According to Studio5.com, the pillow tie was invented by BYU student Thomas Brown as a project for an entrepreneur class. His idea soon blossomed into an online company where people could order these funny, yet practical gifts.
The tie inflates quickly and easily via a small opening on the backside to become a comfortable pillow. It’s perfect for a catching a quick powernap in business meetings or for churchgoers wanting to catch some z’s during long sermons.
When the pillow novelty has worn off you can remove the inflatable portion and use it as a normal tie.
