Traditionally rigid, Chinese pillows do not fit the idea of European comfort. They can be made of all kinds of materials such as wood, jade, bronze, bamboo or stone.
Their vocation is primarily medical and must in particular allow to correct the posture of the back. If they are not dug cavities in which we place medicinal plants and flowers, they are carved and in precious and / or odoriferous woods thus providing “care” soothing to the sleeper.
Rigid Chinese pillows last until the first quarter of the twentieth century before gradually disappearing in favor of Western soft pillows.
