    I am a Buckwheat Pillow. Rest your head on me and you'll feel like a million buckwheats.

     

  • Curator's Notes 

    The buckwheat pillow has been used for over 600 years in Japan, and for good reason. Buckwheat is a natural material - a seed-like fruit that is unrelated to wheat, despite its name. Similar to sunflower seeds in structure, buckwheat has an outer shell known as a "hull". A pillow filled with buckwheat hulls provides firm support for your head that won't collapse, unlike feather or synthetic fills. Rather, it molds gently to fit your head and neck, creating proper alignment for your spine. The spaces of air that remain between each hull allow for breathability and a cooling effect. No more flipping and re-flipping your pillow in search of the cooler side! Its firm support also makes an excellent lumbar pillow to help with lower back pain.
