Founded in 2013, Twill’s mission is to give children in need a sense of warmth and inspiration through the comfort of a blanket. Why blankets? A child in need may be homeless, battling a life-threatening illness, or experiencing temporary hardship. Our 100% GOTS organic cotton, Twill Blankets help serve as a friend, security, a shoulder to cry on and something to hold onto during a thunderstorm. When life becomes difficult at an early age, it is challenging to find determination, inspiration and a sense of belonging. From an early diagnosis of cancer to being displaced by economic hardship, the internal struggle is the toughest battle we must win. The world will know that Twill will not let a child face these obstacles alone.
We give our customers the opportunity to help us provide such warmth and comfort to children needing it most. For every Twill Blanket sold, a small Twill Blanket will be given to a child in need of a little encouragement. The giving is done by our own team and wonderful organizations we call Blanket Buddies. Our 2from1 model is similar to how we are as people; after all, we are all cut from the same “cloth”.
“A Brother’s Blanket”
Twill’s story comes from a family that needed love, help, and inspiration more than ever. Fighting a complex mental health diagnosis, our brother fought his way through trying times. Not knowing the end result, everyday was a struggle to understand, to hold on, to live, to breathe, to eat, to sleep for our brother Casey. As a family, we didn’t know what each day would bring. One day would be ‘good’ and the next would be ‘bad’. Our family provided a sense of warmth, love, motivation … a blanket. And then we saw “it”. Casey began to develop will power, the kind of power that could lift a car or bend a spoon with the mind. He slowly improved each day with a better sense of conviction and willingness to be with his family. It was like watching a grass root grow through a concrete sidewalk. Who knew such a beautiful thing could be grown from dark days with no sun. Casey found his way and his story and inspiration is embedded into our family owned company. Where there’s a Twill, there’s a way.

Risks and challenges
Every start-up has initial obstacles and delays in the early going of development. We patiently researched and developed our product and process of fulfillment for one year. We currently are taking pre-orders for our blankets through our online store, events and wholesale accounts.
A main challenge we currently have is variety of color and sizes. We currently have one size and color blanket available to the market. We want to perfect the product and process first before we take on any other revenue streams. With a fully-backed campaign and potential virality of our mission we will be able to invest in a variety of our product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
