In the end of the season 2011, we spotted some small mold spots in the back fabric of the mattresses. The season 2011 was especially tough for the mattresses, since we started the season early, had some long periods of wet and rainy weather, and did not pay enough attention to lifting the mattresses up each day. The mattresses are probably over twenty years old and especially the ones in the saloon start to be also a bit worn out.
Our old light blue fabric is corduroy-type
For the new mattresses, we are planning to have a lighter colour for the fabric but we have not yet decided (at least not 100 % surely) which one we shall choose. Here are some samples of the fabrics we are trying to decide between. The first three samples from the right (on the first photo) are of alcantara-type fabric and the fourth is synthetic leather.
The lighter colour is close to the colour of the curtains, so maybe that one?
Here are some inspirational photos for us:
