About Us

Hello and Welcome to Calma Sleeps!

My journey into starting a sleep care brand began when I was dealing with multiple food allergies and eczema in my first borne and losing sleep for both us parents and our precious baby. The incessant scratching that comes with eczema is unbearable, let alone seeing it in your child.

In addition to food, I started looking into everything, from laundry detergents to cleaning chemicals, soaps, fragrances and lotions (often the ones prescribed by doctors), in a bid to calm her skin. It wasn't until she was tested for dust-mites that we found she was allergic to that as well. I took a nose dive into learning everything about dust-mite allergies and discovered the benefits of bamboo fabric.

Its inherent antibacterial and hypoallergenic properties, cooling, soft and smooth texture and the ability to wick moisture away made it an ideal fabric of choice for my daughter with irritated skin. I switched to bamboo bedding and witnessed amazing results. Her itching decreased significantly and she finally started to sleep through the night in her third year. It was a game-changer, allowing us to finally get decent sleep!

Wanting to share this discovery with other parents, I realized there was no organic, chemical free option in the market. That's when I decided to embark on this journey to curate products that would be certified organic as well as OEKO-TEX standard 100, meaning it would be free from harmful chemicals and dyes often prevalent in the textile industry.

During this process I also learnt how bamboo was a more renewable resource and therefore more sustainable than other plants. I was determined to make my brand sustainable and my products eco-friendly and therefore chose Bamboo lyocell, a fabric that requires fewer chemicals to manufacture.

All our packaging is sustainably designed and made from fsc certified paper  that is either compostable or plastic that is either compostable or recyclable with non toxic soy based inks used on our cards and tissue paper. We are striving to do our best for the environment, so you can rest easy knowing that our products are good for you and the planet.

We hope that you love our products as much as we do and it brings you calm, comfort and quality sleep!

With Love,
