Ancient pillows were a piece of art - special ornaments were applied to them, protecting from the evil spirit, providing strength and health.
Pillows were filled with dried aromatic herbs, down and feathers of exotic birds, animal hair. Many ancient doctors used the pillow as a healing item. According to legend, Buddha filled the pillows with herbs and thus healed after an illness.
