What can you do when you're upset and there's no one around to give you comfort? This hug shrug has been created to offer a warm embrace in the absence of a buddy, offering you a hand to hold and a tight squeeze.

When designer Mia Cinelli lost someone close to her, she felt that no one could fill the hole left in her life. Her small solution was to create something that would help to soothe her pain and provide her with gentle contact, improving the experience of the particularly lonely hours of the day and night. The Weight is a personal body pillow, made to be draped around your back and shoulders. A pair of arms can be wrapped around you and hands can be clasped for more closeness.
