about nishijin silk
Nishijin is Kyoto’s ancient weaving district, with a history dating back to the 5th century. The area is well known for its silk fabric and are used by the imperial court, aristocrats, and temple leaders for centuries. What makes Nishijin Silk so special is that the fabric is weaved using dyed thread, which means the fabric has to be woven according to the design, instead of dyeing the fabric after it is woven.

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.
The company Takaokaya was shown on Japanese television and I was delighted with their work of art and tradition. Ordering online was easy, and I am very pleased with the customer service with international customers.
Fabulous products that are made with great precision, quality, and the finest technique.
I wish the company in the future good luck and prosperity.
