Weighted blankets are highly regarded by medical experts. They have successfully been used in hospitals and in therapy for decades to naturally reduce stress and promote restful sleep.  

Extensive research has been done on the benefits and effectiveness of weighted blankets. The results are amazing:

Weighted blankets work – and they will help you too.  

They use the power of deep pressure stimulation – a well-known therapeutic method - to activate pressure points in your body scientifically proven to improve sleep and relaxation.

Also, weighted blankets help your body during sleep by pushing it downwards. This is called grounding and it has a very calming effect on your body and mind.  

Zen Blanket is designed to resemble the feeling of being hugged or held. The physical connection you feel to the blanket creates and sense of warmth and safety, relaxing your body.

The result: increase in production of serotonin and melatonin. Your body’s cortisol levels decrease:

Weighted blankets also help produce dopamine and endorphins – your body’s feel good hormones. What’s more - your heart rate and blood pressure decreases.  

Weighted blankets are perfect for anyone who want to sleep better and reduce stress – and this is backed by science. 

Choose between 4 weights for your perfect match. We recommend that you select around 10% of your body weight:

Zen Blanket should be around 10% of your body weight.
Zen Blanket should be around 10% of your body weight.

We also have a 7 lb (3 kg) version designed for children teens between 40-100 lbs (20-45 kg).

Choose between 2 stylish color options - Midnight Blue or Moon Grey:

Besides improving your health, Zen Blanket looks and feels amazing.  

From luxury materials to immaculate design, Zen Blanket is the best blanket you will ever experience. The outer shell is made of ultra-soft velvet. Velvet is a luxury material with a very elegant look. It has throughout history been used by royals and in castles.

The beautiful large diamond-shaped pattern is inspired by the interior of some of the world's most expensive cars.  

We designed the inside of Zen blanket with a clever grid like pattern. The weight is evenly distributed over your body.  

The weights are premium high density plastic poly pellets. The material is both solid and soft. Our plastic poly pellets are non-toxic, odorless, durable, washer/dryer safe and pet and child safe.

The blanket (both outside and inside) is completely machine washable. It is made of 100% natural cotton that is breathable.

The outer shell is removable for the warmer summer months. With our design, you are never too hot or too cold.

Have trouble falling asleep? Feeling stressed? You are not alone.

                                  Statistics for the US population  

That’s 6 out of 10 people in the US that have trouble falling asleep at least one night per week.

Bad sleep and stress can destroy your body and health in the following ways: 

  • Weight gain
  • Bad skin
  • Lack of energy
  • Lack of focus
  • Hair loss
  • Aging
  • Bad memory 
  • Depression 
  • Stroke 
  • Irritation
  • Brain damages 
  • Bad stomach 
  • Substance abuse 
  • Heart problems 
  • Early death 

Take action! Don’t let bad sleep and stress destroy your health - mitigate the risks instead. Get the sleep and relaxation you need – with Zen Blanket.

 *The smallest 7 lb (3 kg) version is designed for children and teens. It measures: 41 x 63" (104 x 160 cm). It is suitable for children weighing 40-100lbs (20 - 45 kg). 

We, Z Trading Handelsbolag, are a health start-up in lovely Sweden! We have studied the incredible benefits of weighted blankets. Although they are well known in the medical community, they are not as widespread among the rest of society. We decided to bring the benefits to our sleep deprived and stressed out world.  

We can personally relate to sleep problems and stress. We don’t believe in dependency on the pills and drugs offered by the drug industry. We wanted a natural and effective way to improve sleep and well-being.

After many prototypes, and many happy testimonials from our early testers, we have finally reached a beautiful design we are happy with. Our trusted manufacturing partner has produced a sample run and they are ready to go. All we need is enough orders to meet their minimum order quantity before we can start production. With your help, we can secure enough orders to start production of the first batch and bring Zen Blanket to you.

Risks and challenges

Our manufacturing partners are ready to go and we have already produced a small sample run. We will work closely with our partners to ensure the highest quality and to ensure that all stages of our manufacturing and fulfillment goes smoothly.
If the amount of orders by far exceeds our expectations, it might take a bit longer to fulfill the orders. If that happens, the orders are fulfilled in the chronological order.

We are confident in our product and ready to manufacture Zen Blanket to bring the benefits to our sleep deprived world!
