Unbeatable seating for a small space

Unbeatable seating for a small space

We can’t say enough about the wonderful versatility the Moroccan Pouf adds to any home decor as a splash of color or to provide additional occasional seating.  In our home the kids use them to saddle up to the coffee table and for mom it has become a favorite foot rest. What impressed us most was how easily they fit into almost any room. An extra bonus was the stuffing Direct Current uses to fill the imported leather case allows us to redirect waste generated in our fashion production away from land fills as the fashion fabric off cuts make a perfect foundation for the stuffing.

We never much liked disposable clothing.

So when we set out to develop the all-weather Dallas-James Adventure wear for kids we started out by following two rules:

A)  the suits should offer a functional fit and finish that ensures the kids use them and  B)  the product should be durable.

The result is the growing list of comments we get from satisfied Mom’s and grandparents like this example:

“I ordered a pant and jacket set a couple of years ago and my older son has now grown out of it (his younger brother can now enjoy using it). 

I need to order a larger size for the big brother and am wondering if you have any sizes bigger than size 6. I am confident that a 6 would fit but would like it a bit bigger so that we can get another couple of years wear out of it.

You make them so well that they last through some tough wearing ;-).  I am really happy with my last purchase and would like to put another order in soon so please get back to me at your earliest convenience.”

Cheers,

Jeneen R.
(a very happy customer)

Well an email like this proves the point that quality pays its way to future business and that in this day and age we are pleased to see our product get a second life in keeping with the three “R’s” that have us reduce , recycle and re-use.  Thank you, Jeneen.

And as it goes, we are making larger sizes now for kids over 7 as they start heading to the sidelines and other outdoor activities that inspire us to continue the development of our Dallas-James brand “Adventure wear for Kids”.
