Our Pakapillow Story



My name is Chahé (a.k.a. Chad Eric Soderholm).  

In my previous business I travelled quite often. Unfortunately I couldn't travel with my favorite contoured memory foam pillow I usually slept on at home.  The pillows the airlines gave out were paper thin and the u-shaped neck brace pillows you find in airport shops never really worked for me.

A few years ago, I had a pleasure of directing and producing videos for top bedding company. Through that association, I got some complementary bedding and extra foam pillows to play with.  Being an inventor at heart, I started cutting out the extra foam and shaping it into a travel pillow. I experimented with various designs and finally came up with an ideal design that was compact and versatile enough to have with me at all times. Not only was it made from the comfortable foam cushion which was contoured to cradle the head and neck, I also made an earhole!  It may seem like an unusual feature, but my ears could finally feel cramp-free comfort especially with the headphones on. 

We are proud to introduce the Pakapillow - the Compact Travel Pillow versatile enough to experience comfort anywhere you go!

Thank you for your interest and support,

Chahé and the Pakapillow team
