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.
Very pleased with my cushions. With the small tatami that I had bought previously, they created a beautiful quiet corner in my office where I can enjoy a cup of tea or meditate.
Thank you Marcelo for th 5* review for the Ojami cushions. We hope that the cushions bring you respite when work gets a bit overwhelming.
We stayed in a hotel in Tokyo at Christmas that had Takaokaya Ojami cushions on the bed. My husband and I fell in love with them and knew that we wanted some for back home in the UK. Even before we had left Tokyo I was on the website planning what colour and pattern combinations we would get. We loved that we could pick fabrics that appealed to us, in a combination of our choosing. I ordered as soon as we got home and then waited (impatiently!!) for them to arrive. I was so excited when the parcel was delivered today and they are just as we had hoped. I now want to fill my house with Ojami cushions! I will definitely be visiting Takaokaya in person next time we are in Kyoto, and if I get impatient again before then, just ordering more online. :)
Thank you for the love note , Morag. We are totally feeling the love you have for our Ojami cushions, and we are happy that they bring so much joy to you and your husband!
Please have a great time relaxing on them.
We hope to be able to host you at our workshop the next time so you can experience an authentic Kutsurogi time with more of our Kangu.
Happy Kutsurogi in UK!
My husband and I fell in love with these cushions when we first saw them and purchased some from Takaokaya. We are so happy with them - they are the perfect height and combination of soft and firm as well as being simply beautiful. We bought some for the studio of our house and they’re fantastic to lie or sit on. The colours are perfectly soft and elegant, we will definitely be buying more for our house.
It is wonderful to know that our Ojami cushions are providing both comfort and aesthetics for your house studio. Thank you for letting our Kangu be a part of your home.
We look forward to creating more unique Kangu for your house.
It’s so well made and the colors of the fabric are stunning. I love using it as a back rest on my couch.
Nothing makes us happier than knowing that our customers love the Kangu that we made! Thank you MP for making our day! :)
Wishing you countless Kutsurogi moments with your Ojami cushion!
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!
