why is the ojami so relaxing?
THE SECRET OF RELAXATION 1
stuffing by skillful craftsmen
Unlike ordinary cushions, the Ojami is designed to be three-dimensional and is hand-stuffed with cotton by our craftsmen to ensure greater volume and fluffiness all over. The Ojami Cushion, being thicker, helps to elevate the bottom so you can sit more comfortably and relax.
THE SECRET OF RELAXATION 2
To prevent the Ojami from going flat easily and to give support for a good sitting posture naturally, we created a three-layer structured inner filling. We selected a special urethane which is used as the core, which is then wrapped with a cotton pad, to create exquisite firmness and thickness.
THE SECRET OF RELAXATION 3
Shape secured by center stitch
Middle stitches are applied to the center of the cushions to keep the cotton filling in place. The contours achieved by this stitch, naturally take the form of your body when you sit or lie down on the Ojami, to provide absolute comfort and rest.
I love my Ojami. I bought it with the Kyoto zabuton to use in meditation, and I'm enjoying both of them so much. The design is really unique and beautiful, the craftsmanship is outstanding, and it's incredibly comfortable to sit with. I'll be enjoying my Ojami for a long time!
Our kangu is handcrafted to last and yes, we want you to enjoy your meditation sessions for a long time!
Thank you for the positive review!
I have been following Takaokaya on Instagram for some time now and when I was able to visit Kyoto recently I decided to stop by the store. Best decision ever! Nana-San sat with me and explained all the different kinds of cushions and let me try them to see which one would be best for me. I picked the color I wanted and then it arrived 2 weeks later! It’s been so nice to use it on the sofa as a back support but I like that I could use it as a floor cushion should I want to do that instead!
It's been my pleasure to have you visit Takaokaya workshop, and I am glad that we were able to co-create an Ojami that you love!
Do continue to follow us on IG and help spread the love! Hope to see you again in our workshop when you next visit Kyoto.
Happy Kutsurogi (relaxing)!
We came across Takaokaya while searching online for Japanese-made cushions. The purchase process was done entirely online (we hope to visit their shop when we next visit Japan) but it's super easy to navigate and Nanako-san was very prompt in replying to our queries and making recommendations by understanding our needs. We love our Ojami!
1. Exceptional quality and make (Japanese craftsmanship) - just the perfect balance of fluffiness and support and they retain their shape really well
2. Beautiful fabric - We had a tough time deciding which designs as we loved all their designs (they could even do customised fabric if there's something you have). We also bought the covers so we could get them washed and have different designs
3. Versatile - We use them primarily on our sofa but also sometimes on our work chair or even for sitting on the floor. Think about the primary purpose of your cushions so they can advise you on the appropriate type and size.
4. Wonderful team - The sincerity and passion from the team shine through both in our interaction with them and the products they make. You feel the personal touch and great after-sales service.
Thank you Takaokaya team! :))
Please do visit us at our workshop when you next visit Kyoto, we will be most happy to take you on a kutsurogi (Japan art of relaxation) experience with our kangu (tools of relaxation).
Thank you so much for your kind words and compliments for our products and services, and also sending us a photo. You are awesome!
Hope to see you in person soon!
I love this Ojami very much . It's my first of its kind and I'm excited about it! The quality is excellent .
I would like to thank Sonya for her kind help !
I had never heard of these pillow before but I ordered 2 because they seemed cool. That was an understatement for sure! They are so beautiful and they compliment the zabuton I ordered so well. I love the that they have 2 colors that work together. They are also much sturdier and more comfortable than I even imagined! Definitely order these if its something you are thinking about!
