Description and uses
While considered a decorative piece of furniture, the feather pillow—along with the waster—is the best weapons used for training, as it does very little or no damage at all. This version uses hemp cloth when manufacturing a hemp feather pillow, which is very economical and comfortable enough according to many hemp growers who sometimes consider cotton producers to be textile snobs.
Often portrayed as the instrument of choice in the classic pillow fight, an explosion of feathers will be at the scene of the crime.
Pillows were originally used mainly by wealthy men in Asia, and after were found in Ancient Egyptian tombs. The difficulty of sophisticated dyes and sewing techniques led to the development of pillows as an art form, with highly decorated pillows becoming prized commodities first in China and Persia and later in Medieval Europe. In Tudor England, pillows became widely-used; it was believed only women giving birth and weak men should use one. The Industrial Revolution saw the mass production of decorated textiles and decorated pillows. Traditional Chinese pillows are often hard boxes made from stone, wood, metal, or porcelain instead of stuffed fabric. Some ancient Egyptians slept on pillows made out of stone. (from Wikipedia)
