Focus on an Economic Player

With their concept of millet-filled pillows, Assia Beksultanova and Vincent Le Gal are revolutionizing your nights! Originally from Champlon, these two ambitious entrepreneurs are not just selling you dreams...

Where did the idea for millet pillows come from?

The idea was born during our marketing studies at IHECN where we had to "set up" a business. The pillow project sprouted from our desire to create an ideal sleeping aid for a restful night. And why millet? Because it is a tiny cereal that you do not feel and that perfectly conforms to the morphology. We have made several prototype pillows that we have had tested by people suffering from cervical issues and the feedback has been positive. We have also counted on the advice of Vincent's father, who is an osteopath. From all this, the "Millet Pillow" was born.

From Millet Pillow, you then moved on to Garnillet?

Yes, because we have expanded our range with extra-large versions, nursing cushions, travel pillows...

What are the qualities of such a pillow?

Its first quality is to be totally ergonomic. The fact of being able to add or remove millet husks at will allows for an adaptation perfectly suited to the morphology of the person. It is also an ideal pillow for people with runny noses, as it allows for complete relaxation of muscular tensions. It is hypoallergenic and also retains heat, providing a sensation of coolness in summer and warmth in winter. Finally, with proper care, its lifespan is much longer than a classic pillow.

How and where are your products made?

For the sewing part of the covers, we work with a sheltered work company, Axedis. The fabric is organic, which is also very important for allergies. The stuffing of the pillows and their packaging is done by us, by hand. The millet husks are also organic and we do not get them from France. Unfortunately, we have not found a source of organic millet cultivation in Belgium. These two characteristics make our product eco-responsible.

How can one purchase your products?

Via the website But do not hesitate to call us if you need advice or have any questions. For the inhabitants of the commune of Tenneville, we deliver directly to your home, which saves on delivery fees but also allows us to meet our customers and provide them with explanations over a drink. The price includes a refill of millet and is higher than classic pillows but it is a real investment in good sleep! Since the customer's investment is significant, we offer a 30-day trial period. After this period, if the customer is not satisfied, they are fully refunded without commitment.
