Our Story

The Founder

A lifetime ago, before founding The Hugger Pillow, I spent 15 years as a Graphic Designer and have spent the last 3 years as a Software Engineer. Although my career has been deeply rooted in design and engineering, my real passion is sleep. Good sleep.

The Hugger Pillow Journey Begins

Growing up, I could never sleep unless I was hugging a body pillow. Back then, I didn’t even know what a body pillow was, so my mum made a cylinder-shaped pillow, stuffed with filling, and I cherished it for almost 15 years. As the years passed and my beloved pillow began to fall apart, I discovered the world of body pillows but couldn't find the perfect one for myself. That's when I realised it was time to create my own. Utilising all my design skills and my passion for good sleep, I embarked on a journey to design The Hugger Pillow.

Curious about why I couldn't sleep without hugging a pillow, I began my research and found that I was not alone – many people need the comfort of hugging a pillow to drift off to sleep. This realisation fueled my desire to share the experience and benefits of hugging a pillow with the world. The Hugger Pillow is customisable, reflecting my commitment to thinking about the people using it. I want everyone to enjoy the comfort, better sleep, and emotional benefits that come from hugging a pillow, just as I have for so many years.

Designed in Australia

At The Hugger Pillow, we take pride in our meticulous design process behind each pillow. Working closely with a trusted manufacturer, we have developed the various components that make up The Hugger Pillow to ensure it meets the highest standards of comfort and support.

Customisable Inner Pillow

The inner pillow is designed with a zipper, allowing you to adjust the amount of filling to perfectly match your comfort needs. Whether you prefer a firmer or softer hug, you can tailor the pillow to your liking, ensuring a personalised sleep experience.

Bamboo/Polyester Pillow Cover

Understanding the hot and often sweaty nights in Australia, we specifically designed a bamboo/polyester pillow cover that is sweat-resistant, removable, and washable. This cover not only protects the inner pillow but also enhances your comfort by keeping you cool and dry throughout the night. You can even remove the filling and wash the inner pillow, ensuring every part of The Hugger Pillow is fresh and clean.

Unique Graphic Designs

As a former graphic designer, I personally create each graphic that adorns our pillow covers. Every design is inspired by my personal experiences and influences growing up. Each season, we release new designs to keep your sleep environment fresh and exciting, ensuring that your Hugger Pillow is not only comfortable but also a stylish addition to your bedroom.

By focusing on these key elements, we ensure that every Hugger Pillow embodies quality and creativity, providing you with a product that is as unique as it is comfortable.

Our Commitment

At The Hugger Pillow, we are committed to providing our customers with the best possible sleep experience. We believe that a good night's sleep is essential for overall well-being, and our mission is to help you achieve that through our carefully designed and crafted pillows.
