Since 1947, we have devoted ourselves entirely to making bedclothes using absorbent medical cotton, which was then an unconventional idea proposed by the founder of "pasima", Reiichiro Kakehashi.
Most of the bedding items today are made of various materials combined with chemical substances. Through our research and trials and errors tests, we finally reached the conclusion that the best skin-friendly bedclothes could be simply created with pure absorbent cotton and gauze. Ten years later, our enthusiasm and craftsmanship in making absorbent medical cotton enabled us to produce the ideal bedclothes we proudly present to you today.
"Good sleep is the basis of good health. Good bedclothes are the key to good sleep." We are delighted to create a bridge between good quality sleep and good health. This is the idea behind "pasima".
The pasima factory is located in Ukiha City, Fukuoka Prefecture, known as a river village blessed with clear springs. Under such circumstances, we make a point of harmonizing our manufacturing process with this gift of nature.
Clean water is essential for purifying cotton up to medical grade quality. In this way, the skin-friendly "pasima" is deeply related to the pure water and natural richness of the land.
"pasima" is actually a quilting material made of absorbent medical cotton and gauze. It is obtained by carefully refining natural cotton, removing impurities such as oil and dirt as much as is physically possible without the usage of any chemicals like antibacterial agents, fabric softeners, fluorescent brightening agents, starch or fungicide. That’s why we are confident in saying that this skin-friendly and stress-free pasima material will help you achieve nice and comfortable sleep.
Our products became the first Japan-made bedding items that received the OKEO-TEX®︎ standard 100 classⅠ certification, which internationally applies safety and reliability standards to textile goods and strictly classifies them. Because they contain no harmful substances, our products present no health risks and are safe to use even on baby skin.
