Discover why the Monocle highlights the success of Dagsmejan and our high-tech sleepwear.
Swiss pyjama start-up Dagsmejan probably shouldn’t have succeeded. In 2016, Catarina Dahlin and Andreas Lenzhofer (pictured) founded the company in middle age – an unusual time to do so – to disrupt a dusty, arguably unnecessary corner of the textile sector that receives far less investor action than technology or pharmaceuticals. Making it a direct-to-consumer company, an uncommon model in Switzerland, only lengthened the odds of Dagsmejan’s success. And yet the company has raised CHF4m (€4m) by promoting its eucalyptus-and-merino-wool pyjamas as doing for nightwear what the multibillion-euro Swiss success story On did for trainers.
Dagsmejan even managed to snare seven of On’s original investors, showing that there is no harm in borrowing tried-and-tested methods, personnel and even language. “Most investors are interested in fintech, biotech, med tech or food tech,” co-founder Catarina Dahlin told Neue Zürcher Zeitung. “Maybe we should have written ‘tech’ on the pyjamas.” Dagsmejan now refers to its products as “sleeptech” – and its founders sleep soundly too."
