Dried Crumbled Latex Foam

Over time, Latex foam dries, crumbles and turns to dust. We have replaced these disasters many many times over the years. The dust is very fine, so work with a mask and vacuum the covers thoroughly before replacing the foam.

Water Draining through Drifast Foam

For seat cushions that are going to be left outside we use Drifast Foam. The foam has large open cels and rigid cel walls which make for a cushion that is both firm and won't retain water. Indoor foam has much smaller cells and absorbs water like a sponge. Once the water inside the foam, it can't be wrung out.

The Goat

Our side doors are frequently hit with graffiti, always an unimaginative tag and we never waste any time before covering it up with black paint. Recently a paper portrait of a goat was glued to a door and we liked it so much that we left it until the heat caused the glue to turn brittle, the paper started to peel and finally someone carried it away.

Pedal Power

Usually our customers use a car to drop off and pick up orders. However, with the right size bag, this one a prototype made by Timbuk2, pedaling your back cushion over Nob Hill is a cinch!
