Cédric Waldburger: A homeless nomadic traveller

Which better beta tester than a modern-day nomad who takes around 100 flights per year and he spends an average of 3.7 days in each location? If LOOP works for him, it will work for anybody! Take a look to this beta testing on the go! 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to its microbeads filling that smoothly adapt to your head size and facial features, OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP blocks out 99,9% of light and any other visual stimuli.

  

Feel you need more isolation? No problem: OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP has been designed so that you can use it together with your headphones, to complement visual blackout with noise cancelling.

  

OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP’s compact design will take up no space in your bag. But let’s be honest, such a cool eye pillow must be shown off! That’s why we conceived it so that you can easily carry it on you. Thanks to its lightness and softness, OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP can be worn in many different stylish ways. 

 


OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP adapts to the great majority of head sizes and physiognomies. Irrespective of your facial features, it’ll perfectly accommodate to them thanks its ergonomic design and materiality, cocooning your head with the cozy comfort of a pillow.

  

Two are the secrets behind OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP’s high-quality comfort and we’re happy to reveal them: the microbeads core (a high performance material that we have used in previous napping pillow models, to outstanding results) and the super smooth and discreet hook-and-loop fastener.

   

We know all too well how tough nomadic lifestyles are, that’s why we’ve made OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP light and compact. Travel light, live smart. 

   

 

 

 

We initiated the Napping Revolution in 2012 on Kickstarter with our first product, the OSTRICH PILLOW ORIGINAL. That landslide campaign went viral on global media and the rest is history. Since then we've created a whole family of napping products: the commute-friendly LIGHT and the discreet MINI models, also to great Kickstarter and public acclaim; as well as the GO version, a comfy neck pillow for stylish travelers.

Listening to our community of hardcore nappers has been our single most inspiring source of new ideas. We pay a lot of attention to their requests, which recently were pointing towards a more compact and easy to carry pillow that delivers a relaxing experience to the eyes, without compromising on our high standard of design. That’s why we created OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP, the most stylish eye pillow providing you a cocoon to disconnect and rest in the blink of an eye, wherever you want, whenever you want. We're super excited to bring OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP to you and can't wait to make it a reality thanks to your support.

Risks and challenges

Perfection and outstanding levels of customer service are at the core of our values and we like being frank with our fans and supporters.

OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP is a new product and, like in all our previous Kickstarter campaigns, you will be the first to receive it. When you see OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP in retail, you must show off to your friends you made this product possible.
As you may know, we are a small business deeply committed to a top-notch product development and in all the products we have crowdfunded, we pay attention to every single detail. For us, quality of the product comes above everything else. OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP is not an exception to this ethos.

Moving from prototype to production brings challenges at times. We have done our best to minimise the possibility of ugly bumps on the road by advancing a great deal in the manufacturing preparation. We have a ready-to-start manufacturing partner, with all fabric suppliers lined up, but incidents are sometimes inevitable and our priority is to deliver a top quality product to our backers even if it may take a bit of patience. We want to be absolutely honest and transparent: this is our 7th campaign and the experience we’ve amassed over the years is an advantage.

Of course some international customs, certification, logistic delays, and Force Majeure may occasionally show their ugly head. However, rest assured we will be working full throttle to avoid any issues on our end.

SHIPMENTS
OSTRICH PILLOW LOOP is worldwide available: we will deliver it to every single location. Please, notice the shipping cost could vary by country.

Backers will be responsible for applicable tariffs and customs fees.

Please support us in avoiding delivery delays by providing us your full daytime delivery address in English, together with your telephone number for our courier, as soon as you receive our survey at the end of our project. Please keep in mind the cut off point for all shipment is within 2 months of the survey. Regrettably we will not be able to fulfill deliveries post this period. Estimated shipment June 2018.

Do stay in touch with us; we love hearing from you and need you every step of the way, without you none of this would be possible.
