Hara Hachi Bun Me

by Jiangsu careSEEN home living Co.,Ltd.

Project Description


The "Hara Hachi Bun Me" pillow, as its name suggests, features an innovative design—filled to 80% with buckwheat hulls—meticulously crafted to optimize sleep quality. This unique filling approach effectively restricts the movement of the hulls, and allows users to finely tune the height from 4 to 12 centimeters by adjusting the hull distribution. Such adaptability ensures an ergonomic fit with the cervical spine, meeting diverse preferences for neck support and significantly alleviating pressure on the neck and shoulders. Moreover, the pillow caters to the widespread Asian preference for a firmer sleeping experience. When paired with an appropriate mattress, the buckwheat hulls within leverage their inherent firmness to enhance spinal support. This feature is particularly beneficial for those suffering from neck pain due to prolonged smartphone use or extensive desk work. Design ingenuity is also evident in material choice. The pillowcase boasts a four-layer composite structure, comprised of Coolish Skin fabric, high-resilience microfiber padding, and dual layers of hollow mesh. This combination delivers a refreshingly cool sensation, sumptuously soft and skin-friendly touch, and exceptional breathability. The Coolish Skin fabric stands out with its high Q-max rating of up to 0.27, making it especially ideal for summer use by effectively mitigating sweat during sleep. The high-resilience microfiber padding shields against irritations from the buckwheat hulls, such as prickling or itching. Harvested from the high-altitude Liangshan region of Sichuan Province, the premium buckwheat hulls improve air circulation with their microporous structure, keeping the pillow fresh, hygienic, and resistant to bacterial growth. The refreshing aroma of buckwheat hulls further aids in soothing users, helping them drift smoothly into sleep. Moreover, users can unzip the pillowcase for hassle-free washing and maintenance, and the buckwheat hulls inside can be sun-dried, ensuring that the pillow stays delightfully crisp and bouncy, just like new, over time.
