Hot on the heals of winning Invent with Tom and being stocked by Jojo Maman Bebe, we’re delighted to announce that we have appointed Ardega as our exclusive UK distributor. Ardega will be responsible for getting BlindSides™ into UK nursery retailers as well as stores which sell home furnishings, including blackout blinds.

Ardega will build on the interest from nursery retailers already generated following BlindSides’ success in the Invent with Tom competition. Moreover, Ardega is aware that it is not just parents who can benefit from BlindSides™ and will therefore also be approaching stores which are not exclusively targeted to the nursery market.

BlindSides™ have been developed to quickly and easily block out the light that creeps in down the sides of blackout roller blinds. Sold in pairs, BlindSides™ are portable, effective and easy to use. They simply hook over the top of an existing blackout blind to bridge the gap between the material and the wall. This blocks out any light slipping through the sides of the existing blind to create a dark space.

Jenny Leahy, Owner/Founder of BlindSides, commented,

“As soon as we met Ardega, we felt that it was a natural fit for BlindSides™; Ardega represents a strong stable of sleep-related products which are complementary to BlindSides™. We are excited to be working with Ardega to grow BlindSides™ into a product that every nursery and blinds retailer wants to stock.”

Nick Hampton, Director of Ardega, said,

“We’re always looking for new and innovative products to bring to the UK market for the first time and we are delighted to have been chosen to represent BlindSides™. BlindSides™ fits neatly into our existing product range and we are eager to start introducing it to retailers. Products which help sleep deprived parents are always popular!”

About BlindSides

Invented by mum of two Jenny Leahy, BlindSides™ is a simple, easy and cost effective solution for dark rooms. Available in pairs, the products hook over the top of existing roller blinds and create a barrier between the material edge and the wall. This blocks out the slivers of light and ensures that rooms are kept in the dark. They can be fitted in a matter of seconds and are light enough to take on holidays, business trips or other journeys.
