Pillow Sheath

Kanji script on this fabric 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."

Customize the look and firmness of your J-Life Buckwheat Hull Pillow, or Soba Gara Makura, with our Japanese pillow covers and loose buckwheat hull (available by the pound).

Our handmade buckwheat pillow covers allow you to easily transfer the buckwheat pillow filling from an existing pillow cover into a different one, so you can refresh the look of your Japanese bedding, or replace a damaged/ worn pillowcase.

Traditional Japanese Comfort

Faithful to Japanese tradition, your sobakawa pillow case is composed of:

  • An outer sheath that functions like a pillowcase and is available in White Ultra Sateen or in the same matching fabric as the outer case. In Japan, the color white is considered sacred and is associated with purity, humility, and cleanliness. It holds great significance in the Shinto religion.

  • An outer case made with 100% cotton imported traditional Japanese fabric.


Our buckwheat pillows are available in two styles: the buckwheat neckroll pillow and the rectangular buckwheat pillow (each sold separately).

Rectangular Buckwheat Pillow: 13" x 18"

Buckwheat Neck Pillow: 3.5" x 15"

Love the Buckwheat

Hi party people! I love the way the fabric feels. The colors are really vibrant and lush. Iv got the rectangle buckwheat for my head and Iv got a knock role for my knees and for traveling. Can’t wait to get the whole set up.

Buckwheat hull pillows

The large square Pillow is really perfect, the rolled pillow isn’t as full as I thought it would be. However they are really nice pillows to sleep on. I’m very glad I purchased them. I was going to buy another set but there was no place to put the 15% off coupon code I was given so sadly I did not purchase anther set Yes I recommend these pillows. It’s always nice to be able to use a coupon code though. ☺️
