Pillow EaseOUR STORY
Why another pillow you may ask? We are not in the bedding industry, but know sleep is important. And, if you are looking at our product, we share a common enemy - sleepless nights!
I'm Gerry Peck, and I'm the founder of PillowEase®. I developed the unique patented design of the pillow for 2 reasons. The first is, I used to be a workaholic, working too much and not taking care of myself. One of the results of that lifestyle for me was almost debilitating lower back pain. To help with this I would sleep with a pillow under my knees. For me, when I would switch from my back to my side, trying to easily adjust the pillow from under to between my knees resulted in sheets getting caught to where I'd have to shake them out to get them to lay right. Shaking out sheets while on your side in the middle of the night while half asleep just doesn't bode well for getting back to sleep easily. So I had an idea: What if I could come up with a design for a pillow that provided less "friction", less catch of the sheet, while switching from back to side, and side to back. From that idea was borne PillowEase®. After lots of trial and error, friends, family and focus group testing, production fits and starts (not the least of which was supply chain issues of the past 2 years), PillowEase is now ready for you! While it's initial purpose was to help people who like to sleep with a pillow under or between their knees, it has really grown into something with a much greater purpose: to help people with chronic pain conditions find relief. From knees and hips, legs and necks, PillowEase® has proven time and time again that by taking the slightest pressure off of a bothersome joint, meaningful relief can be experienced. And it is also a great pillow for side sleepers. Whether between your knees or under your head (no face blocking!), it just works. It's also great if your partner snores, you can put your arm under one of the wings and it will cover that ear. Of course a foam ear plug in one or both ears is a good additive solution!
We are passionate about preserving the spirit and craftsmanship of local entrepreneurs and artisans, and protecting our environment by using eco-friendly materials as much as possible. Our end goal is to produce goods that are better for people, animals, and the earth. Our pillows are made in the USA and are sewn and stuffed by hand. Our fill is made of 100% upcycled plastic bottles, broken down to resemble a cotton fibre. It’s very soft, cool and keeps its shape! Our covers are made of 100% cotton Sateen, and are soft and smooth to the touch. We have little wasted space in our packaging, and when possible shrink the pillow down so we can use a smaller box. We fervently believe in leaving as small a footprint as possible, to help preserve our environment so our children and our children’s children have it to enjoy.
We are both entrepreneurs, and it’s our dream to create products that help people, and can be enjoyed. We are dedicated to creating and providing something that can help you have a better quality of rest, and as a result, a better quality of life for yourself and your family.
We are grateful for your purchase, and thank you for trusting us!
