About

DID WE MENTION IT LOOKS LIKE A PRETZEL?

NAPTIME. EVERYTIME. 

The Pretzel Pillow helps you fall asleep in any seat. Even the middle one. Between two lumberjacks. It's also great for texting, playing video games or taking naps in your car during work.

ONE SIZE SLEEPS ALL. 

Inside is a soft, flexible polyester batting that stretches with the weight of your arms. With several cuddly positions to choose from, you’ll be counting sheep before the seat belt sign goes off.

WE PUT THE FUN IN FUNDING.

 Here's a list of the rewards (also featured on the right side of the page.)

Fits perfectly in a GOBAG next to a MAGBELT (Blatant cross-promo.)

WHEN ERGONOMIC EXPERTS TALK, WE LISTEN. 

*We listen to regular people too.

THE SEAT STRUGGLE IS REAL.

In case you're still on the fence click this recent article from the NY TIMES.

                                

WHO IS PRETZEL PILLOW? 

My name is Chris Pouy and I’m the son of an airline pilot and a flight attendant so needless to say I’ve spent a lot of time on planes, but not one single moment has been asleep. The issue isn’t my head, it’s my arms so I created the Pretzel Pillow to solve my own problem.

Slight resemblance.

We love it when a plan comes together.

Risks and challenges

Obviously there are inherent risks and challenges with creating something from nothing. Most people here have never attempted anything like this before. We're all learning as we go, together, but those mistakes can be mitigated with preparation, anticipation and learning from where other projects fell short.

The biggest problem we've discovered is meeting your timeline. Pretzel Pillow has already developed an operating plan. We have sourced all materials, secured production space in downtown Los Angeles, calculated deliverables and estimated shipping. We're ready to hit the ground running.

We also understand that things go wrong, some of which are completely out of our control, so we've allotted time in our delivery schedule for unforeseen circumstances. By studying other successful, as well as failed campaigns, we feel we're prepared to deliver our product in an efficient, timely manner. It is our responsibility to meet the needs of our customers and provide them with the best customer service possible. This is more than just a fund raiser, it's the first step in creating a lasting relationship with our customers.
