What is BREATHAIR® ?

A cushion material with limitless possibilities

BREATHAIR® is a washable cushion material with excellent durability. The fibers in BREATHAIR® are arranged in a complex three-dimensional structure. One way to describe the appearance of the fibers is that they appear similar in structure to a block of instant noodles made from white plastic.

BREATHAIR® has many characteristics: air permeability, cushioning characteristics, water permeability, durability, safe, antibacterial properties and kind to the environment to name but a few. Mattresses and pillows made with BREATHAIR® are not prone to sweatiness and this makes it easy for you to move around and turn over in bed at night. BREATHAIR® bedding allows you to sleep as much as you want in comfort.

Moreover, BREATHAIR® is widely used in hospitals and care facilities because it is easy to wash and also conforms to SEK standards* to limit the propagation of bacteria. Due to its excellent durability, BREATHAIR® has been adopted for use in the seats on N700 Series Shinkansen trains as well as other train lines and motorcycle seats.

Furthermore, a number of artists have discovered that the complex structure of BREATHAIR® is not something that can simply recreated using computer graphics and so BREATHAIR® is increasingly being used in the fields of art and design. BREATHAIR®: a cushion material with limitless possibilities.

*SEK standards are set by the Japan Textile Evaluation Technology Council. SEK standards guarantee the anti-bacterial performance of finishing agents and finishing products.
