Made Right Here in Los Angeles

Buzju is made right here in Los Angeles so we have a one-on-one relationship with the people who make this all possible. The best part is when they see us coming and shout out our names.

I was dissatisfied with the existing pillow options and couldn't find one that suited my unique sleeping style. I tried many different types of pillows, including rectangular-shaped pillows, cervical pillows, and pillows that claimed to be revolutionary. None of them worked, so I began to research.

I learned that pillows were originally designed to keep insects out of the hair and ears. The rectangular shape of traditional pillows makes little sense for supporting the head and neck properly, especially as we move around during the night. So, I decided to create a new pillow shape that would support the cervical curve or the base of the head and neck to elongate the spine.

This led to the creation of Buzju, a customizable pillow with a patented Floating-Fill System and organic filling made from Tree Rubber Fiber and Kapok. You can adjust the firmness by removing or adding filling, and the pillow supports where you need it the most.
  • Manufacturing

    We have a very close relationship with manufacturing throughout the process.

  • Proving the Concept

    What would the customers think? We took Buzju to a local farmer's market in Brentwood California. Their support is what fueled us to where we are now.

  • An Early Photo Shoot

    How to show off the product and educate the customer is one of the biggest hurdles when introducing an innovative idea. This was an early photo shoot.
