Although we didn’t know it at the time, our company was born the day we made our first pillow using a basic sewing machine at the dining room table. It was not our intention to launch a company that day, we were just trying to make the perfect pillow for our own use. We quickly discovered that our struggle to find the right pillow was a common one, and all of the sudden there was a demand for us to make more of these pillows for our friends and family members. Once we brought our pillows into our local mattress stores, it was clear that we were on to something, and all of the sudden Drift was born.
From that day, we have grown significantly. We went through countless prototypes to find the perfect fill, curvature, and fabric for our pillow. We ramped up production to get our pillow into more people’s hands, and began making pillow cases and other versions of our pillow (our travel pillow is amazing, btw!).
As our product catalog started expanding, and our name was getting out there, we noticed that others in the industry went by similar names. Right away we realized that we needed to find our own identity. Our pillow was so special and unique that we felt our name needed to be as well. We wanted our name to reflect that our idea was fresh, and outside of the conventional. We also wanted our customers to know that our company, at it's core, was a sweet and happy place. Thus, Honeydew was born, and it fit us like a glove, just right.
Some things, however, have not changed. We are still the same family business we were when we started – no changes in ownership or team members. We are still making all of our products by hand, in small batches, in Southern California. We are still committed to making the best pillows in the world, no matter what it takes.
We are very proud of where we have come, and very excited about where we are going. To all of you who have been with us from the beginning, thank you so much for your love and support. We could not have done it without you. We hope that you are as excited about this new adventure as we are. To those of you who are just learning about us now, thank you for taking a chance on a small family business. We just know that you are going to love your pillow, and we can’t wait to hear what you think.
As always, if there is anything that we can ever do to help, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you again, and welcome to the Honeydew family.
