This is our ever-popular Organic Buckwheat Hull Pillow with Lavender and Organic Cotton that we have been making for 14 years. Okay, so that isn't ancient, but it is an Asian tradition dating back more than 500 years.
As for how it FEELS, well to the hand it feels like a beanbag full of lightweight crunchy things. We sold them for over 6 months and they sold WELL before I got the courage to try it at home. The first couple of nights it was odd. It noticed the texture and a little sound when I rolled over to change position. But after a couple of nights I started thinking it was wonderful. I used it for a couple of years and then when the shredded latex pillows became available, I fell in love with them instead. The buckwheat pillow is from an ancient Asian tradition and it is still recommended by chiropractors everywhere today, because it gives ideal support to the head and neck and spine. I have found only a few customers who decided that it wasn't their style to sleep on it every night - and those people say that they use it occasionally when neck pain is flaring up, and it helps. They continue to be super popular!
