About

"If you feel the stress and tension in the neck, you will appreciate the Dollop Pillow. Enjoy!" Alberto Kim, the founder of Dollop.

  "Feeling like your head & neck could be supported better while you sleep? Tossing and turning all night long?" We know why you feel this way. Please scroll down to find out how we built a pillow that fits you oh-so-perfectly.

Conventional Square Pillow vs. Dollop Pillow - You can breathe better & snore less!

We designed the world's first pillow that can be 100% customizable to your unique body type. Adaptable to any sleep position or any posture, you will always find the perfect fit. You will experience the super-fast recovery from physical and mental stress as sleep is reinvented- therapeutic as well as rejuvenating.

ERGONOMIC - Customizable with 3 adjustable pads, it will be expertly tailored to ensure maximum comfort for any and all sleeping positions. Its proven contour design perfectly supports and aligns your head, neck, shoulder, and back. You will fall asleep faster and deeper. 

SUPER PLUSH - Made with patent-pending, super plush,  Marshmallow Foam, it truly feels just like the extension of your skin. The foam is breathable and very natural to the touch. It's the perfect material that combines breathability with support.

"Every one of us is beautiful, built with a unique body type; but, why are we all using a rectangular pillow filled with cotton or fake cotton fillers or one-size-fits-all ergonomic pillow?" This epiphany soon became my passion to build Dollop Pillow.

I am built with a bigger head and a longer neck. My wife has a small figure with a relatively narrow shoulder. But why do we share the same pillows? I figured it's non-sense. Don't you think so?

 Don't you feel your posture is better in the morning than at night? It's due to physical and mental stress. It could be manifestations of your emotional status. Sleeping in a good posture helps you recover and recharge. Stabilizing the head and neck reduces sleep disruptions. 

Building a new concept is a tough journey; not because we doubted ourselves, but the journey seemed to consist of one epiphany after another. In the journey of making Dollop Pillow, we discovered that the pillow and bedding industry never improved nor invented due to the following reasons:

  • Cheaper & Easier to manufacture & distribute ONE design for 100 years
  • Why innovate when customers never ask for a change? 

What is one of the most common sleep problems? Most people say their mattress — or so we thought. We conducted months of sleep testing to understand what made fitful sleepers toss and turn. Once we stabilized head & neck posture, we discovered that sleep posture was the real culprit. Uncomfortable resting place is what really causes people to toss, turn, and throw off their overall sleep quality. Here is our solution: 

Dollop Pillow is engineered for all mankind. By utilizing 2 head blocks and a 1-inch booster, you will easily find the perfect fit - in a matter of minutes. First, start with a bare-bone Dollop Pillow - the one that supports like a hammock while relieving gravity on your precious crown. Then, play with blocks. Sounds complicated? We illustrated the process below: 

 You will most likely find one fits most dominantly. However, you can essentially customize the fit day by day. It is awesome because Dollop Pillow grows with you as your posture improves. How?

You want a pillow that’s soft, but also supportive. Now you don’t have to pick one or the other. Its unique contoured design allows for better neck alignment and keeps the weight of the head and neck evenly distributed. What's the point of customizing if not built ergonomic, huh? 

For side sleepers, we carved every inch of the Marshmallow foam precisely as if we printed the cheeks, cheekbones, & ears right on the pillow. Our ergonomic design is perfected with this marshmallow foam, and here is the proof:

You want a pillow that’s super-plush & comforting but also long-lasting. Now you don’t have to pick one or the other. Imagine the comfort from the patent-pending Marshmallow foam. It's uniquely built like you. The foam is breathable and very natural to the touch. It's the perfect material that combines comfort with support.

Key factors we considered and customized in the Marshmallow foam:

  • Feels Natural to the Touch - Feels like your own cheeks, maybe butt cheeks!
  • Overall weight of the pillow -Feels as natural as it can be. 
  • Ability to distribute the body weight evenly - Prevents Tossing & Turning.
  • Moisture Wicking and Breathability - Sleeps Cool at night 
  • Thermal Resistance - Sleeps Cool at night 
  • 100% Pure Ingredient and High Density (don't compare it to low-density cheap memory foam) - Anti-Bacterial & Anti-Microbial

 Bring Your Dollop Everywhere

Dollop's Marshmallow memory foam is too good to be true! You can essentially carry this everywhere. Bring it to your next camping trip!

