This buckwheat pillow is available in an organic cotton case with or without a zipper. We’d recommend getting the zipper (which costs just $8) as this allows for you to easily adjust the filling to get the desired loft and makes for easier airing out of the hulls (especially if the pillow gets wet).
Buckwheat pillows can take a little getting used to, but offer excellent temperature regulation and comfort, as well as structured support. By adjusting the fill, these pillows can be made to suit most sleeping positions and are an excellent choice for anyone with neck or back pain.

Rawganique was founded in 1997 by off-grid homesteaders on Denman Island off the west coast of Canada. They have deliberately stayed small-scale over the last 20 years so as to preserve the integrity of their eco-friendly efforts. The company handcrafts products made with organic cotton, linen, and hemp, and maintains control of the purity and sustainability of their products by growing, weaving, knitting, and sewing most of them right on their homestead. The founders describe themselves as ‘chemically sensitive people’ who use only their own products because they can guarantee their purity.
Rawganique add that ‘vegan’ stamp to their products because they can guarantee ‘Zero animal testing. Zero animal cruelty. Zero slave labor. Zero sweatshop. We never have to test on animals because our organic products come from perfect natural fibers and can’t harm any animal or human!’
