A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
Yaasa Studios Infinity Blanket
The first blanket that increases blood flow*, aids recovery, and enhances rest with Celliant® fiber technology.
The Yaasa Studios Infinity Blanket is the first to use innovative infrared technology with blended organic cotton. It absorbs your body's energy and emits infrared light back into your tissue due to the unique use of Celliant® fibers. It's the special ingredient that creates the perfect balance of luxury, design, and wellness.
Whether you're an athlete looking for a recovery trick, a yogi seeking wellness and comfort during resting poses, or simply someone who's looking to improve sleep, The Yaasa Studios Infinity Blanket is perfect for you.
CELLIANT® TECHNOLOGY - Celliant® is blended into organic cotton to create a revolutionary fabric that increases energy levels in healthy individuals.
CLINICALLY TESTED - Celliant® fiber is recognized for its infrared (IR) properties and has been clinically tested.
ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS - The Infinity Blanket is manufactured with green practices in Europe and uses certified organic cotton. Up to 12 plastic water bottles are recycled in the production of each blanket.
We believe your blanket should do more for you, so we created one that absorbs and recycles body energy without compromising design or comfort.
With Celliant® fibers that improve health, organic materials that are top-tier, and design that refuses to compromise, The Yaasa Studios Infinity Blanket is different from the rest. Use the Celliant® fibers woven into the Infinity Blanket to decrease recovery time, increase blood flow*, and get the best sleep of your life.
It's the world's most innovative blanket, backed by scientific studies.
The Yaasa Studios Infinity Blanket increases blood flow*, energy, strength, and endurance using Celliant® technology.
IR has a vasodilator effect which expands blood vessels, increases energy levels, enhances cell vitality, and regulates body temperature. Higher energy levels equal more fuel for your body, aiding in recovery.
Celliant® is revolutionary, patented technology that recycles the body's natural energy (heat) into infrared (IR) light that is emitted back into the body's tissue.
Infrared is widely recognized for having positive effects on the body. The use of Celliant® fibers converts the body’s natural energy (heat) into infrared (IR) light and emits it into the body’s muscles. Over 60% of your consumed energy is lost simply through heat escaping your body.
Rather than trap your body heat, Celliant® turns that wasted energy into infrared light. The result is a responsive textile clinically tested to benefit the human body, utilizing a blend of minerals and proprietary ingredients embedded into the fiber’s core.
The Infinity Blanket blends Celliant® material with organic cotton to create a fabric that recycles and emits infrared light. On average, your body emits 100 watts of energy in a given moment. The Infinity Blanket is a unique way of taking advantage of that energy! This increases blood flow*, energy, strength, endurance, and decreases recovery time after an active day, supporting a more restful night's sleep.
Celliant® fiber is a different kind of performance technology and is CE recognized in Europe for its medical benefits and uses.
Celliant® fiber is CE recognized in Europe for its medical purposes and aid in healing through infrared (IR) light increasing the metabolic rate to provide more energy at a cellular level. It's also used to ease symptoms of various vascular and sleep conditions because of it's ability to improve oxygenation.
Third party clinical trials have proven the effectiveness of Celliant® technology, with studies conducted at top tier universities, including University of California Irvine, University of Calgary, UC Long Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Texas A&M University, and Loyola University Chicago.
Hospitals and doctors commonly use infrared light as a therapeutic treatment for conditions ranging from high blood pressure and congestive heart failure to muscle tears and rheumatoid arthritis.
Increase blood flow*, grow stronger cells, and regulate temperature with high volume of Celliant®.
Celliant® technology has been used in a number of different products, like clothing and bedding, to help users reach their full wellness potential. The transformation of your body's expelled energy to infrared light boosts your blood flow* to increase energy levels and deliver nutrients through your bloodstream.
The infrared light stimulates cell growth and regeneration to help heal injuries more quickly, reduce pain, and amplify your endurance.
The increased blood flow* allows your body to better manage your internal temperature and fall asleep faster-- 15 minutes faster in pilot studies!
Between our eco-friendly materials, sustainable sourcing, and neutral palettes, the Yaasa Studios Infinity Blanket is perfectly designed for any home.
Luxury and sustainability are woven into one beautiful blanket.
With certified organic cotton and Celliant® fiber made from recycled materials, we've woven luxury and sustainability into one innovative blanket. The Celliant® yarn is sourced directly from a manufacturer in Spain.
The Infinity Blanket is manufactured in Europe with diligent efforts toward green practices and selection of eco-friendly materials.
It's the perfect throw, comforter, sleep enhancer, and health benefiting all-in-one blanket.
With oversized dimensions, The Infinity Blanket is truly multi-functional. It can be used as a throw for your living room or a comforter for your bed. It makes the perfect travel companion on long flights or cramped road trips.
Best of all? It's durable, machine washable, and the technology never fades. To clean, simply throw it in your washing machine and tumble dry. Celliant® will last for the lifetime of the blanket, never washing out or breaking down.
We used simple shades of grey to create a stylish neutral palette for any interior space.
We designed the Infinity Blanket to suit any home design with a soft palette of greys. The timeless color conveys a sophisticated and conservative balance that matches any room of your home or your linens in your bedroom to blend into your life.
Our team plans on announcing new colors and sizes as the company grows.

Risks and challenges
-In order to make this project feasible we need to be able to order and
produce enough of the Celliant® yarn to actually make it economically
viable to market.
-The cost and logistical challenges of being able to test that the cotton and Celliant® materials cooperated together to create a luxury feeling with the cotton, while also ensuring we maintained enough of a percentage of Celliant® to have the desired wellness benefits.
-Testing was also needed for all possible reactions when blending and
weaving the two materials together, avoiding any shrinkage and
maintaining the premium quality of the product itself.
-We also needed to produce enough material to help offset the cost of
importation taxes and duty coming from Europe.
