At the heart of the hobby, inners play an integral role in the hugging experience. The problem is, advancements in this area have been seriously lacking. After many years, little to no accessible, quality options are available for international markets. Even premium pillows from Japan have reports of inconsistencies 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 same dish. With significant investments and much trial and error over the past year, we challenged ourselves to solve all the major weaknesses common to pillow inners that we frequently encounter.

One of the biggest obstacles was to create a filling blend that is anti-clumping and soft to the touch, but also supportive. Coarsely filled pillows (1.7kg) such as those from Ebay generics and bootleg sites lump and deteriorate quickly, while ultra-fine fillings such as down (4kg+) is expensive and has little to no resilience resulting in an uncomfortably bloated pillow. Even mainstream brands from Japan have their downsides to cut down on manufacturing, storage and shipping costs. Commonly used ball-shaped clusters work well at first but will eventually loosen and become lumpy as the clusters detach from each other.

Dakimakuri's blend of high resilience poly-fill ensures the perfect balance between loft and support. Our dakimakura is 60% more filled by weight compared to similar inners and will expand perfectly to 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 2 way tricot 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 a 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.
