My motivation to start Cool-jams in 2007 was because I was having terrible sleep problems. I tried so many brands of sleepwear and couldn’t find anything to help me to stay cool, dry and temperature regulated. The more I talked to other men and women with the same issues, the more I understood that I was on to something. As a textile expert, I knew there had to be a better way to sleep if I could just develop some fabrics that would help wick moisture, eliminate temperature swings and dry rapidly. It was a tall order, because I was not only concerned about developing a smart fabric to help me sleep better, but I wanted great looking products as well. After several years of research & development, I found the Cool-jams solution and was ready to launch. The result was our stylish yet functional Cool-jams Sleepwear collection. We test each of our fabrics and products at certified textile labs to make sure they perform as expected. The side-by-side testing we did against all other wicking sleepwear brands showed us that our Cool-jams Sleepwear was more effective against night sweating and temperature regulation than any other wicking sleepwear brand in the marketplace. Customers started realizing this and have done so much to spread the word about our amazing products. Needless to say, we’re grateful.
I learn so much by listening to our customers on a daily basis. Did you know that many of our styles, prints, and colors were developed because you asked? Shortly after our debut, customers began to tell us that Cool-jams were the perfect travel pajama because they were so lightweight and quick drying so we now have a travel sleepwear collection page on our website. I also added several collections of bedding because many of our customers asked us to provide them with even more sleep solutions to complement our sleepwear. We now offer bamboo bedding and a wide variety of temperature regulating bedding products that work in perfect harmony with our sleepwear.
Even though we spend one third of our lives in bed, I think most people totally underestimate how important a great night’s sleep can be. My mission is to help everyone on our planet get the sleep they need and deserve.
