Beautiful Paulownia Wood Grown in South Korea
The quality of a product is always dependant on its material. The Wooden Pillow is made from a tree that is specifically grown for its durability and strength, and has been used for ages.
The wood of the Paulownia tree is the lightest and softest of all woods, making it a perfect material for the Wooden Pillow. It grows straight and upright and is very resilient to humidity, bugs and decay. It's used for many things such as furniture, storage for valuables, fine packaging material, instruments, sculptures and art.
But not only functional, this tree is a healer and the bark is used to treat bruises, sprains, eczema and tumors. Also, it is insecticidal, and the leaves are put in squat toilet bathrooms to eliminate bugs and odors. And because of its resilience to blight and harmful insects, planting a Paulownia tree protects its neighboring trees. Paulownia leaves are also used to make cleansing agents that were applied to prevent wrinkles and gray hair.
This tree with so many uses makes the Wooden Pillow comfortable, strong and incredibly lightweight. It can easily be packed in a suitcase to take on trips and is especially useful after a long flight when the body needs to unwind and de-stress.
The Wooden Pillow, Lower Back Bolster, and Ankle Massager are made of premium Paulownia wood, which is known for its strength and durability.
Asian Cultures Have Used Paulownia for Millennia
In China, Korea, and Japan, it was the custom to plant a paulownia tree when a daughter was born to the household. The daughter's growth to womanhood was synchronous with the growth of the tree.
The Paulownia tree's fast growth rate makes it fit to use for lumber at only 15-20 years old. Therefore, when the daughter was old enough to get married, they cut the tree and made it into a chest or drawer for the daughter's wedding gift. Most trees that grow rapidly aren't strong, but the Paulownia is an exception and has been used for furniture for ages.
Additionally, ancient Chinese lore says that if a Paulownia tree is planted near the house, the legendary Phoenix will come to the land and bring prosperity and wisdom. Because of this, most Chinese settlements nurtured a Paulownia tree in hope that the bird would choose it, and thereby bestow honor and dignity on the inhabitants.
