Blästa Henriët is a Scandinavian brand with strong focus on durable design. Using natural and raw materials they have developed a collection of therapeutic wheat bags, eye pillows and spa loungewear. Their wellbeing products are made from European, hypoallergenic linen that is kind to your skin. With a skill and passion for craftsmanship, each piece is made by hand in their London studio while supporting supports British craftsmanship.
At our Crafty Christmas Market, they will be offering their Nordic take on the traditional hot water bottle, a flexible and natural linen wheat pack that can be heated in the microwave or oven and cooled down in the freezer. The Wheat Bag offers snug warmth as well as therapeutic deep heat to ease muscle tension, relieve joint pain and soothe cramps. It can also be used as a cold pack to reduce swelling and ease migraines.
The wheat bags can be used during yoga & therapy, as a cold compress after injury or simply as a heat pack to stay warm and cosy. With secure double stitching and the use of sustainable materials I can ensure a durable product that is made to last and doesn’t cost the earth. By manufacturing in England with materials sourced locally or within Europe I can limit my carbon footprint and contribute to a greener environment.
