The Story of the Huggle

At the end of 2007, my sister Alex gave me a homemade sleeve blanket. I liked it, but didn't use it in the way it was intended: not covered from the front, but put on from behind like a coat.

Despite the comfort, both ways of wearing had their disadvantages: Sitting at the desk, the feet were not warm enough. You couldn't walk around with it without brushing the floor and running the risk of tripping over it. When not in use, blanket was difficult to stow away. These disadvantages had to be remedied!

In the summer of 2008 I decided to tackle it, bought a sewing machine and started tinkering. In the spring of 2009 the first prototype – which was still a bit awkward - saw the light of day.

The invention was granted a patent in Great Britain in 2013 and a patent in Germany in 2014.

But it wasn't until the beginning of 2018 that the Huggle made its breakthrough, thanks to the media attention of an inventor show on German TV.

Thanks to everyone who welcomed the Huggle so lovingly into the world!
