According to researchers massive fabrics similar to the shade sails of today are widely used by the inhabitants of the Egyptian time. In the past the Egyptian inhabitants used huge sheets of cloth as sunbeam shelters. Later, they were followed by the citizens from Rome as well as Greece. Rome’s Coliseums were built with large sails of canvas.

Its sail cloth of early times was generally more robust and heavy, yet it was exceptionally effective in bringing to shade the scorching sunlight. However, in recent past shade sails have been created to play the same role as the sailcloth from the Egyptian times performed. However, this type of fabric is more flexible and provides the highest level of protection from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun.
