A Small Aussie Weighted Blanket Manufacturer
Cherisse Spray founded Calming Moments in 2013 after she made her autistic son a weighted blanket.
Soon, friends and aquaintances within the autistic community were asking her to make one for them as well.
And so she stumbled into a business that helped people who find it difficult to sleep or remain calm.
By 2017, Cherisse had outgrown the capacity of her small at-home workshop and moved into premises on Rafferty Road in Mandurah, WA.
She employed her first staff members as the business grew – mostly by word-of-mouth.
Calming Moments was built by making three clear commitments:
- The product quality is exceptionally good.
- We charge our customers a fair price that reflects our Australia labour costs without charging unreasonable profit margins.
- We put our customers first and make their orders with love and care.
The business attracted strong support from within the Occupational Therapy profession because the blankets are custom-made in line with the recommended weight guidelines.
The Australian-made campaign certifies that all Calming Moments’ weighted blankets are Australian-made. (Or you are welcome to come visit our factory and see for yourself.)
What Makes Calming Moments' Weighted Blankets Unique?
Made with Love and Care
Our team of Aussie mums carefully makes each weighted blanket with love and care (and a lot of laughs).
Custom-made with the Right Weight
This gives your body the best calming effect.
Made with Silent Glass Beads
So that your sleep won’t be disturbed by poly pellets’ rustling, swooshing noises.
The Weight Won’t Shift Around
The cotton wadding keeps the beads in place so that the weight stays evenly distributed over your body.
This maximises the calming benefit.
