I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Babs from Pillowbabble™.
How did you come up with the name for your company?
The Pillowbabble™ name was actually created years ago while chatting with my sister on the beach and professing our love for meaningful quotes and how they inspire, motivate, redirect, refocus, humor and enlighten our lives in one simple statement. We reserved the domain name for a possible future collection and then went on with our demanding lives for several years thinking that one day we would have more time to devote to it. Well, "tomorrow never comes, if you don't focus on today" we realized. A life changing moment inspired us to get stitching right away and not delay. We personally created, and built a bare bones wholesale website, (we are not exactly a "techy" duo) without prior knowledge, and training. It is pretty basic, but it seems to work well for us. Keep it simple... is the common thread we strive to live by. Simple is also our design direction when creating our collections. Since there are so many wonderful patterned pillows and shams out on the market, we feel a simple lumbar design in a solid organic hue with a quiet font gives the words the attention they deserve. We love how the rich and luxurious embroidery contrasts with the organic texture of the designer grade jute. We also feel the simple pillow design is the perfect layer to nestle in front of all of those wonderful print and patterned square shams with a punch of personality.
Of course, our love of the sea inspired The SeaWorthy Collection™. Therefore, we are so excited to offer a giveaway from that collection for "A Nantucket State of Mind" during this special time of year. The holidays are especially fun by the sea and this Pillowbabble™ is whimsical and festive in a Coral Red Hue with a fun shore loving babble stitched in SeaMist Thread. It is one of our favorites, a best seller, and a fan favorite on Pinterest too.
Where can we buy Pillowbabble™ pillows?
Pillowbabbles™ are currently available online via our Online Retailers. We do not have plans at this time to sell direct, we absolutely love working with our retailers and they are experts at what they do! Again, we like to keep it simple and concentrate our efforts on expanding into different collections. As we continue to grow, more and more retailers are finding us and our Pillowbabbles™ are popping up in wonderful boutiques across the country. Please let us know if you would like to see Pillowbabbles™ in a boutique near you.
Pillowbabble™has been kind enough to offer a giveaway! One of my lucky readers will win the Pillowbabble™pillow pictured below! It is one of my favorites!
So, how do you enter? Leave me a comment telling me what you are thankful for this holiday season!
I will be picking a winner on Friday, November 23, 2012....Black Friday!
Good Luck to all!
