The Difference is the thread!
GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread maintains its strength even after regular exposure to UV sunlight. UV resistance is built into the thread, and is not a coating or additive that can wear off. Unaffected by Sunlight. Using GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread tells customers that they are buying a premium product built to last with durable seams and a brand that’s backed by more than 25 years of experience from the company that invented it. GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread will outlast the fabric into which it is sewn. Gore guarantees it!*
Please note that we do not make replacement slings with horizontal sling rails. (See photo). This type of furniture usually has a separate top and bottom sling. The top sling will have horizontal sling rails and the bottom sling is usually tapered at the front of the chair.