Hey, Dollop Pillow fits into a small bag!

KEEP YOUR COOL WHILE YOU SLEEP - The pillow cover is breathable. It increases airflow so you’re always sleeping cool - less sweating but more sleeping. 

EXTENSION OF YOUR SKIN - The pillow cover is stretchy. It feels like the extension of your skin; therefore, it feels very natural to your skin - foreheads, cheeks, necks, hands, and arms or wherever it touches and embraces. Of course, machine washable, and easily manageable. 

WATER-PROOF - We are talking about the inner cover. This pillow cover is water-proof, so you may sweat and drool while you sleep. It acts as the barrier between the outside world and the pillow body, itself. When properly protected, it increases the lifespan of the pillow, and it prevents dust mites, bed bugs, and more. Of course, machine washable, and easily manageable.

Thank you for your interest in Dollop Pillow! I would love to tell you a little story.

A journey or a challenge, designing the Dollop Pillow- the world's first personalizable pillow- started two years ago. Personally, I was in a dark place. At work, my workload was heavy and toxic to my body. I failed to sleep on time during the week and failed to take proper rest on weekends. Very stressful.

The biggest agony of all was to rest my exhausted neck and head on a pillow that did not fit my unique body type. I could not find ONE comfortable sleep position; therefore, I tossed and turned all night long. I was even diagnosed with restless leg syndromes and anxiety. After months of struggle, I realized I sleep better when I customize my pillows with a couple of towels and blankets. So, I started experimenting with many options and shapes. I started to sleep better, wake up refreshed, and have more energy overall. This small success changed my life. I quitted 9-5 job, jumping into an entrepreneur world :) 

I founded a brand for sleep solutions with the pillow being the first product of the brand. I named it DOLLOP - Little Things Make Big Things Happen- as each and every item will rock your sleep :) 

Experimenting with my dad, mom, sister, and close friends, I created prototypes after prototypes, raising more than $10,000 on a Korean crowdfunding website (www.Wadiz.kr) in the process. We beta-tested with 300 customers and made 5 iterations. After a year of designing a pillow, alone, I become a master in the art of sleep. I think I have created something amazing here. It's the item in this very box right now. 

A pillow that finally fits your head and neck. Play with it for a few nights. Personalize it to your unique body type. Once you find the sweet spot, you will sleep like a baby again. Guaranteed. I know you will love it because it's proven with 500 beta-testers before you.

Snooze with superior support. The level of customization of the dollop pillow is to provide optimal neck support while comfortably cradling your head, so it supports you, not your chiropractor’s BMW.

Please help us become one of the best pillows in the world. Spread the word for me. Let the world know how comfortably fits your body and help you have the best dream ever. I would love to help hundreds of thousands of people just like us. Again, Thank you for your interest in Dollop Pillow. Any questions and concerns? Please let us know in the comments. Cheers!

Why Kickstarter?

Dollop encourages us to experiment and try new things. We wanted to launch this controversial design to a community that would appreciate the design work and provides us with the kind of feedback that would help us bring a new product to the market.

This Kickstarter is our opportunity to get honest feedback on a unique new design (just like your own unique body type).


Risks and challenges

Our challenges were mostly in developing the concept of the pillow, itself. We started from little questions, "why pillow never fit us and why there is no such offering in the marketplace?" We focused on 3 features:

1. Custom-fit Dollop Pillow to your own unique body types
2. Re-imagining the memory foam, using the completely different ingredients to deliver the super plush feeling while supporting the head and neck!
3. Clean, easily manageable, waterproof pillow covers

In terms of production, we have already beta-tested with 100 people. We are good! We just need to get ourselves ready for mass-production and to come closer to Kickstarter backers.
