Levinsohn Textile Company is looking to the Edison Nation community for your innovations in Bedding and Sleep Categories

sgdromms's Avataren_staff_badge

Levinsohn Textile Company is a third generation, family owned business, founded in New York City in 1941. Their company began as an importer of fine European fabrics, and has since grown into a leading source for home fashion and utility bedding.

They design and produce categories such as bed linens, mattress and pillow protectors and decorative pillows, and have recently signed on as a licensee the New York Botanical Garden.

A growing company, they now have their sights set on a new brand/division of their organization that they are developing and they have come to you, the innovators of the Edison Nation community, to learn about your creative products to assist with all things sleep.

We know many innovators wake during the night with that light-bulb idea, but the focus of Levinsohn for this search is those innovative products that help you prepare for a good night of sleep and enhance your sleep experience. It can range from products that help lull you to sleep, through scent or touch, or even be products that make it easier for you to dress and prepare your bed or bedding products that make your sleep more comfortable, like mattress pads.

So, go get a good night sleep, dream about those products that will make bedtime more comfortable and relaxing, and let your mind wander.

Levinsohn products can be found at retailers like: Bed, Bath & Beyond, JC Penneys, Target and Walmart.

Wow, I don't ever recall there being more active searches at one time as there are right now.  There are currently 13 active searches comprised of 8 new searches, ASOTV Q1 search, along with the 4 always-on searches.  Exciting!!!

This search is now close. Did you submit your idea, Rodney? Anyone else submitted an idea? Is everyone still green? What stage are you at? Mine is still G3. I expect we'll start seeing G4/R4s soon now that the search has closed.

I can see your posts, Terrance. I couldn't see your older posts a few days ago, but they've appeared now. Looks like they fixed the problem.

I'm out.

How is everyone else doing? I saw Terrance has a G4 (and it's probably about to turn G7 in the next few days or so I hope). Are you still green Darlene?

I'm at G5 today as well.  Any idea from those here with experience about how many may be selected?  I would guess that a company could choose multiple ideas to pursue, but don't really know the processes here.

Jumped from G5 to G7 overnight!  The invention has been a finalist with EN multiple times, fingers crossed that this is the ONE that goes G8.

Good luck to all!

Good luck to all G7's at the upcoming presentation.

Jumped to G7 overnight, so did another user who seems to be in ghost-status as I was for a while (no one can see her posts)  So there are at least 3 at G7 for the presentation today.  I hope they select us all!

Unlike Adam who said his invention has been a finalist multiple times, my submission was created just for Levinsohn. Although  I've faced the problem It solves for decades there were other solutions,  just those solutions were not as energy, cost or climate-friendly as my new one.  It was my third overall submissions (others still green but G4 or lower) so this is exciting. 

Thanks for all the positive feedback on this forum.

TIming question from a newbie.  Is there a rough time on how long after presentations before notifications, or is it too variable? 

@Tim. I have wondered how many people are actively submitting.   Not that many posts on the forum but I guess that it may be a poor indicator of overall activity.   I did get that all are presented -- I was hoping all three of us make it G8.

   Terrance;   they have 6 months from presentation or more to decide or not , they cut the first wave with in 45 days , then they get down to the the top three or so and maybe go with them or not ! some searches nobody moves forward and sometimes 2 or 3 move forward to testing and market research and so on !!    TJM ,                                            I say some searches have hundreds of entries and other searches not so many !some searches are very narrow on the problem they are trying to solve and others are wide open .

Congratulations on the G7, as well as the fortitude to stay the course for 7 years.  Hope your determination leads to a licensing deal.
