Pillow & Pockets

Next time you’re at the beach or pool, or just sunbathing on the deck, use a towel that’s lounge-worthy. The Tillow is a multi-functional beach towel with a built-in pillow, plus pockets to keep your valuables safe from the elements. For Maker Katie Everds, going to the beach meant worrying about her stuff every time she left her towel. And to get comfortable, she’d bunch sand into the shape of a pillow. That’s why she created the Tillow. The contoured foam pillow is removable, with a washable liner that resists water and mildew. And the hidden pockets store your keys, wallet, sunscreen, or any other small items. One pocket even has a touchscreen window that lets you use your phone while it’s protected. Pull up a towel and relax with a ready-made spot for your head and for your essentials.

    I live at the beach and love this! What is the length of the towel?

    @Beth Hi Beth!! The towel is 65" long and 35" wide. So slightly larger than the traditional beach towel size :)

    @Katie 5'5" isn't long enough for me... wish it was! I was ready to order, but I'm 5'9" and can't imagine a beach towel my feet hang off of. My first thought when I saw the pic was "that towel looks awfully short!" so looked for the question and sure enough, I wasn't the only one. So... just some feedback I guess.

    @Donna I agree Donna. I am 5'9" also and the towel is too short. This is a great idea, love the pillow and the pocket, just make it longer please.

    @Sharon @Donna Thank you for the feedback! We actually did a survey prior to production and the majority said they prefer their "toes in the sand" when laying out at the beach. So this was the reason for the size we chose :) Thank you again for taking the time to comment and your interest in the Tillow!

    What a brilliant idea. I live in Florida and you always run the risk of someone stealing your stuff unless you wear all your valuables in the water. The clear window for access to touch screen phone is a win, win.

    @Don Hi Don! Yes, you just take out the pillow and throw the Tillow, pockets and all, in the wash! The pillow comes with a water & mildew-resistant lining to protect the pillow. That lining can also be washed, if desired.

    Yes, Katie, when spoke of piling up sand, I instantly wanted one of yr Tillows. An inspired idea. How thick (high) is the foam pillow?

    @Cameron Hi Cameron! Thank you for your kind words! The pillow is contoured so its lowest height is 2.5" and the highest height is 3". I hope you enjoy yours!
