Luxurious Kid-Friendly Microsuede
We use high quality, buttery soft, double layer microsuede that is water resistant.It is the perfect combination of comfort, style and practicality. It is stain resistant, easy to clean, machine washable and pet friendly.
Our microsuede cover has a secondary layer or backing that makes it water resistant and helps protect from spills. However, it is not waterproof. If a large amount of liquid makes contact with the fabric or if a liquid is left sitting on the fabric, it will seep through.
Black water-resistant fabric backing.
Having messy kids ourselves, it was super important to have a kid friendly fabric - hello, sticky fingers and spills. We tested the water resistance ourselves and a showcase a video of the test in our Facebook group: Cozy Fort Community.
The foam itself is still covered with a protective cloth inner liner, to protect the foam from biting and tearing when the outer cover is removed.
Our microsuede covers are machine washable. Wash it cold on its own and hang dry to prevent shrinking. For small messes, a damp cloth works great for spot cleaning or you can use an upholstery cleaner for tougher stains.
Rest assured that all our foam is of the highest quality. It is performance and durability tested by independent, accredited testing laboratories and is certified by CertiPUR-US® and is listed on the official CertiPUR-US® website. This means our foam is:
✓ Made without ozone depleters
✓ Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (”Tris”) flame retardants
✓ Made without mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
✓ Made without formaldehyde
✓ Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission;
✓ Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)
Although our couches are low VOC, they may have a slight odour from being packaged in sealed plastic during shipping. The smell will dissipate in a few days to a week, or you can wash the covers to remove the odor sooner.
Our foam has guaranteed 100% rebound after unpackaging, because we only compress the cushions minimally for shipping, to ensure the foam does not get damaged. Complete foam compression can damage the foam to the point that it may only rebound to 80 or 90 % of its original size, possibly causing the fabric to become loose. Full compression also may damage the shape of the foam if the corners do not rebound completely. Because of this our boxes are almost twice the size of our competition, to ensure 100% rebound. This increases shipping costs significantly, both from the manufacturer and to the customer, but we feel it is worth it.
Foam ILD and Density
ILD, or Indentation Load Deflection, is a measure of how much force (weight) it takes to compress foam by 25%. Different foams have different ILD's, depending on how soft or firm of a foam is desired.
Density refers to the mass of a material per unit volume, such as kgs per cubic metre (we convert the density to pounds/cubic foot). In general, a high density foam lasts longer than a lower density foam.
After testing a variety of firmnesses and densities, we decided to use a foam with an ILD of 45 lbs and a density of 1.9 lbs / ft3 for all pieces of the set. We find this to be the perfect combination of comfort for lounging and sturdiness for builds.
