Our Japanese Buckwheat Hull Pillows will fit the contours of your head and neck and give the perfect amount of support.
They are made of 100% double cleaned organic American fluffy buckwheat hulls. Unlike imported buckwheat hulls, these contain no dangerous chemicals from fumigation.
The Kanji script is from an old Japanese poem that reads:
"The fragrant, colored flowers are delicately scattered. Who can remain unchanged in this world?
Transcend the present world, do not dream fleeting dreams, do not act out."
We offer the pillows in two styles - a 13" x 18" rectangular pillow or a 3.5" x 15" neck pillow. Either style is available with a White Ultra Sateen outer pillow sheath rather than a colored one.
Rectangular 13" x 18" - 3.8 pounds.
Neck Roll 3.5" x 15" - 1.2 pounds.
Faithful to Japanese tradition, the set features an inner case with a convenient 'hidden' zipper for adjusting the amount of buckwheat hulls used for filling to your personal comfort level. The outer sleeve is made of the same cotton fabric or White Ultra Sateen, and, like the inner case, is machine washable. (Buckwheat hulls are not washable.)
Add-in the natural relaxing and calming properties of organic French lavender. It is known to greatly help with relaxation and an undisturbed nights sleep.
All our pillows are hand made by skilled craftsmen and designed to last for many years. This will quickly become your favorite pillow.
