Originally the wrong (but equally adorable) pillow was sent. The mix up was corrected immediately and smoothly. Now I have a really cute quality pillow. The craftsmanship is remarkable and worth the money.

About

Say what everyone else is thinking.

I started my company on my lunch break from work, listing some left over pillows that I had made over the holidays as gifts. In January of 2009, Obama was being inaugurated, and in the excitement, I made a pillow based on his campaign mantra that said, "Yes we can." I had hit a nerve, and my company was on the map. Within four months, Etsy asked me to be their featured seller (read the interview here: http://www.etsy.com/featured_seller.php?featured_user_id=6788960), and by the end of the year I had expanded into wholesale and was showing at New York International Gift Fair (now called NY NOW).

We specialize in pillows that feature sassy phrases that say what everyone else is thinking. Striking a delicate balance between being direct and honest, while still being motivational has been the signature of our brand personality.

Just over 6 years later, in addition to our Etsy shop, we sell to over 550 retailers throughout the USA, as well as some of the most prestigious department stores around the world. Our pillows have been featured in dozens of publications including House Beautiful, Coastal Living, Real Simple, Shape, Self, The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Apartment Therapy, Cosmopolitan, Fitness, HBO Girls and the Today show.

I work with a small team of incredibly talented and fun people who help me with manufacturing in our own factory space in Brooklyn NY, using a process that stays true to our original handcrafted methods from our early days. Letters are cut out using a die cutting machine, and arranged on the pillow base one by one with a ruler. Then each letter is stitched down individually.

We have committed ourselves to working exclusively with eco-friendly materials. Our felt and pillow inserts are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles (PET containers). 1lb of fiber represents 10 bottles that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill, so each pillow is the equivalent to 10-60 bottles (depending on size). We also work with a hemp and organic cotton canvas material that is sustainable, biodegradable, and milled using the highest social responsibility standards.
