Such all-encompassing comfort and quality is hard come by, but as I found it is unmistakable. Only the most sought after hand-gathered Hungarian goose down amply fills the Flagship Pillow?s lavish 31 by 40 inches. The quality of the down lends to the weightless cozy feel that is made complete by the 340 thread count single ply 100% Egyptian cotton pillowcase. I was surprised that something so wonderfully huge could be so weightless. Like Howard Hughes?s ?Spruce Goose? the pillow defies its size and somehow floats. The comfort is truly a sensation that cannot be fully understood until tried.
Like the pillow the white on white design and three flag insignia is classic, elegant, and free of worry as the pillow features double stitching ensuring a sealed hypoallergenic pillow that no down will escape. It is perfect companion to float on in the summer or to sink into in the winter.
Due to the rarity of Hungarian goose the co-founders of Three Sheets Bedding had to embark on a journey that lead from Santa Barbara to Hungary and back again until their lust for this remarkable pillow was satisfied.
Their journey started in the rooms of a cozy Santa Barbara getaway when Peter Goodson and Mariel Rittenhouse couldn?t part with their pillows, and ended up buying pillows for themselves and for a few friends. Naturally with the limited supply of pillows the demand could not be met.
Among those who wanted a pillow was Mike Larocca, who while sailing with Peter and Mariel on Sag Harbor had the pleasure of napping with the pillow. Unsurprisingly he was attached. So, right on the Harbor the three laid the groundwork for Three Sheets Bedding, a company that would spare no expense to assure the finest products with the finest materials.
It took many long distance phone calls and an incognito trip to a trade show to track down a Hungarian manufacturer. But the journey has been worth it for the co-founders and I think for anyone who has gotten the chance to spend the night with the Flagship Pillow.
Three Sheets Bedding now has exclusive rights to the Flagship Pillow. But a classic pillow needs classic sheets. So Three Sheets makes matching white-on-white 400 thread count single-ply 100% Egyptian cotton linens. This winning combination will make you never want to settle for less.
