The Technical Testing of Yarns and Textile Fabrics:With Reference to Official Specifications J Herzfeld
What if Picasso had been a chair maker and Stravinsky a designer of tables? What would have been the impact of such intense creative talent on twentieth-century furniture? Today there is a man with this quality of profound artistic vision and talent who has devoted his life to making furniture. His name is Sam Maloof, and this book is his life and work told in his own words. Sam Maloof started making furniture immediately after World War II, when there was very little demand for hand-made objects. His perseverance through ´years of difficulty is a testament to the depth of his love for wood and for working with it. Since childhood, Sam has also been in love with technique and has constantly developed his precise sense of form and design. These three loves-of wood, of making things, and of designbrought him to the world of furniture and eventually to an honored place among America´s leading artistcraftsmen. As with true great art, everything Sam Maloof makes seems simple. His furniture has a clear rhythm and flow, a bright vitality that eludes analysis. All his furniture is functional: chairs are comfortable; tables, while sculptural, are still tables to be used; desks are custom-designed to meet the needs of each user. Though Maloof furniture designs are all intensely his own, they remain unassuming and natural. His work has the calm, sure quality that comes from technical mastery combined with a creative joy in finding ways to let wood speak. A first encounter with a piece of Maloof furniture is like meeting a friend from the past-the warmth of relationship is immediate and delightful. This warmth never pales. The qualities of his work are mirrored in the artist. Sam is open, direct, and gracious. He projects a feeling of affable dignity and goodwill, and he works with the ease and clarity seen in his furniture. Work for him is not drudgery. It is a renewal, an affirmation. He and his wife, Alfreda, live in a meandering house that nestles in a lemon orchard at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains, near San Bernardino, California. Sam has been building and expanding the house for thirty years. It unfolds as a series of surprises, from Sam´s workshop at one end to the new guestroom at the other. Every room contains the ceramics, woodwork, textiles, baskets, Pictures, and other beautiful things that nourish the Maloofs and give them pleasure. Sam Maloof´s technical mastery of woodworking is coupled with mature, strongly personal artistic expression. He has set a standard for his craft in North America and the world. Future generations of craftsmen will see him as one of the major artistic lights of this century.

Funny bomber jacket made of functional materialDetachable hood with synthetic fur (We only use animal-friendly vegan fur. The fur trimming are detachable for easy cleaning.) The sparkling frontal 2-way zip is a real eye-catcher. Outer jacket and lining made of technical fabric. The jacket has sealable outer pockets, and it also has a sealable inner pocket for your mobile phone. On the front, there is a continuous sparkling 2-way zip with wind protection. Even when we are not doing any sports at all, our body is generating heat, and we begin to sweat. A healthy adult produces 200 to 700 ml of sweat on average on a daily basis. It goes without saying that this is higher when you engage in physical exercise or during the summer. In order to keep our body temperature at a comfortable level and to keep sweat levels on the skin as low as possible, a jacket must have good ventilating properties as well as breathability. The material of the Funny Facts bomber jacket can absorb up to 1000 g of steam within 24 hours per square metre, and it has the ability to transfer this to the outside. An ISO standard says that water-tight textiles must have a water column of at least 1,300 mm. In a lab, a tube is placed on a sample of the fabric to be examined, and after this, the tube is filled with water. This process checks which water level penetrates the fabric. This means that, if the water only penetrates the fabric at more than 1,300 mm, the material is deemed water-tight. The Funny Facts bomber jacket only lets water through from 3,000 mm.
