  • Tapered Eye Mask: Block out unwanted light over your eyes when sleeping with the low profile tapered design 
  • Poly/Spandex Fabric: Fit almost every head size with the stretchy spandex exterior fabric

Traditional travel pillows are bulky and take up far too much precious space in your luggage. The Voyage Pillow is designed to allow you to maximize the available space within your luggage when packing either a carry-on or checked bag.

Everyone has a different go to sleeping position when traveling. The Voyage Pillow is able to adapt to your preferred sleeping position while allowing for flexibility to shift around and change positions with ease without the pillow slipping or falling out of place.

Place the Voyage Pillow over your eyes, on the side of your head, around your neck, under your chin, around your hand, behind your back, between your legs, or whatever else might work so you can get the best sleep possible!

Never lose the Voyage Pillow on the go, easily drop is around your neck when you wake up from a nap and dash off to board the plane.

When you are stuck with that dreaded two hour delay on your connecting flight - take out the Voyage Pillow, sprawl out, and take a nap in the terminal.

 

 

One of the main goals when I was developing the Voyage Pillow was to find fabrics and materials that felt amazing to the touch, complimented the functional design, and looked great as a final product. After testing and experimenting with different fabrics and combinations, the perfect balance of these attributes was found.  

The Voyage Pillow features a polyester/spandex blended fabric exterior for flexibility and comfort in any sleeping situation. This allows for the pillow to comfortably fit almost every head shape - large or small. The heather fabric design adds a touch of style and depth to each colorway available.

The interior is finished with the softest plush fabric for a gentle feel against your skin while your sleep. The solid colors create a visually appealing two tone design.

Lastly thousands of microbeads fill the Voyage Pillow to perfect sculpt to your unique sleep position. This construction allows the pillow to adjust to the pressure of being used while snapping back to retain it's shape at the end of that perfect nap.

 A few key influencers have been taking the Voyage Pillow on their trips and can't get enough!

 

 

 

 

 

After years of traveling all around the world to New York, Paris, Stockholm, San Francisco, Montreal, Dominican Republic, Lake Tahoe, Chile, New Zealand, and more - I was absolutely hooked on traveling but hated actually getting to the location and losing a day from horrible sleep on the plane. I became determined to find a better solution for sleeping on the go.

I found that traditional travel pillows on the market were bulky and designed for only sleeping in one particular position. So in May of 2016, I began sketching designs, cutting up pillows, and sewing my own creations. Once I had developed my initial prototype I began looking for a manufacturing partner to bring the Voyage Pillow to life.

Different sample designs allowed me to test various fabrics, pillow densities, pillow fill materials, size, shape, and more. I spent the next four months working closely with a leading travel pillow manufacturer tweaking the design until it was absolutely perfect.

Once the final design was chosen I hopped back on planes, trains, buses, and taxis to put in some miles on testing the final pre-production design. On these trips I began studying airport displays to develop eye-catch packaging and picturing the Voyage Pillow on their shelves!

Lastly I wanted the final delivery of the Voyage Pillows to our backers to be just as beautiful with custom poly mailers!

Risks and challenges

Sondre Travel has been working hard over the past months to ensure this Kickstarter campaign runs smoothly. Relationships have been built with manufacturing partners to bring the Voyage Pillow to life and into your hands once the campaign is complete.

However, simply running a business can come with unforeseen circumstances and risks. Production and logistic issues can arise during these processes, and we guarantee to remain transparent if any potential issues may affect the launch of the product.

Our pre-production samples have met our beta tester quality standards and pledge to maintain this quality for the final finished product delivered to you.
