Weathertech becomes Purishade®
The new name expresses the renewed sustainable vocation of our best waterproof fabric for sail shades!
For this reason we decided to choose a name that expressed its "green" vocation and to call it Purishade®.
How was the Weathertech fabric born and what was its evolution?
In 2020, after 3 years of research, Weathertech was born, the revolutionary waterproof fabric for shading sails developed exclusively by Maanta.
During 2021 we have further improved our proven fabric.

- Respect for the environment (polypropylene fibers, with an extremely favorable HIGG sustainability index)
- Mechanical properties (very high resistance to abrasion, tensile strength and stress)
- Correct mix between waterproofness and breathability
- Color persistence, mold resistance
