I looked up airplane seat covers and there was nothing on the market that met the requirements for what I had in mind. Since I regularly work with pattern makers and stitchers, it was clear that I needed to create my own product; and of course add to the list that it needs to look good and be made to last; that's what we do when we make costumes.
Multiple prototypes and several test flights later, I had a winner and NiceSeats was born in 2005.
I originally designed my seat covers for airplanes, but the more I had them with me in different situations, like on a hot and sticky bus in Cuba for example, the more I was delighted by how versatile they truly are.
You can also easily fit them on train, bus seats, or even on movie theater seats. My favorite part of this journey is hearing the different ways in which people fine a use for NiceSeats.
One repeat customer messaged me that she had spread her seat cover out on the floor at a gate, as a space for her kids to play while waiting to board a plane. It's fantastic to offer something that people can use in a ways specific to their needs.
While I created NiceSeats with the intention of making time in transit more pleasant, it’s become much more to me than that. While I always knew having a barrier between myself the countless others who've sat in my seat would reduce the chances of getting sick on planes it's never been more important than it is today in the time of Coronavirus. Now it's apparent we need to change the way we do things. Making a shared space your space is one of many ways we can protect ourselves and our loved ones.
Safe and happy travels,
