buckwheat hull pillows
The traditional pillow used for sleeping purposes is one filled with natural buckwheat hulls. The Japanese have a belief that in order to sleep well one should keep head temperature cool and the feet warm. Pillows filled with synthetics or down trap heat and make one’s head feel warm. A pillow filled with buckwheat hulls, however, feels cooler to sleep on because the hulls stay very neutral in temperature. We currently make 4 different styles of buckwheat pillows but custom orders are welcome.
