When we – me and my partner, Victor Pleshev, the architect who designed the Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover for his mother when she needed help with her ironing when recovering from a stroke, realised our gift to his mother was now an accidental business, we wondered how we were going to sell it to the public.
In large quantities.
Dipping our toe in the water of retail at rural field days. Agricultural shows. Smaller home shows. We were always asked this question: how long will it last?
At most of these events, the Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover was the most expensive ironing board cover.
By at least three times more!
To be truthful . . .
. . .We had no idea. . .
How long it would last.
We decided we would do what no one had done before with an ironing board cover.
Guarantee it against wear and tear. For 12 months.
At the time, there wasn’t even a guarantee on workmanship for covers.
Why would we take such a gamble?
Because we knew that all the accessories we chose for the cover were the very best. And all were purchased to last.
And if it couldn’t last for 12 months.
Why make it?
Why buy it?
We’ve come a long way since 1994. And that guarantee is still in place.
Some years we replace no covers.
Some years we replace less than a handful. But those replacements cement our relationship with our customer.
We’ve gone from ZERO customers. To more than 350,000. In 29 countries.
The superior quality of the Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover speaks for itself!
