We spend a quarter to a third of our lives sleeping.
As humans, sleep is very important to staying healthy.
We spend our waking hours sitting and standing, our bodies going against the forces of gravity, and when we are asleep is the only time where we let our bodies be free from the burdens of weight, making sleep an extremely important activity.
Because sleep is so important, choosing the right pillow (height, shape, material, etc.) to support your head, neck, and body is also very crucial decision.
Washi Pillows have been developed under the supervision of the Japanese Society for Complementary and Alternative Medicine to provide, through custom height and hardness, ideal sleeping comfort based on the latest research, combined with the functionality and comfort of Washi, a traditional kind of Japanese paper.
Using our proprietary standards and data calculated from an individual’s body type and shape, our sleep health specialists are able to craft the perfect pillow for you．
【 The Five Benefits of Washi Pillows】
1. Order-made to a height that fits your body shape and type perfectly
2. Uniform Support: Lump-free, supports the neck, and allows for healthy movement during sleep
3. Perfect hardness thanks to multi-layer urethane construction
4. Superior comfort and performance thanks to special Japanese Washi Fiber pillow cover
On average, we roll over and change positions while sleeping 20 to 30 times per night. If you move 20 times during 7 hours of sleep time, that means you’re moving about once every 20 minutes. We decided to compare temperature changes in our Washi Pillow versus a regular low-resistance pillow after lying down for 20 minutes. The results show that our Washi Pillow is better at dispersing heat than a regular low-resistance pillow.

Other benefits of Washi Fabric include excellent sweat absorption and quick-dry fabric, meaning you’ll be able to use your Washi Pillow comfortably in any situation.
In our Washi Pillows, not only is the outer cover made from innovative Washi Fabric, but the inner cover that holds the pillow together is also made with the same Washi Fabric.
Washi Fabric is the result of research to create mokuito thread crafted with 100% washi traditional Japanese paper made from conifer trees ecologically sourced from tree thinning operations in Japan.
Washi Fabric does not pill and is very soft and smooth, making it perfect for people with sensitive skin.
The mokuito thread used to make Washi Fabric is unbleached and dye-free, resulting in a soothing, naturally colored pillow case.
Washi Fabric is just as strong as cotton, meaning you don’t have to worry about tossing your pillow cover in the washing machine.
