If you’re one of the millions of people sitting at a computer for eight hours a day, keeping proper posture is a constant concern. You buy all kinds of stopgaps — yoga ball chair, curved keyboard, ergonomic mouse — but how often do you think about keeping your spine lined up while sleeping?

The Hullo Buckwheat Pillow is a naturally ergonomic way to keep your neck and spine aligned while you sleep, meaning you’ll wake up to a more well-rested, pain-free and productive day.

It’s all about the buckwheat

Buckwheat, you say? Pillows, you ask?

Yes to both — buckwheat hulls are surprisingly flexible and durable, and they’re pretty much unmatched as a supportive pillow filling. The hulls lightly compress into the shape of your head and neck, leaving the muscles relaxed.

Meanwhile, countless channels of air between the hulls keep the pillow cool and dry on both sides. High-tech synthetic foams can’t seem to do what these simple little buckwheat hulls do naturally.

An unusually pleasing sleep experience

The feeling of sleeping on one of these pillows is not what you’d expect, with a slight rustling noise and a distinctive physical texture that at first seems unusual for a pillow. By the first morning, though, it’s clear why people swear by these things. The support they provide is one-of-a-kind. Plus, the hulls are expected to last for about a decade before losing their springiness, so this isn’t a pillow you’ll have to replace anytime soon.

Pillows, like chairs and keyboards, are a constant part of life, and can either contribute or impede your physical wellbeing. The more ergonomic these accessories, the less your body will pay in the long run, which is why we recommend you try laying your head on a Hullo Buckwheat Pillow.

Organic and guaranteed

Hullo is proud of the sustainable buckwheat hulls they source from American companies, along with the 100 percent organic cotton case and high-quality zipper that make up their pillows. They’re also confident enough to offer a 60-day, “no questions asked” money-back guarantee.

You can get your hands (and head) on a comfy, durable buckwheat pillow for between $49 and $129. They come in small, standard and king sizes, with fast and free shipping within the U.S.
