Traditional Japanese Bedding at Soaring Heart

by Michael Schaefer September 03, 2011

The Japanese have been sleeping on traditional firm bedding for centuries, because they realize the benefits that bedding can have for your neck, back, and overall health. Here at Soaring Heart Natural Bed Company, we offer the complete traditional Japanese set for you to improve your body’s alignment in sleep.

The traditional Japanese bedding set includes the buckwheat pillow, which is firm and supports the curvature of the spine. This set also incorporates a cotton mattress pad, which is used to protect the thin and firm shikibuton. The traditional tatami mat is made from compressed rice straw. It has a little give but is still firm and supportive. All of these products rest on the tatami frame, which completes the set! If you are experiencing neck or back problems, a firm Japanese bed may be the perfect solution to ease your aches and pains.

Japanese bedding and other natural bedding is very easy to take care of in order to maintain its quality. Traditionally the Japanese fold up their tatami every day, which allows it to air out and hold its shape. Just fold lengthwise into thirds, and set your pillow on top to hold it down. This will also let you show off your tatami during the day.

Soaring Heart Natural Bed Company supplies the entire traditional Japanese bedding set made from eco-friendly and all natural products. Our experts in Seattle will help you choose the best products for you so that you have the best sleep possible. explore our website to view all of our natural bedding products, or contact us at 202-282-1717 or 877-288-1717 for more information today! Sleep well.

Quarantined? Sheltered in Place? Home with the kids and looking for things to do?  Here's a couple quick tips to help everyone sleep better - starting tonight:

1)  Air your bedding.  When cherry trees blossom its a great reminder to hang a temporary clothes line and air your winter bedding.  

2) Do a thorough launder of your mattress pads, dust mite covers, pillow liners.  Flip the mattress and catch up with those dust bunnies hiding under the bed. 

3) Check your labels!  C'mon - how long have you really had those bed pillows?

How many plastic straws = one plastic mattress?

by Mike Schaefer February 19, 2020

We green consumers may be a small portion of the economy - but we are growing and we can appreciate how nuts the rest of the economy can be.  Our kids can teach us not to use plastic straws, or to avoid one use plastics at the grocery store - but who teaches us not to purchase a 300 lb plastic mattress?  (How many thousands of recycled straws would that be?!)
