Zippered hand painted Indonesian batik cover, hand washing and air drying the cotton insert and cover will prolong its life. Both insert and cover are doubled stitched and serged for durability and edges that don’t fray. Although I make a queen version of this pillow, this one is smaller, for 2 main reasons the weight at 5 plus pounds is not too heavy to position on your bed and it can easily double as meditation cushion plus many people find that the main benefit of a buckwheat hull pillow is that is offers great head and neck support and you are less likely to move around once you find that sweet spot.

The reason I use cotton for this particular pillow and many of the other support is for durability. Unlike many of the silk fabrics I use these cottons are less likely to snag and wear out when used on the floor for sitting.  

This pillow’s cotton insert has a zipper so you may adjust the fill. Make sure to empty the buckwheat fill before washing, getting hulls wet is a no no.

One 17 x 17 x 5  inch bed pillow and meditation cushion filled with organic buckwheat hulls and lavender buds or left unscented. Adjustable fill.

This unique, practical and comforting  support and small bed pillow is made with hand-painted Indonesian Batik.

Description

This 17 x 17 x 5 inch small bed pillow is made with hand painted Indonesian batik fabric and filled with organic buckwheat hulls, it weighs no less than 5 pounds and comes with a zippered insert and outer cover that are machine washable on a gentle cycle.. This custom made high quality support pillow may vary in size. Those with allergies to feathers or synthetics will appreciate buckwheat’s hypo-allergenic nature. Unlike other pillow fillings, buckwheat hulls do not compress under pressure. The buckwheat hulls are 100% organic, natural and Eco-friendly. Scented with lavender buds or unscented. These hand-made high quality support pillows may vary slightly in size.

Most of the Batiks are produced on the island of Java in Indonesia by skilled dye masters. Each yard of these sumptuous fabrics is unique. The fabric is hand-stamped and then hand-painted multiple times, with many different pairs of hands working on every yard. Most of the work is done outside, so the weather greatly influences the results. Due to this specialized hand-process, there are some inconsistencies to the colors and pattern, while maintaining subtle color variations that are so important to this traditional technique.

The cotton batik fabrics are designed in America by designers that include Michael Miller and Robert Kaufman.
