This is a popular pillow amongst therapists, it provides the client a comfortable support for their face/forehead while recieving treatment.
The client will not have any marks in the face after an hour on a massage bench as often is the case when the facial rest is made of plastic material.
Also in home environment when you do not have access to a massage bench you can use this pillow on the floor or a table to "create a hole". Use a pillow under your chest so your neck is kept straight.
Pillows filled with buckwheat hulls are cool and stable, you can easily give the pillow the shape you desire, it will not collaps nor try to regain its original form, it just adjusts and supports your face and forehead.
This pillow can also be used as a neck rest.
Casing in 100 % cotton
Buckwheat hulls from organically grown buckwheat
Empty the pillow case and machine wash it on 60 degrees Celsius.
The hulls does not have to be washed but can be washed in three double washing bags in washing mashine. Dry flat on a textile sheet.
In Asia pillows like these are called Makura (means pillow in japanese and chinese language) and Sobakawa (means buckwheat in japanese language). The cleaning process there is to put the hulls out in the sun to let the rays desinfect the hulls.
