The World’s Most Expensive Pillow Is Coming to Dubai
Can you believe that the most expensive pillow in the world costs 210,000 AED? Yup, you read that right. Right now, let’s just not focus on the fact that the pillow will cost more than anything you will probably ever purchase in your life.
The pillow is coming to INDEX at Dubai World Trade Center from the 22nd to the 25th of May. It kind of makes sense for it to be showcased in Dubai, as Gulf billionaires are probably the only ones who could afford this luxurious item.
There are several reasons why this pillow is immensely expensive; it is made using a 3D printer, tailored to each individual’s dimensions and requirements. It’s also woven with 24-carat gold, uses Mulberry silk, and has a diamond studded zipper complete with a sapphire.
My favorite thing about this pillow is that it is made of Egyptian cotton! If only I had 210,000 AED.
Thijs van der Hilst, the neck specialist and the creator of this luxurious pillow, took 15 years to conceive the idea. Commenting on his creation, he said “Once the core of the pillow is ready, our craftsmen create a precisely fitting cover made out of 24 carat gold to block all radiation during the night, ensuring the most healthy sleep environment for the user.”
He also added: “That golden fabric makes up both sides of the sleep-aid, while its zipper comes studded with no less than four diamonds and a huge 22.5ct sapphire. Heading out for the night? Then pack it in its custom made Louis Vuitton case and you’re bed ready.”
