Regular priceSale price
Our naturally organic buckwheat hulls have a beanbag-like feel and contours to your body. Buckwheat is great for use in pillows, meditation cushions, zafus, beanbags, floor mats, dolls and so much more! Buckwheat husks are considered very firm and are meant to keep your body, head, neck and spine aligned. Buckwheat hulls are also called Sobakawa and promote airflow, are temperature neutral and naturally resistant to dust mites.
After harvesting, the buckwheat hulls are separated from the seeds and are cleaned using a powerful air jet technology that is intended to blow out any dirt or debris, they are not fumigated using any chemicals or roasted.
These hulls are not cupped but flat as this is what I prefer to use in my products. In my experience, I find that while more buckwheat is used in volume with the flat hulls, the product will maintain its shape and feel longer then when using cupped hulls. Cupped hulls will eventually flatten and break apart once weight is applied over time.
Buckwheat is naturally organic as it is resistant to pests and is a sustainable crop that requires no pesticides and very little input from the land to mature. The buckwheat is sourced from a grower in the US.
