What is a "Dakimakura?"
A Dakimakura is a large body pillow intended to assist one in sleeping on their side by providing support to the legs and arms. Because this makes one look like they are hugging the pillow, in Japan, it has become traditional to print cute, sexy or popular anime characters on them. Furry Dakimakura is currently the only company which is printing and selling furry characters exclusively.
How are your Dakimakura made?
Each Dakimakura we sell is printed as a large single sheet using a fabric printer, then stitched together using an industrial sewing machine. They are individually constructed by private contractors in Hong Kong who do piece work and individual orders for the major Japanese producers. This means that you get the same high quality product from us as you do from Japanese Dakimakura producers.
What exactly do you sell?
We sell the Dakimakura (i.e. pillowcase itself) and nothing else. The pillow cases are 50cmx150cm and can be stuffed using three standard American sized pillows or one Japanese style body pillow. Because these items are large and difficult to ship, we do not stock them, and encourage you to purchase them locally, where prices will be lower than anything we could reasonably offer.
How do I take care of my Dakimakura?
Because we only hire companies that use high quality fabrics and inks, our Dakimakura are designed to last for a very long time and are machine washable. Wash them as you would delicate machine washables, and use color-safe detergents. NEVER use bleach. Hang to dry.
I would like to see Dakimakura featuring [Character]. Is that possible?
We do not accept unsolicited submissions or requests. Sorry!
What can't you feature?
Furry Dakimakura cannot feature "sexually explicit" art (sex acts, masturbation, sexual fluids - but nudity is OK! Just keep it R-Rated!), photographs/real life nudes or underage characters engaging in sex acts, posing in the nude, or otherwise not having clothes on. Please respect our need to stay within the law.
