Tired of having to get up from your comfy bed to get a forgotten item? Have you ever thought the answer to this problem may be in a different type of linen? FunctionAll™ Linens makes it easy to store, organize, and easily reach your favorite personal items. The practical features on the sheets are not only great for homebodies after a busy day of work, but also can reduce frustration of patients wanting to access personal necessities without asking for help each time.
Native Texan, owner, and inventor of ErgoPocket™ sheet, Teresa Joyce explains the main difference between FunctionAll™ Linens and other bed sheets, “ours have a double duty patented side pocket design that enables the user to have a place for things like remotes and other technology. The pockets can substitute for a night stand or bulky caddies.”
“It was in the pursuit of one of my most basic pleasures-lounging in bed-that spurred me to invent the ErgoPocket™ sheet,” tells Joyce. After dozing off in bed with her glasses and soon after finding them mangled, Teresa Joyce went on the journey of researching and developing her patent. Besides the linens’ obvious leisure features, it has gone for good uses for those physically impaired. Customer, Elaine Molina, discovered the sheets after her mother passed away and believes it could have made a difference in her mother’s life, “One of my biggest concerns was that she would try to get up to reach something and would end up falling and hurting herself. Even reaching the bedside table was a bit of a feat for her. FunctionAll™ Linens would have been perfect as it would have kept everything she needed right at her fingers and eliminated the chances of her getting hurt. I could have even put the nurse call button inside the pocket so that it would have quit falling off the bed while she slept!”
Early on Joyce knew she wanted to keep the manufacturing of her product local. ”When I began my business the thought came to me that although labor would be a bit costly, this type of product could be done right here in Austin. The Pocket Shop is an added value manufacturer which means we are a work existing product by adding our specialized features. This type of manufacturing allows us to work with a wide variety of popular brands and to do what we do best which are pockets,” continues Joyce.
FunctionAll™ Linens are made in 100% cotton as well as organic cotton and bamboo. Their primary fabric is Egyptian cotton with colors varying in Taupe, Burgundy, Sage, and White. Hospital bed sheets come in the standard 60/40, but a few clients special order them in a cotton or Egyptian cotton. Orders can be taken via phone and more information found: http://functionall-linens.com/ Teresa Joyce invites interested consumers to visit Austin’s all natural mattress and eco friendly furniture store, “Beginning May 5th, 2011 Beds, Beds, and More on Burnet Lane will offer FunctionAll™ Linens at their location!
