Paris Match - Belgian Excellence - Edition of the week of June 8 to 14, 2023

Garnillet: An Ergonomic Journey into the World of Pillows

Assia and Vincent, two young Belgians, are the co-founders behind the soon-to-be-renowned start-up, Garnillet. Focused on creating sleep accessories such as ergonomic pillows, travel pillows, nursing cushions, and many other products, this company promises optimal comfort for everyone.

The Power of Millet: A Tradition Reinvented

After extensive research on the most suitable materials, the duo chose millet husks, a durable husk that ensures comfort while being eco-friendly. Unlike other husks, such as buckwheat or spelt, millet has the advantage of being small (about 0.10 mm), making it soft and adaptable. Additionally, being naturally grown, it has anti-mite and thermoregulatory properties.

The Personal Touch: The Custom-Made Pillow

What makes Garnillet products unique is their ability to adapt to each individual. Indeed, the company offers 100% customizable pillows, ranging from adding millet to adjust the desired height, providing tailor-made personalization. This attention to detail has earned the company several awards for its innovation and commitment to comfort and sustainability.

A Societal Commitment: Inclusion through Manufacturing

Beyond focusing on their customers' well-being, Assia and Vincent also emphasize the well-being of the community. They have chosen to collaborate with an adapted company, employing people who have had work accidents or were born with disabilities. This initiative highlights their commitment to supporting and integrating all members of society into their entrepreneurial vision.
