Sleep is vital. After a restful night we feel full of energy, ready to face all challenges.

Hence, it is surprising that we spend 1/3 of our life in the same type of pyjamas that were worn 40 years ago. Dagsmejan was founded to create a new kind of functional sleepwear, catering to our physiological sleep needs, because sleep quality is life quality.

Innovative fibers and functional design have revolutionized sportswear for the better.
Together with leading European materials scientists, textile engineers and sleep researchers, Dagsmejan has taken those functional ideas from sportswear to develop a new kind of sleepwear, helping us to sleep better.
Dagsmejan sleepwear comprises of five core collections, all addressing distinct functional needs – BALANCE, STAY WARM, STAY COOL, RECOVERY and RELAX. All Dagsmejan products are made of finest natural fibers and are sustainably produced in Europe.

Dagsmejan was nominated for Design Prize Switzerland 2019/20
