All Messy Marvin products are constructed out of their custom WIPEABLE and RINSEABLE fabrics. The fabrics look similar to a wide weave linen, but are made of 100% lead free Polyester with a Water and Stain Repellant Coating. Their fabrics DO NOT NEED TO BE LAUNDERED. The fabric also has a lead free PVC backing, ensuring that nothing gets through the surface to your furniture. All products are meant to PROTECT, yet look nice. Truly the meeting of the minds of design and kids and pets!
