'ARTFELT DESIGNSTM began as
a design studio for one-of-a-kind jewelry & home decor items. One
of our earliest creations was a photo frame, which won Honorable Mention
in a national design contest (one of 50 winners out of 5,500 entries)
and was subsequently published in a hardcover book by Oxmoor House
However, we've had to put other projects
on the "back burner" because of the overwhelming response
to HEAVENLY HEATTM Paks,
our organic microwave/freezer comfort packs. This came about as
a result of researching therapies to relieve migraine headaches.
While traveling out west in 1994, following the "Trail of
Tears", we heard of a home remedy that early settlers used.
They wrapped grain in cloth and warmed them on the hearth under
a woodstove - and applied this to the afflicted area. (Some have
suggested this was an adaptation of a Native American method to
We took this traditional method, wrapped
the organics in polar fleece, and combined it with the microwave. This
happy combination produces a wonderful, soothing moist heat without
having to soak or spray the pack with water!
In September 1997, QVC featured Heavenly
Heat Products' Hot Massage Mitt on a 3-hour live broadcast from
New Hampshire. In just a few minutes on the air, it sold out, later
getting a second order from QVC.
Paks were also in a Japanese catalog called "Outdoor Life"
and we filled several large orders for them. When we saw the 'tear sheets'
with all the info in Japanese, we just had to go to the local prep school
& get Asian students to translate it for us!
In 1997 we introduced Toasty Teddy Paks
- a cuddly teddy-bear style, microwave/freezer comfort pack. These are
meant for any age but were especially designed with abuse and trauma
survivors in mind. The poem that comes with each Toasty Teddy Pak reflects
our desire to be of comfort these courageous folks.
In 1999 we introduced the Heavenly Heat
Products' "Spa Line" - our most popular styles made available
in "oatmeal Berber", a natural upscale look with tonal embroidery.
