Washable pillow
Though it is not well known, we sweat around 200ml per sleep. Anatomically, our head prefers a lower temperature than any other area of body, and thus, it is more likely to produce sweat to release the heat. KM03J is fully washable for you to be able to continue experiencing a clean, comfortable, and refreshing sleep.

□ The back of your head is up → Either A is too high or B is too low.
□ The back of your head is down → Either A is too low or B is too high.
On your side
