5 Years of Cozy Sundays: A Trip Down Memory Lane

5 Years of Cozy Sundays: A Trip Down Memory Lane

Did you hear? We’re celebrating our 5-year anniversary here at Sunday Citizen! That’s 5 years of cozy Sundays (and every other day of the week!).

As a family-run business, we’re so thrilled and proud of our journey so far. We want to thank each and every one of you who’ve been with us on the ride, allowing us to spark moments of joy through comfort. You are our “why”, and we truly couldn’t do it without you.

So, let’s take a trip down memory lane and explore some highlights from the past 5 years of Sunday Citizen…

Chapter 1: It All Started with a Throw

It was one special throw, at the Ivey’s Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina, that sparked Sunday Citizen’s cozy revolution. An entrepreneur approached us in 2016 to develop a blanket for his luxury hotels; it had to be as soft as cashmere, yet durable enough to withstand heavy hotel use and cleaning. The perfect blend of luxury and functionality.

We embraced the challenge and created what became the Casablanca Throw, exclusively for use in his hotels. And it was a huge hit. Guests couldn't seem to resist taking our throws home (!) and our own kids couldn't sleep without them. It became clear our product needed to be shared with the world.

Chapter 2: Sunday Citizen Has Entered the Chat

So, we partnered with Michael, the visionary hotelier, to form a family company with a simple mission: create joy through comfort, one soft piece at a time. Sunday Citizen was born!

In 2019, Sunday Citizen officially launched online with a range of throws and blankets. Our business slowly started to grow, as did our commitment to spreading comfort far and wide. And when COVID-19 hit a few months later, the world decided to stay home with us.

Chapter 4: Sunday On The Road

Our journey didn't stop there! In 2020, we took our soft offering on the road to our first trade show in New York City, where we received an overwhelmingly positive response. 

Who would’ve thought that, by 2023, we’d be featured not only in mom and pop stores around the country, but also in Nordstrom, Saks, Bloomingdale's and Macy’s stores nationwide (to name just a few!).


Chapter 5: 5-Stars All Round

Along the way, we've been humbled by incredible reviews and support from our loyal customers, as well as major publications. Your love for Sunday Citizen's products fuels our passion and commitment to creating the softest, high quality items.

From 2019…
