Twillow is the first pillow designed for window-seat travelers. Our unique and proven design gives you the best possible sleep experience on flights, bus trips, or in car travel, filling the gap in your life--and your neck--left by sweatshirts, blankets, or insufficient airline pillows.

My Story

It was a legendary last night in Vegas--I didn’t sleep, just went straight to the airport to catch my flight home. A four-hour trip, a window seat, and a few aspirin for the beginnings of my headache: perfect conditions for a mile-high nap, right? Wrong. The bulkhead was hard and my head pounded against it as I molded and plied any fabric I could get my hands on: my sweatshirt, a blanket, my backpack, a tiny and spongy airline pillow...but nothing cut it.

That’s when it hit me: What if there were a pillow specifically designed to fit between the window and my head and neck? Not some ridiculous-looking, horseshoe-shaped neck pillow or unwieldy inflatable behemoth--something sleek, streamlined, portable, and, most of all, comfortable. Twillow was born.

In spite of this overwhelming statistic, no product on the market today caters specifically to window-seat travelers.

Twillow is a simpler, more comfortable solution.

 

Twillow rests on your shoulder to support your head and neck, creating the most comfortable solution for sleeping against windows while traveling, whether by plane, train, bus, or car.

Its unique design is self-supporting, so you don’t have to stuff a jacket or sweatshirt between your head and the wall anymore. There’s a simpler, more comfortable solution.

            

Twillow’s unique wedge shape has nearly unlimited applications and we encourage our users to get creative. Slip a carabiner through the loop at the base of your Twillow and take it with you wherever you need a little extra comfort:

  • Prop up your iPad to watch a movie in your favorite coffee shop.
  • Sleep under the stars on a camping trip without the extra bulk of a traditional pillow.
  • Clip Twillow to your diaper bag so baby can sit up and play at the park or on the go.
  • Enjoy a glass of wine by the fireplace with Twillow for two!

Athletes, musicians, business travelers, students, parents, and beyond: Twillow is a great fit for everyone, no matter your lifestyle.

Although so far limited in its scope, Twillow has received rave reviews from its 50 test users:

Here are a few quotes from satisfied customers:

Currently, Twillow is manufactured in a small facility in Michigan. At present, production is limited and expensive. A successful [crowd-funding] campaign will allow us to...

...improve Twillow’s design, creating a saleable and marketable product, and

...research and implement a more cost-effective manufacturing solution, ultimately passing our savings on to consumers.

Now we're ready to take Twillow to the next level, and that's where your help comes in! With this fundraise, we're hoping to raise $10,000 to support the next phase in Twillow's evolution.


 

Stretch Goals - Travel More!

Since my first experiences away from my smalltown Ohio home, I have had two chief passions in my life: entrepreneurship and travel. When I was 24, I spent three weeks backpacking through Europe, and since then, have prioritized global travel in my life: I began working for a global corporation which has sent me on trips to Asia and Europe, enrolled in a global MBA program, and relocated to Singapore for two months in early 2015.

Throughout these experiences, I have come to a deep appreciation for the ways in which travel can mold and shape a person’s goals and ideals. Meeting people from a variety of cultures, immersing oneself in cultures dissimilar from one’s own, indulging the wanderlust travel bug, and seeing the world’s most amazing places are all invaluable in creating a world community of well rounded human beings.

To that end, 10% of every dollar raised over $10,000 will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio to support an excursion into the wilderness, as well as educational programs.  My hope is that experiences, like camping, will inspire a desire for travel and the outdoors in youth facing adversity.  Education will then be the driving force to provide them means to continue traveling in the future.

In the spirit of wanting people to travel more and travel better, I will also hold a random drawing for a $500 rebate for a round-trip ticket anywhere in the world to a lucky funder if I reach 500 Twillows purchased!!

Let’s do this!!!
