Sommerfly™ Products began with the mixing of ideas and passions of two sisters, Kristi Langslet and Heidi Langslet-Hall, who wanted to start their own business. Not just a small company that could provide for them, but one that could deliver well constructed, non-medicine based products that would truly improve the lives of those in need.
It all started when co-founder Kristi Langslet, a practicing Occupational Therapist, began designing and making products for her clients to meet specific needs related to Sensory Processing. Sleep, calm and focus were some of the primary challenges of her clients in the Sensory-Based Therapy Clinic in which she worked.
As more and more positive feedback came in it became very clear what Kristi had created worked and worked well. This didn't happen by pure luck but rather through countless hours of design and function testing directly with her patients. Kristi and Heidi were insistent that their products not only had to work well but also be of a quality that would benefit their customers in masses for many years to come.
Through testing their products with many different people and age groups, the results proved-out that they had truly hit their mark of "Calm, Sleep and Focus for All".
It was this hard work and persistence that created the Sommerfly's™ brand and allowed their dream to come to reality.
