What is a Secret Pillow?
A Secret Pillow is a charming cushion that unfolds into a blanket. It originates from the world of quilting and is also known as a quillow.
Secret Pillows are a craft item made by women in India who face social and economic challenges. The money they earn through the making and selling of Secret Pillows enables them to pay for their child's education, food, medicine and other essentials. The women are affiliated to an NGO or charity who provide a safe space in which they come together to receive training, support, and materials to produce Secret Pillows. These groups of women are called Maker Networks and Secret Projects currently works with Maker Networks in six Indian states.
Secret Pillows are multi-functional and a fantastic addition to any chair, sofa, bed or any space you want to make more comfortable, cosy and colourful.
Thanks to the support of law firm Hogan Lovells, we are proud to be able to say that as of May 2018, our Secret Pillow is a registered trademark.
