Crypton's Pet "Throver" Review and Giveaway!

We're thrilled to be able to review the amazing "Throver", a gorgeous blanket for your pets (and humans, too!) created by Crypton, that comes in a wide variety of stunning colors and patterns.
We received two Throvers from Crypton, one to review and the other for our giveaway. Otherwise, we were not compensated for this post and our opinions expressed in this review are our own.

See the end of this post to enter our giveaway to win one beautiful Throver! Plus get the secret discount code at the end of this post, for all those who enter this giveaway. The photo below is the Wilshire pattern Throver in "Pool" and the exact Throver that will be shipped to our lucky winner! 
Note: Entrants must live in the continental U.S. only.

We first learned of Crypton from an advertisement in The Bark magazine, and when we checked out their array of home furnishings, and pet accessories, like beds, mats and Throvers, we were smitten.

First, because all of their fabrics and the products they make with them are simply gorgeous. If you take the time to care for your home (and we don't mean just the fancy-schmancy stuff-anything you purchase is worthy of good care) you don't want your furry companions shedding, leaking, drooling and who knows what else on your furniture, carpets and other pretty surfaces. And why look at a sheet-covered sofa or a dowdy blanket-draped chair, when you can cover your furniture, floors and even your car seats with something beautiful, in a color or pattern that matches your decor and that you'll be happy to look at every day? Crypton even has William Wegman, the artist and famed Weimaraner photographer, on board to share his playful, doggy-themed designs for many of its product lines.

And I think it's the perfect soft spot to play with my toys. (The color of this Throver is "Pear".)

                             Or look out the window...

And according to the company website, Crypton fabric is "permanently stain, moisture, mildew, bacteria and odor-resistant." Even the nastiest stains dab up with a damp cloth (some stains require light detergent and water to remove)-and it's "the only fabric on the market deemed a non-porous surface and can be easily disinfected with their own U.S. EPA-approved Crypton Disinfectant and Deodorizer". Crypton describes the Throver as "a luxury throw blanket that works like a tough tarp,", and we think this is an accurate description. Although the material is beautiful and soft to the touch, it is extremely substantial. We washed ours in cold water and threw it in the dryer on medium heat, and it came out feeling soft and supple (although we noticed later that the company recommends line-drying the Throver-oops!). We also haven't spilled anything on it to test the claims of impermeability, but after reading through Crypton's detailed website and examining the quality of the fabric, we believe them...although as stains appear and spills happen, as they inevitably will, we'll update this post with our clean-up efforts.

                Or play with my toys (did I say that already?)

And last, but certainly far from least in our book, Crypton as a company invests in renewable energy, carbon offsets, a recycling program and developing an "environmentally preferable chemistry" for their products which makes them "Indoor Air-Quality Certified by the Greenguard Environmental Institute - all of which we see as beneficial to both our current human and animal friends, and to our planet's long-term sustainable future. 

Overall, we think Crypton provides a myriad of solutions for pet people: want to keep your furniture clean and undamaged? Get a Throver. Is the fabric on a beloved piece of furniture ruined? Buy Crypton fabric by the yard and have it re-covered (Crypton fabrics are sold in all 500 Jo-Ann Fabric Superstore locations across the U.S.!) In need of a new sofa or chair? Order one from Crypton with your choice of Crypton Super Fabric right here: www.cryptonathome.com See...they've got all the bases covered!

Or yet another comfy place to perch while looking out the window...

I'm finally allowed on this couch! (See, the reverse side is a solid-color suede).

             Even Lady Bella thinks it's a great place to rest!
