Natural and refreshing, this little pillow is the perfect firmness for traveling, napping or lounging. The innovative Sasawashi fabric in this lounging pillow retains twice the absorbency of cotton, keeping you fresh and comfortable in any season. The Sasawashi Lounge Pillow is filled with buckwheat husks, believed to be the perfect material for pillows in Japan's hot and humid climate. The husks are boiled and soaked in Kumazasa extract, heightening the pillow's natural deodorizing properties. No chemicals are used in the production of this pillow, making it gentle to the skin and kind to the environment.
Includes a removable cover.
Sasawashi was founded as a reaction to the wastefulness and ephemeral lifespan of the textile industry. Made from absorbent washi (Japanese paper) threads infused with antibacterial Kumazasa plant fibers, this innovative fabric contains natural deodorizing properties that prevent mildew growth and fiber deterioration. From room shoes to scrub towels, every piece in the Sasawashi collection stays true to its founding principles: comfort, longevity, and simplicity.
Materials: Pillow case: 100% Sasawashi fabric. Insert: 100% cotton. Filling: buckwheat and kumazasa
Dimensions: Height: 3¾" Width: 7” Length: 12½”

This kettle is produced in Iwate Prefecture, where cast iron manufacturing has a history of over nine hundred years. At once artful and quiet in form, this piece reinterprets the traditional nambu kettle style. Water that is boiled in an iron kettle has a distinctly mellow flavor that pairs ideally with savory Japanese green teas, making this tea kettle the perfect companion for afternoon tea.
Safe to use on inductive-heat stovetops.
Materials: cast iron
Dimensions: Height: 4” Diameter: 5½”
Volume: 34 oz
Care: Dry thoroughly after each use. Please note that the iron may rust slightly due to natural oxidization and that the kettle is still completely safe to use. A slight film will appear inside after usage; because it prevents rust, we recommend not scrubbing it off. Using your kettle daily for the first month will solidify that film and maximize the kettle's lifespan.
