The inspiration to found Trtl (pronounced turtle) came when Sir Tom Farmer gave a speech to our class at university. This was someone who spoke with a passion for life and the adventure he had. We knew we wanted to create something and that something, was born in Trtl.
Still looking for the 'idea', as Mechanical Engineers we knew we wanted to put our design skills to the test. Brainstorming one day in a coffee shop (where else!?) in the summer of 2010, we spoke of our travels and how uncomfortable it can be, especially when you really want to sleep on a flight. The conversation then turned to travel pillows and we thought, "Let's create something better."
At Trtl, we believe in living life to the full. We also love travelling and we believe these experiences are what really matters. If you sleep well, you create the foundation to experience more. Our goal in everything we do is to help you for whatever adventure life throws at you next.
Make the most of your time. Sleep well. Dream big.
