The shape of the Long Pillow, like its shorter sibling the Tawara Pillow, was inspired by the traditional Japanese straw bag used in the past to transport rice grains called the kome dawara (米俵). Whether as a nap pillow or as a footrest, the long pillow can do it all. Adjust the height of the pillow according to your preference, allowing it to fit one's body shape perfectly. To lower its height, loosen the string, and to increase its height, tie the string tighter.

Hikizome (lit. ‘pull dye’) is a traditional Japanese dye technique in which fabric is stretched tight, water is applied and then dye is applied by hand with a brush. Painting the dye into the wet fabric causes it to blur. This technique can also be known as bokashizame, (lit. ‘blur dye’). We have 2 colors for this Hikizome collection. Both names come from famous sightseeing spots in Kyoto. These will be a great combination with Kyoto zabuton.
