Makura means pillow in Japanese. It has been used for centuries, a real 'all-purpose' cushion. Súper versatile, it offers 3 different uses: to sit and meditate and to relieve neck and back pain.

Wedge your lower back in your car as your drive, or on the sofa as you watch a series. Support your neck & head, during relaxation in Savasana or just to sleep.The cords allow you to adjust the firmness of the cushion according to use. Aesthetic, it will serve as a very nice extra seat in your living room. With its compact size, it is ideal to take it everywhere, even accompany your travels.

Why garnish the makuras with spelled husk?
Husk has been used for centuries as stuffing: pillows and even some mattresses are filled with this very effective natural material. Some of the wonderful benefits are:

- Ergonomic: it follows the shape of your body and supports it firmly. It effectively relieves neck and back pain.
- Organic: from controlled organic farming, the husk is purified after being separated from its seed.
- Breathable: it regulates temperature and humidity.

Material

Reused textiles (linen, cotton, synthetic). Artisan dyeing and serigraphy. Water-based and OEKO-TEX® certified inks, harmless for your skin or the environment.

Filling: organic spelt husks.

Colour: Charcoal and white colors.

Care

Thanks to its integrated zipper, the cushion can be emptied once a year to air the spelled balls or to machine wash the cover at 30°. After a few years, you can give a second life by refilling the cushion with new spelled husks.

About the Brand

Anne's childhood dream was creating a workshop where she could play, experiment and create. This is how AMES SENSIBLES was borned. Located at Les ateliers de la Tannerie (Seine-et-Marne, France), a former tannery factory that now brings together artists and craftsmen.

Anna is personally involved in the upcycling process, recovering textiles to create her products. Fabrics with a previous life coming from recycling centers in the region, others are sourced from local upholsterers, and are used to make unique pieces. Before becoming bolsters, cushions or murals for your practice, these fabrics were carefully selected, stripped bare, washed and then transformed.

Serigraphy, an ancestral Chinese technique, allowed Anne to print the patterns she imagined. This technique, close to the stencil, consists of making a matrix by hand, or on a computer. Once created, it can be printed endlessly and it adapts to many supports. Inks are water-based and OEKO-TEX® certified, so they will not damage your skin nor leave no trace in the environment.
