PILOWS, PILLOWS AND MORE PILLOS

Pillows are great, they help to give feel of coziness to our homes and It looks like there is a natural necessity for a pillow. Gorillas use their arms to support their heads, to help their breathing, and good posture support for the spine etc., Romans and Greeks created soft pillows. These pillows were stuffed with reeds, feathers and straw. Only upper class people typically owned these softer pillows .There is evidence that pillows have existed since 7000 BC. At the beginning, they were made of wood or stone and they were made to keep bugs from crawling into the ears of the wealthier citizens, while in China, the pillows were made of porcelain, stone and bronze, also The Japanese Geishas used hard pillows to keep their neck raised off the ground to keep their hair coiffed for days.
In the middle Ages, men saw pillows as a sign of weakness. Only pregnant women and kings were
allowed to rest their heads on a pillow. Thankfully, when the industrial Revolution came everyone had a pillow on which to rest their heads. And now, we have many choices of pillows today from which to choose.
