Janette Martin launched Martin & Barnett in 1986, with a line of buckwheat pillows covered in vintage European velvets and old brocade drapes.  Until then, buckwheat pillows were found only in “sensible” and “utilitarian” fabrics, so Martin & Barnett’s bold designs, vibrant colors and luxurious textures were a welcome infusion of style and beauty.   Buckwheat pillows no longer had to be hidden away when not in use, but could be proudly displayed in every area of the home, meshing with any décor.  Today, Martin & Barnett offers pillows in Indian silks, Chinese brocades, silk velvets, luxurious faux fur and more.  The emphasis is on good looks, a good feel, and a well-developed sense of fun!


The line has expanded over the years, relying on Janette’s extensive knowledge of textiles and trends, and on input from our loyal customers.  We now cross-merchandise into clothing boutiques, garden, travel, beauty stores, home furnishings and high-end spas.  Martin & Barnett’s tightly coordinated collection of pillows and gift items offers something for everyone.


Martin & Barnett currently offers two collections a year, including new, seasonal fabrics, new products and continuing top-selling items.  While continuing to serve its committed customer base, Martin & Barnett has broadened into private label design for top name-brand companies, corporate gifts and gift-with-purchase programs.


All of Martin & Barnett’s products are manufactured locally in San Francisco, allowing us to maintain a quick turnaround time, and a competitive price, while never having to compromise our control of quality.
