The company has a website with pictures of their full line, and rather dreary pictures of their building...

Perhaps they could answer the question "Who is/was Georges Sorel?".

Check-out their Flash (reflective) Ribbon, and the flowered California Ribbon... I've never seen either of those around here. Anyone out there know where I can get some of the California ribbon?
