HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We are excited to announce that we will be starting off our new year in our brand new warehouse. We are working hard behind the scenes to settle in to our new space and get started hand making our beautiful weighted blankets. We will be releasing a handful of colors sometime at the end of January. Please make sure to sign up for our newlsetter to be the first to find out the exact date and time that blankets will be released. We appreciate all of your support and patience.

Sustainably handmade from deadstock, upcycled, & recycled fabric.
How It Works
Weighted blankets provide soothing pressure to the body which stimulates receptors in the skin to calm and regulate the nervous system. This triggers a release of serotonin and dompamine which aid in the regulation of emotional respones and reduces the stress hormone, cortisol.
Created By A Mother's Loving Hands
Designed to provide deep pressure when draped over the body, it gives comfort and security. Perfect for calming the "fight or flight" response of the body.
Our blankets are soft and sturdy, breathable yet thick--something to envelop and shelter without overwhelming the senses. Hand-woven and using dead stock fabrics, each blanket is constructed with love and meant to be treasured.
We’re dedicated to shattering the stigma that weighted blankets are sterile, clinical and only for those in hardship. Weighted blankets are amazing and for everyone: who couldn’t use a good hug after a long day? Likewise, our blankets are not only natural and handcrafted, but also beautiful.
We never use plastic or polyester beads or pellets to add weight. Instead our woven blankets are constructed from a luxurious and thick jersey, breathable and natural, using only recycled or dead stock fabrics.
Weighted blankets are not meant to cure or treat medical conditions and should not be a substitute for treatment or medication (contact your primary care doctor or consult with an occupational therapist for further evaluation). Weighted blankets are never recommended for infants/children under the age of 2.
