Modernist x Gravity Weighted Robe
The outlook for my WFH winter just got a whole lot heavier. This Weighted Robe, a collaboration between Modernist and Gravity, brings the anxiety-easing, stress-relieving, deep touch pressure stimulation of the weighted blanket to a working- and walking-about-friendly wearable format.
Gravity is one of the pioneers (blanketeers?) of the weighted blanket trend. They debuted their version of a product traditionally used for occupational therapy and other medical applications to the masses in need of some proprioceptive input (i.e., a big, long hug) in 2017.
Like weighted blankets, the Weighted Robe attempts to simulate the feeling of being held. Studies show this action increases serotonin and melatonin levels, both hormones that help you relax. But while blankets might have beads and sands weighing up to 15 pounds distributed throughout their surface area, the Weighted Robe isolates its additional weight in the collar, in the form of a 3-pound removable insert.
The rest of the Modernist x Gravity Weighted Robe is your standard wraparound cloak of coziness. It is made of 100% polyester fleece, and comes in navy and grey.
