    Iron Shield

    Some years ago, pure Teflon type products were released. The ability to transfer heat without friction is a feature ideal for ironing. With these benefits of Teflon in mind, we created the IRON SHIELD.

    By simply fitting the Iron Shield to your iron as per the enclosed instructions, you are faced with a remarkable product. Now you can iron any fabric, yes any fabric without ever burning, sticking or making the garment shiny.

    Whether it’s nylon, pure silk or parachute silk, taffeta or terylene you now iron on maximum temperature without ever damaging the fabric.

    Most clothes baskets are full of T-shirts and sweats with molded rubber or plastic transfers or have printed images. They too can now be ironed without any smuggling or lifting. Throw away your pressing clothes and forget about sorting your ironing. Increase the life and look of your garments. Take away the struggle and the chore! 800,000 people now have their lives back and you too can enjoy your ironing!

    • Fits all Irons
    • Complete fitting instructons enclosed
    • Never Scorch, Stick or Shine
    • Renews Irons Life
    • Australian Owned, Australian Made

    I grew up in a patchwork shop in Japan because my mother, Mama Ninja Mariko, has been running her patchwork shop in Kumamoto for 35 years now. We know the Japanese sewing scene inside and out because we have been exhibiting at major quilt shows such as the famous Tokyo International Quilt Festival for the last 20 years. We have taught over 9700 sewers throughout Australia, Europe and Japan through our hands on workshops.
