Remarkable for a buckwheat pillow is its size, which is smaller than we are used to in Europe. In the standard pillow sizes, the supporting property of the buckwheat filling is canceled. The ratio of the pillow plays a crucial role in this. That is why buckwheat pillows are never available in standard pillow sizes.
We have three sizes of buckwheat pillows in our range. All in the same ratio (10: 7) of the original traditional buckwheat pillow format that has been used in Asia for centuries.
It is important that you choose the size buckwheat pillow you prefer and consider your posture and favorite lying position. We will explain why.
The traditional Asian buckwheat pillow concept has a size of 50 x 35 cm. This is the perfect buckwheat pillow format. In our experience, this format is suitable for most adults and children from 6 years old.
The largest buckwheat pillow is an upscaled version of the traditional buckwheat pillow size. The model originated from the Western desire to meet the needs of adults with a large physique. The format gives the possibility to support higher. This way you fill in the necessary space between the mattress and shoulder and the side of your neck.
Our experience has shown that not every tall or larger person needs a large buckwheat pillow. Usually, a back-sleeper has can benefit from a lower pillow to lie correctly. The luxurious, large buckwheat pillow format is therefore primarily a personal preference.
The smallest buckwheat pillow is also based on the traditional buckwheat pillow ratio. A handy format with versatility. Children from the ages of 2 to 6 years benefit from this small size buckwheat pillow.
This model can also be used for support where needed, for example as a headrest on the sofa or while reading in bed. Place the pillow between the knees in the lateral position and it provides support for the lower back and pelvis. The smallest buckwheat pillow size is ideal for traveling.
Your physique and the width of your shoulders should be taken into account when choosing a pillow. The right pillow will ensure that your head and neck are in a straight line with the rest of your spine, parallel to your mattress. In this way the body can relax completely and recover.
The use of an incorrect pillow can lead to an incorrect lying position. Both by lying with your head too high and too low you get a curvature in your vertebrae. A good pillow should prevent this problem by relieving stress and tension from neck muscles during sleep. If you often wake up over a long period with problems with your neck, this is an important signal that you are not in the correct lying position.
