The Blästa Henriët Story
A typical Scandinavian heat pack is unscented, made from plain linen and grain. Named ‘Vetekudde’ in Swedish it is a household item, valued for its multifunctional qualities and ability to provide natural pain relief.
Lo drew inspiration from her upbringing in Sweden and the natural remedies of her childhood when creating the first set of wheat bags for Blästa Henriët.
We will continue to add to our collection of made to last objects, making sure each item withstands the test of time – without compromising on functionality, quality materials and aesthetics.
Lo Blästa Henriët has a background in textile design and print and grew up in Sweden with artistic parents, many siblings and much love.
She is based in London and work from her studio in Kennington to create useful and beautiful objects made from natural materials.
Lo founded Blästa Henriët in 2017.
Our Wheat Bags and Eye Pillows are hand finished from our studio in South East London.
We manufacture in Britain and maintain a short supply chain, this means we can easily oversee production and at the same time minimise our carbon footprint.
We are careful of whom we choose to work with and always get to know our suppliers. The materials we use are all raw or natural, and certified free from chemicals and harmful dyes.
We work with European linen flax, which requires no irrigation or pesticides and very little water to grow. The process of producing linen fabric is naturally very sustainable.
The cotton is unbleached, untreated and free from harmful dyes. Our wheat is grown and harvested in the UK. All printing is done with eco-friendly inks by MagnaColours®. All packaging is FSC certified and 100% recyclable.
Linen is naturally hypoallergenic and softens with every use, making it perfect to wear close to your skin.
Our 100% unbleached European flax linen has not been dyed or treated with chemicals. It contains no harmful substances, making it fully biodegradable.
Certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
We fill our Wheat Bags and Eye Pillows with wheat grown and harvested by UK farmers.
The wheat grain naturally contains moisture that retains the warmth or cold when heated or frozen.
Dust or sprinkle your wheat pack with water on a regular basis when heating to maintain the moisture content and prevent the grain from drying out and scorching.
We use heavyweight unbleached and untreated cotton when making the inner bag that encapsulates the grain in our wheat packs.
The cotton contains no bleaching chemicals and maintain it’s natural state, making it well suited to wear close to your skin.
It has a tight weave and a strong and durable quality, ensuring those little grains will stay put.
