During his career playing professional basketball for Maccabi Tel Aviv, David Sternlight was on the road a lot. While seeing the world was always an adventure, he found most methods of travel to be cramped and uncomfortable – especially at 6’8 tall.
Determined to create a better travel experience for himself and others, David began to design a travel neck pillow that actually works. In 2009, after months of development, the revolutionary Cabeau Evolution Pillow was born.
Cabeau’s patented travel pillows, comfort products, and innovative accessories can be found in over 110 countries worldwide. Our products have set new industry standards for superior craftsmanship, quality, and comfort.

Innovations in our extended product line are inspired by our customers, who have shared with us what they like, what works, and what would further enhance their travels.
