i went and ask them on their facebook page and they said it was like a "polyester canvas"    so you can look up dyeing that stuff, 

you mike come over to the arts and crafts area here and ask folks if they know any tricks

thank you, dam it, had to be polyester! I looked up a dyeing place and they said they dye everything but polyester lol, looks like mine may be staying faded unless I get the money to replace to covers! thank you for asking and finding out for me :)

Now i'm not sure if want to go this route , but there is some fabric paints, some even spray on really nice.   

and since they said "LIKE polyester" i would see if there is a place where you can do a test spot?
