Fast Facts:

Product Developer, Cartographer & Online Marketing Professional, Chris Thomas invented the very first Hibermate sleep mask way back in 2000. Chris had worked night shift and lived by a busy main road in the inner-city of Melbourne, Australia. His father and brother ran a foam factory nearby and Chris asked if he could try out some acoustic foam as a sound reduction option. He incorporated the foam into a sleeping blindfold, and so was born the very first Hibermate.

Light blocking and sound reduction in one simple product.

Chris had the first batch of 500 units locally made by a professional seamstress and Hibermate's ecommerce website launched on September 11, 2001 with very little fanfare, for obvious reasons.

In 2012, it was time to redevelop the original Hibermate and so a design partner was hired to improve sound blocking and the mask design. 

Once final prototypes were completed, Chris teamed up with an American friend, Dillon and together they launched the new Hibermate on Kickstarter.com in July of 2013.

Over the course of 30 days, the project went on to raise over $110,000. It was, at the time, one of Australia's most successful Kickstarter projects ever.

The Hibermate has been sold to almost every single country in the world, enjoys a 4 Star review rating on Amazon and helps thousands of people each year who are trying to sleep in noisy environments, whether it's noisy neighbours, a snoring partner or simply while travelling.

Each year Chris works to release a new and improved version of the Hibermate; working closely with his customers and various design partners to find out what issues need to be addressed and solved with each iteration.

As a company, our philosophy is to be honest and transparent, but most importantly, take care of our customers with the best products we can make.
