Why did they choose that fabric ?

I LOVE my Maclaren jogger, but it is simply too big to go on trips. Now that Wyatt is big enough to sit up on his own, it was time to get a travel stroller. I have been looking around and I kept wanting to get another Maclaren, but who wants to spend a minimum of around $100, for a small umbrella stroller? So I looked at cheaper alternatives. The price range out there is awesome, but what I want to know is who the heck is in charge of the design of these things!

Umbrella strollers frames are all fairly similar, but why, oh why do they all have to look like they cut up an old polyester clown costume ?
This is where my project began...

And this is how it ended....

With a few of my own improvements.
