First of all, care and craftsmanship. All of our pillows and pillowcases are made by hand from start to finish. This ensures that every single pillow is of the highest quality and attention to detail is second to none.

But what about the materials, and the process? Well there is a lot to it! Here’s the short answer…

The Mono Pillow consists of two main components:

  • The pillow itself and the pillowcase
  • A total of 23 components are assembled in a 39 step process
Mono Pillow Components and Steps

Read on for the full list of parts and processes that make the Mono Pillow what it is, a truly outstanding pillow that focuses on one thing only, the wellbeing of your ears!

The pillow has the following components:
  • Front Face (this is the side that you sleep on)
  • Back Face (the other side of the pillow)
  • Inner Ring (yup, this is where your ear goes)
  • Outer Edge (to give the pillow a nice and even elevation)
  • Piping (2x)
  • Hidden Zipper
  • Inner Flap (to stop the filling from catching in the zipper)
  • Filling
  • Lots and Lots of Thread (For assembling the pillow and the embroidery of the logo)
  • Regulatory Label
  • Oeko-Tex Label
  • Care Label

So there you have 13 components just for the pillow alone! Let’s now move on to the pillowcase (it will get a little easier, we promise).

The pillowcase is made up of the following components:
  • Front Face (this is the side that you sleep on)
  • Back Face (the other side of the pillow)
  • Inner Ring
  • Outer Edge
  • Piping (2x)
  • Outer Zipper (this runs alongside the outer edge of the pillowcase)
  • Thread (assembly and embroidery of the logo)
  • Oeko-Tex Label
  • Care Label

There is the list of things that go into the pillowcase, a further 10 components!

Altogether 23 different parts go into the complete assembly of a pillow. We are very proud that all of these are carefully put together by hand following a process consisting of even more steps than the number of components. Read on to find out more about the process, if you like detail!

How it all comes together (The process)

The pillow

We start with the fabrics and cut them into the correct shapes and sizes (in case you’re wondering, it’s a lovely 233 thread count cotton fabric):

  • Inner Ring
  • Outer Edge
  • Front Face
  • Back Face
  • Inner Flap

Before we can start assembling the pillow we need to add the embroidery:

  • Embroidery of the logo

 

Ok, now we are ready to start assembling the pillow, so here it goes:

  • Create the inner ring
  • Create the outer edge
  • Sew on the piping to one of the faces
  • Sew on the piping to the other face
  • Attach the outer edge to one of the faces
  • Attach the inner flap to the other face
  • Attach one side of the hidden zipper to the same face
  • Add the regulatory label
  • Add the care label
  • Add the Oeko-Tex label
  • Attach the inner ring to one of the faces
  • Attach the inner ring to the other face
  • Join the outer edge with the other face (this is the most difficult step and only select members of our team can do it)
  • Measure and add the filling

Those are the 20 steps required to create our lovely pillow but we are far from done at this point, as we still need a fitting pillowcase! So, let’s crack on

The pillowcase

Again, we start with the fabrics and cut them into the correct shapes and sizes (this time it’s an even better, 400 thread count luxury cotton fabric):

  • Inner ring
  • Outer edge
  • Front face
  • Back face
  • Inner flap

 

Before we can start assembling the pillowcase we need to add the embroidery here as well:

  • Embroidery of the logo

Here we go again, let’s now assemble the pillowcase:

  • Create the inner ring
  • Create the outer edge
  • Attach one side of the zipper to the outer edge
  • Sew on the piping to one of the faces
  • Attach the other side of the zipper to the same face (this has to be very carefully aligned)
  • Sew on the piping to the other face
  • Attach the outer edge with the non-zip side to this (or ‘to the same face’) face
  • Add the care label
  • Add the Oeko-Tex label
  • Attach the inner ring to one of the faces
  • Attach the inner ring to the other face
  • Join the outer edge with the other face 
  • Put the pillow on the pillowcase

These final 19 steps give us the Mono Pillow as we know it, a wonderful pillow with an ear hole in a luxury finish!

So there you have it, the 23 components and 39 steps we use to create our pillows! We hope that this article provides some insight into the complexity required to make our pillow.
