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. KM03 is fully washable for you to be able to continue experiencing a clean, comfortable, and refreshing sleep.

areas enables high air-circulation.

Please use the pillow in these directions

On your side, please use the side areas.
How to check for the right height of your pillow
To ensure that your pillow is set at the correct height for you,
check at two points: on your back and your side.
If possible, we recommend you have another person help you check the side.
On your back
□ Your jaw is facing up. You are feeling pressure on your neck → B is too high.
□ Your jaw is facing down. Wrinkles are formed around your neck → B is too low.
□ 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
□ Your head is up → C is too high.
□ Your head is down → C is too low
Instruction for adjustment
Use funnels and measurement spoons to remove, little by little, materials inside. Please make sure to assess pillow
height occasionally by laying on it. To measure the amount necessary to shift one size down, please refer to the figure
below. (using a 200ml cup to shift one size down)

We spend about one third of our lifetime sleeping. In order to get the wonderful sleep we all need, it is necessary to take a good care of your pillow. We recommend occasional hand wash and drying under the sun so that you can experience the comfortable sleep you desire.
