About us


“The idea for the our weighted blanket emerged out of necessity. During one of many sleepless nights, we were browsing the internet for ways to eliminate insomnia. We stumbled upon heavy blankets that are applied in the therapeutic community. These weighted blankets have been used for years in the medical environment with great success and feedback. So we decided to share the therapeutic benefits of weighted blankets with the world.”

Our story in milestones

The Idea

October 2017

Struggling with sleep, the founders were looking for ways to improve sleep. During research, we discovered the benefits of weighted blankets. The idea was born to start up a weighted blankets brand.


November 2017 - May 2018

In May 2018 the final sample was ready. We designed and constructed our blanket from scratch with one goal in mind: to develop the best weighted blanket on the market.

In July and August we have successfully conducted a campaign on Kickstarter. The collection of 33.000 EUR via pre-orders made this project happen. Thanks for your support!
