My friend Tom Castañeda hosted the launch.

IMG_2045-001Mr. Big founder Mr. Chawakit Kaoien is a licensed physical therapist who worked extensively with patients who were in critical condition for 11 years. “To improve the condition of my patients, as well as their quality of life, I would arrange their sleeping positions for various purposes such as to reduce pressure, and soreness, to ease pain, to promote blood circulation, to allow heart-failure patients to sleep better, to prevent contracture and many more.”

Apart from his hospital patients, Chawakit also helped his wife deal with her neck and back pain by adjusting her sleeping position using several pillows. He would stitch the pillows together so they don’t get displaced and continue to provide support where the body needed it. That home-made DIY pillow then became the humble beginnings of what we know now as Mr. Big Pillow.

Below is the VLOG with interviews and me trying out the pillows and beds.
