Features and advantages

Structural pillow in the form of a roller is a cover in which the filler is located. Usually, for filler they sew the base of the pillowcase, which is filled and sewn completely.

How to choose correctly?

How to choose such a pillow among finished goods? To begin with, measure the distance from the neck to the shoulder and focus on it. If possible, try the product in the store. If it is a furniture department – stick on the bed, because you have to sleep on such a pillow. It should not be very much under your weight.

Also remember your favorite postures: If you sleep only on your stomach, you can not put a neck on the pillow in principle, but for the alignment of the back it will be the place under the belly. Only in this case the roller should not be high. Those who sleep in the embryo pose – Kalachik – also such a pillow is hardly suitable. The price of the pillow will depend on both filler and the cover. Roller headrest, inflated by air, costs from 500 rubles., and anatomical cushion made of CURE FEEL with cooling effect – 7500 rub. Japanese pillow with gold embroidery will be on the pocket not all, since the price of one bobbing thread costs 18,000 rubles.

As a result of your choice, you will find either a good orthopedic agent or a beautiful decor element.


Such a product will not require a specific care. Since the filler will be sewn into a special pillowcase, then you just need to remove the case and wrapping it (clean it). Depending on the fabric and decorative elements of the cover, the manual or machine washing is allowed. If it is a homemade thing for a child in the form of a toy with eyes, nose, pigtails, glued to the pillow, then you should not wash it in a washing machine.

When washing natural fabrics, do not forget that they will give shrinkage from hot water. In such cases, they recommend manual washing in cool water or delicate washing at 30 degrees in the typewriter. Leather sofa rollers will certainly be able to do with a wet cleaning. If nevertheless, it became necessary to wipe the roller himself (of course, not from herbs and buckwheat husk), then remove the case and try to put the pillow in the machine. With this method of washing it will be easier to dry.

After manual washing, let the water drain. Specify on the label, is it possible to squeeze it.

Beautiful interiors

Orthopedic pillows do not require decorative design. Road variant often goes into microfiber or fleece. Bedding rollers dress up in bed linen. But for decorative use, various options for designing pillows. Cylindrical shape – the most familiar for rollers. It is convenient for sleep, games and decor. Roller with a beveled edge, as a rule, is used on sofas as armrests. But it is also convenient to stay rest.

On the cylinders with a flat sidewall, bright large buttons are sewn as decor, embroidered frills, flowers and T. NS. But it can be a classic option with a beautiful corner of contrasting color or cloth of another texture. The option of candy involves the use of a multi-colored case, braid. And maybe strict fan with short tails and gilded cords.

The bed is often decorated with a large number of pillows of different sizes: standard, dums, rollers. It will be beautiful when designing Loft, Modern and other destinations. But the color combination will be different: if you doubt the correct selection of color gamut, turn to the palette. But remember the rule: harmoniously looks close to the tint shades or contrasting colors. For design in calm colors, use no more than three colors.

Any selected option must be harmonized with the environment. Eastern style decor is performed, it means that it will be bright, much, expensive.
