SIS Covers was established in 1987 and has become one of the leading cover manufacturers in the futon industry. In the beginning, twenty-something sisters, Shari Hammer and Cyndi Ritger, wanted to spend time with their young kids and make a living. One day the young women were out shopping and spotted a mattress (what is now called a futon mattress). No frame. Just a mattress. A new piece of furniture! Discovering there were only black and white covers available, Shari and Cyndi figured this mattress needed some style and color. Suddenly, a perfect opportunity for two smart, stylish, artistic and energetic young women. From the very start, SIS was committed to producing the best quality product while offering the largest selection of futon covers. Today, SIS's space has grown from 800 square feet to 76,000 square feet and from stocking 150 yards of fabric to 500,000 yards of fabric. SIS Enterprises' history of hard work, good decisions and artistic flair has helped it grow into a key component of the still-burgeoning international futon industry. With a selection of fabrics exceeding 300 styles, an SIS cover can adapt to or change a room instantly. Choose a traditional or a contemporary style cover and anywhere from floral, southwest, to even animal prints! SIS updates their fabric line twice a year, following the latest styles and trends in the industry. Although SIS covers serve a room well aesthetically, function should not be overlooked. An SIS futon cover will protect your futon mattress from everyday use as well as spills and stains. They can be easily removed and either machine washed or dry-cleaned, depending on the material. For a small investment in an SIS cover, you can prolong the life of your mattress and save hundreds of dollars by not needing to replace it.
