At the heart of the hobby, Dakimakura inners plays an integral role of the overall hugging experience. The problem is, advancements in this area has been seriously lacking. After many years, little to no quality accessible options is available for international markets. Even premium ones from Japan has reports of inconsistency among experienced users. Dakimakuri’s mission is to breakthrough with reasonably priced inners that bests what is available in the market today.
Like cooking, creating new inners from scratch is simple yet complicated with infinite possibilities for the very same dish. With significant investments and many trial and error over the past year, we challenged ourselves to solve all the major weakness common to pillow inners that we frequently see and encounter.
One of the biggest obstacles was to create a filling blend that is anti-clumping, soft to the touch but also supportive. Coarsely filled pillows (1.7kg) such as those from Ebay generics and bootleg sites simply lumps and deteriorates quickly, while ultra-fine fillings such as down (4kg+) is not only expensive but have little to no resilience where if filled reach certain firmness, the pillow would only be an uncomfortable bloated pillow. Even mainstream brands from Japan has its downsides which is done to cut down on manufacturing, storage and shipping costs. Ball-shaped clusters are often used by these factories that is great at first but will eventually loosen and become lumpy as the clusters detach from each other.
Dakimakuri blend of high resilience poly-fill ensures the perfect balance between loft and support. Our dakimakura is 60% more filled by weight than comparable inners, will expands to perfectly fill the casing allowing for a memory foam-like consistency while retaining both high softness and resiliency. The fabric casing, same as our DIY offering is made from stretchable 2wt brushed fabric (90%/10% ratio) providing a friction surface that allows the cover to stay in place throughout the night.
Not convinced? We offer 100-day guarantee for our inners, if it does not meet your expectation, contact us and we will make it right. Free filling samples with any order is available upon request (US only, while supplies last) We work with about half dozen independent factories to make the inners possible, each responsible for creating a part of the pillow. We do not sell rebranded generics, be wary of any sellers claiming to be offering the identical product.
