grade A fabric (14 colors). There are many more colors available in grade B fabric, including five colors in laminated fabrics (upcharge applies). Please contact us for assistance if you can't find the color you are looking for.
Aluminum or powder-coated aluminum is perfect for outdoor use due to its light weight and being highly weather resistant.
Caring for Aluminum. It is easy to care for: just use mild soap and water (no metal scrubbers please) to clean the surface. To repair minor scratches caused by handling, use touch-up pens in corresponding color.
Nenuphar Fiber. This fiber is made entirely from high density polyethylene (HDPE). This means it is extremely durable and resistant to all weather conditions, including strong sunlight, rain and temperatures ranging from +80 C all the way down to 70 C, making it suitable for exposure to the outdoor elements all year round, anywhere in the world. As well as being mold-resistant, it is also non-toxic and 100% recyclable.
Caring for Wicker. You can vacuum any of our synthetic or natural wicker furniture with a brush attachment to remove organic debris and dust. If needed, clean furniture using a soft sponge and mild soap and water.
Tempotest. Royal Botania uses Tempotest, a 100% solution-dyed acrylic fiber, for their cushion fabric. Tempotest guarantees optimal water and UV resistance.
Caring for Cushions/ Fabric.The cushions for all of our outdoor furniture lines are made with weatherproof acrylic fabrics. These fabrics do not support the growth of mildew; however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. How often you will need to clean your cushions depends upon your local environment: cleaning is required less frequently in a dry environment than in a humid one around heavy foliage.
For routine cleaning and maintenance: hose off cushions with clean water on a monthly basis during the summer season. This will help to prevent dirt from becoming deeply imbedded in the fabric and will eliminate the need for more vigorous cleaning later. Cushions also can be vacuumed regularly to remove unseen organic debris that causes mildew to form.
In most environments a thorough cleaning will be needed once a year, prior to the summer season:
- leave cushion covers on the cushions.
- wash using a mild, natural soap (not a detergent) and rinse using cold water.
- allow cushions to air dry (never apply heat to the fabric, and do not put cushions into a tumble dryer).
