Crypton Fabric Technology
Crypton began as a problem-solving idea: creating fabric that was stain, moisture and bacteria resistant, yet soft
and breathable. The only options before Crypton were sticky vinyls and hot, rough, unpleasant-to-touch treated
fabrics. Armed with decades of experience in the textile industry as well as advice and assistance from
researchers, chemists and textile engineers, the Rubins set to work on that clearly defined problem in the
basement of their Michigan home. The eureka moment came in 1993 with the development of Crypton Super
Fabrics, which the Rubins protected with multiple global patents. Fast forward over twenty years, 16 patents
later, Crypton has become a household name. This American Made fabric has been used by top brands all over
the country. From La-z-Boy to ABC Home and Carpet, to Raymour and Flannigan to the Hilton Hotel chain,
Crypton’s innovative fabric has changed the way consumers and families live.
Crypton manufactures textiles through a process that transforms every woven fiber for permanent moisture,
stain, bacteria and odor resistance. It also creates an integrated breathable barrier beneath those fibers, resulting
in a perfect, impenetrable shield. As a result, Crypton Super Fabrics always perform as promised. They feel
wonderful to the touch, and are available in an array of patterns, colors and textures for a wide variety of
interior and exterior uses.
Crypton offers a range of consumer fabrics in textures such as woven, print, suede, leather and velvet, and
products ranging from upholstery to furniture, pillows, Throvers, pet beds, aprons and more. The range of
applications continues to grow, including Crypton Outdoor, an interior/exterior fabric; and INCASE Crypton
Technology, which is a fabric treatment that offers the same stain and odor
protection, but is used in applications where a barrier is not required.
Crypton’s introduction and the Rubins’ marketing savvy have generated an entirely new category of upholstery
options, achieving unprecedented growth. Designers who use Crypton tend to be loyal customers, often giving
Crypton the highest marks for fabric performance. According to a 2009 study conducted by Interior Design
magazine, Crypton increased the brand’s familiarity 28 percent in the contract fabric market and 31 percent in
the residential fabric market from 2008 – 2009.

Dear Operation Blankets of Love friend,


DON'T KNOW WHAT TO GIVE FOR VALENTINE'S DAY? Give the gift of love...of hope...of life to a homeless animal.

Yes, we sent this last week. But we added this in red below and a few more pictures what we see before we give them the necessities they need to stay alive and happy!! If you responded already with a donation, we thank you. If you did not, please reread and dig deep into your hearts especially on Valentine's Day!!and give whatever you can. And tell a friend to join you today and make a gift of life.

YOU have a pet(s) to love? The homless dogs and cats we help to save their lives one by one have no one loving them. That is why we are here to comfort them and bring them what they need to be happy.
In honor or in memory of your pet please read and look into your heart and for Valentines Day help save the life of a homeless animal by making a monetary donation today to Operation Blankets of Love. Please we need to continue what we do!!!

Many Shelters have no buildings and the dogs are forced to be outside and freeze.

Operation Blankets of Love is the nations only animal advocacy non profit organization that provide aid and comfort to 1,000 homeless animals a month.
We not only help the pets of the homeless but 35 shelters, hundreds of rescue groups, fosters, transports of "death row" dogs and cats that are flown or driven to new homes.
We give $500 to over $1,000 worth of items such as blankets, pet beds, towels, grooming supplies, dog igloos, cat trees, pet clothes,food, treats and so much more.
Abandoned Dog in Doorway

Have you ever thought about what it might be like to be homeless?What it would be like to be at the mercy of the elements? Alone. Afraid. Hungry. Cold. And if you were homeless, what would become of your beloved pets?

Meet Austin and his puppy, Freya!!! One of OBOL's Team Captains raised funds to get Freya spayed and licensed and drove her to and from the vet. Austin is one of the most responsible pet owners we have ever met, and he loves Freya more than anything!

Operation Blankets of Love is an emergency rescue organization to the animal rescue world. For more than three years OBOL has provided monthly relief to the pets of homeless people in the Greater Los Angeles County area.


Each homeless person is given up to $100 worth of provisions per pet such as food, treats, blankets, towels, pet beds, leashes, toys, harnesses, carriers, and portable canvas dog houses.

OBOL provides food, bedding, treats and more.
Our outreach program touches many homeless lives, from young people to seniors and physically challenged individuals in wheelchairs. While the majority of these homeless people have dogs as companions, some had cats and kittens, too.


These homeless people rely on their companion animals in many ways and the individuals that OBOL has helped love their pets and can't imagine life without them. Because of the economic challenge of being homeless, pet owners are in danger of losing their companion animals if they cannot afford to have them spayed/neutered and licensed. One of our OBOL Team Captains raises money for this purpose so the animal control does not take them away to a shelter. We are fortunate to work with a very compassionate veterinarian who does this work for a discounted price, allowing us to do more for these people and their pets.


Grants Pass Homeless
OBOL donates items to the homeless in Grants Pass, Oregon. An OBOL volunteer drives up to deliver the desperately needed items.

Several animal welfare agencies offer free or low-cost spay/neuter surgery via Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinics that travel to many low- income neighborhoods where there is limited access to veterinary care and animal care education. OBOL is called upon to donate blankets and towels to use before and after surgery.

OBOL also meets with each pet's family to donate pet items such as food, treats, toys, leashes and collars. Plus we meet with children to provide humane education on how to be responsible and to respect their pets.

OBOL donated food, blankets, leashes and a canvas dog tent that provides shelter for this homeless man's sole companion but is easy to move.

We can't do this without you!

Your gift of love will help us provide more comfort and aid to the homeless and their pets. Please send your gift of life of $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, or any amount you can afford.
