About the Sleep Easy travel mask

It all came about from my travels as an adventurer and, more recently, as a doctor. From my many journeys by plane, train, coach and  car, I could never find the right body position in order to sleep when I was travelling.

When I thought about it more carefully, my lack of sleep was due to my poor body position, especially my head when trying to gain 40 winks. Once my head moved, I was forced awake. So I set about designing and creating a simple eye mask that would hold my head in a firm, near upright position. Through my novel mask design I gained comfortable hours of sleep which allowed me to arrive at my destination refreshed - and ready for action. 

And so my company had a product and was born!

My Sleep Easy creation combines a comfortable padded eye mask with an elasticated and adjustable head band support. 

It comes in its own uniquely designed carry case, suitable to take on any journey. You can tuck it away in your bag or briefcase. It makes an ideal gift for anyone who is on the move and values peaceful sleep.

Risks and challenges

We have designed the Sleep Easy with quality materials that have been sourced Internationally from the UK, China and India. In taking the design forward, we have already registered its creative uniqueness. And, in arriving at the final design, we have been guided by an experienced clothing manufacturer in its final creation and use of fabric. We are comfortable in knowing that we can maintain quality, material supply and throughput.

We have chosen quality soft faux velvet to surround a thick wadding to create a comfortable and cushioned mask. Once edged, it is trimmed with binding to provide a professional finish and contrast. Jacquard elastic is attached simply to the upper part of the mask to provide that necessary head support and seat adjustability. Presently, you can choose from 4 colours and an exclusive Kickstarter colour which are chosen to complement the navy blue headband elastic.

Finally, we are delivering the Sleep Easy in its own stylised case to tuck away and keep clean for your next journey.

Well, the product is now ready to ship. We have been with this project now for many months -18 in fact. In that time, we have met with suppliers and manufacturers, and had to overcome some major hurdles. The design has changed, the materials have changed – and certainly our passion has needed to carry us.

And, we have finalised our after sales service procedures and email addresses. And, you can be assured that if we meet problems such as manufacturing logistics, product delivery or customer support, we will be using all our skills to overcome them.

For the future, we will be setting up the Sleep Easy website and a linked social media pages so that we can reach more people who want to buy into our innovation. This could be travel clubs, international distributors, airlines, and retail outlets - worldwide. We want to cover all the bases.

So, if you or your friends are in these markets, tell them to get in touch. We are talking to lots of people around the world – so get your friends in on the product through the Kickstarter launch. We want as many supporters, backers and customers as we can reach!
