Are you a chronic over-packer? Do you fill your bags to capacity, only to get to the counter and find they surpass the weight limit? If so, the Cosy Pillow Collection was created with you in mind.

The iconic duo

Established in 2022, the Cosy Collection was designed by mother and daughter business and marketing duo Andrea O’Neal and Chelsea O’Neal. The New Jersey natives wanted to come up with a solution that would address common packing dilemmas in comfort and style.

“When traveling, we realized that pillows fly for free,” said the entrepreneurs in an interview with Travel Noire. “Our innovative pillow bag design allows you to stuff it with clothes and gives you extra storage with no baggage fees when you fly.”

The new collection

The Cosy Pillow Collection consists of the Cosy Carry-on Pillow bag with blanket and the Cosy NAB (neck and bag) pillow. Each carries a good amount of clothing, making them the perfect solution for travelers who prefer to avoid checking luggage when flying.

Airlines losing passengers’ luggage has become a serious issue with U.S. airlines being some of the biggest culprits.

In April of this year alone, U.S. airlines had more than 220,000 instances of lost, damaged, or delayed checked luggage–a 135% increase from last year’s figures.

Thus, many travelers are now opting to bring carry-on luggage only, when feasible. However, small carry-on dimensions leave little space for packing all your belongings. Now, more than ever, travelers need creative solutions like this, and the Cosy Collection is happy to be offering products that help fill that void.

“Cosy Collection is proud to be recognized as a self-financed, Black female-owned accessory brand. We believe that comfort and style are everything. It’s all about the details. From the materials to the process to the final product, everything is chosen and crafted for top-notch performance.”

Get it for yourself!

“Every detail has a purpose and makes a big difference! We have partnered with creative makers who share this belief and helped us bring our ideas to life. Our passion shows through our products. We hope you love our products just as much as we do!”

In addition to soon offering additional new colors and styles, the Cosy Collection, the O’Neals hope to make a difference and give back to the community through the Cosy Future Corp.

“This is our nonprofit organization that’s mission is to reduce homelessness. We plan to help educate youth on financial success, business planning, real estate investing, and female empowerment.”
