Ostrich Pillow back in 2012 launched a highly successful kickstarter campaign on the original (see image below) that catapulted the brand to worldwide fame. Not content with success in the travel space, their recent focus on solution that support mindfullness has raised the profile of the brand. Whilst their heritage is in travel - today OP has an altogether more immersive and holistic story..

With a product mix that has recently expanded from their core travel offer - to solutions that support sleep, body (including bamboo compression socks, heat-bag, neck wrap) and disconnection (digital detox phone case, self care journal, candles and more).
From 2012 Ostrich Pillow have been innovating in the design, manufacture and marketing of solutions with a genuine USP.
