FaceCradle founder David Scrimshaw was on a long flight with his partner Roz, who was struggling to find a comfortable sleeping position. The best she could do in the confined space was lean forward with her head braced in her hands and elbows resting on her knees. “If only something could hold my head for me!” With more than 20 years of award-winning design experience, Scrimshaw was the right person to come up with the “something.” The result is FaceCradle, a radical departure from the typical U-shape around-the-neck travel pillow.
“Looking like a normal U pillow, FaceCradle has an internal frame that opens out and transforms the pillow,” Scrimshaw explains. “The memory foam pillow and harness attachment replace your hands and provide a ‘massage table’ feeling around your face.”
The FaceCradle provides three comfort modes: dozing, power nap and deep sleep. Made from NASA-designed polyurethane memory foam, the pillow contours itself to your face and body, and always returns to its original shape after use. The material is naturally hypoallergenic.
