Add-ons total:


This pillow was handmade using sustainable, natural materials. Woven with igusa rush grass grown in Kyūshū – Japan’s southernmost main island – this pillow has excellent moisture absorbency and a fresh, grassy fragrance. The pillow uses hand-cut igusa, reusing material that would otherwise be thrown away. This hand-cutting method produces shorter clippings than those delivered by machine, increasing the pillow’s density and making it less likely to lose its shape. Its height, however, can be adjusted using the linen ribbons on the sides. By avoiding the standard mud-dyeing process employed to dry regular igusa, the rushes used in this pillow retain smooth, dirt-resistant and chemical-free surfaces.

Doesn’t require washing.
Keep dry to prevent mould from growing.
Avoid direct sunlight.
Due to the nature of the materials, the colour might change over time from green to light brown.

Size: L35 cm x W15 cm
Height Adjustable
