About this project

My name is Ryan Christensen, and I am a designer in Washington State. For whatever reason, I have strong impulses to create objects, especially ones that are bizarre, colorful or illusory. You can see some of my other projects at steelplant.net. I also have a support page for the Kickstarter project here.

Awhile back I decided to make a pillowcase that looked like a plus size zippy full of cannabis. Days later I had several varieties. After getting huge smiles and great reactions from people, I realized how much fun they were to have around, so I decided to keep working on them.

Many factories, samples, and prototypes later, I have a pillowcase that is really looking and feeling the way I had envisioned. The printing is great and the material is just the right sheen. The black interior lining and pocket make the inside feel as nice as the outside, and helps them feel substantial.

 Go on, inspect the goods . . .

I need help getting this project any further. I have been working with a purse and handbag factory in China to produce this. I need another round of samples with a few image and design improvements. Once I get the samples where I want them I would like to do a production run. If you like the project, and want to be part of it, look at the pledge options!

The Giant Stash pillowcase is a great way to goof, casually come out of the closet,
or out a loved one at Christmas time.

I feel this is something that will make people laugh, smile and be happy. If you think so too, and want to help with the project, that would be wonderful!

• shoot higher resolution flower Image
• add detail to baggie sleeve zip lock area, add some blue to pink line
• explore zipper size and zipper pull options

Risks and challenges

Manufacture Quality: This can be a concern if you cannot be present during manufacture. That said, I would not be comfortable launching a Kickstarter if I didn't think that it was going to be on the mark. The manufacturer is a supplier for some highly rated sellers and what I have received from them is very tight.

Importing: There can always be surprises with this part, especially with fees, but I have some experience with this, and have not had an unresolvable issue to date.

Distribution: Depending on popularity, this could be a small or a huge job. I will do everything in my power to get you the goods on time. :)
