Am I? by Pola Augustynowicz
An inspiration to create Am I? bedding, designed by Pola Augustynowicz for the FOONKA® brand, was the theme of dreams. The artist is interested in dreams and the world that opens before us when we close our eyes, which is also the inspiration for many of her works. A dream, namely the image of what is hidden in the back of our minds, is told with the language of our subconsciousness. “Although some symbols appearing in dreams can be common to everyone, they can also be interpreted through the prism of one’s own experience,” says Pola. The artist placed several of such symbols in her design, they are associated with the outline of a female figure. The full title of the work: “Am I the girl you dreamed about?” It Is the question asked by the artist, and her illustration perfectly reflects what these words convey.
This project is the second one from a new collection of FOONKA® bedding that is going to introduce the customers to the art of modern illustrators, painters and designers.
100% designed and made in Poland EU
The product is made mainly with quality in mind. The fabric is 100% satin cotton weaved and printed in Łódź in compliance with the most stringent requirements of the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certificate. It is soft and durable, and the photorealistic print renders every detail and shade remarkably accurate.
Behind each of our designs there is a different story, and each of them holds its own original surprises. Following the zero waste rule, we try to limit the amount of produced waste to the minimum. That is why every our product is cut out from the fabric randomly to save on scrap. It is extremely difficult to find two identical pillow cases or tablecloths with the same elements placed in the same spots.

Keeping a buckwheat pillow clean does not differ from the cleaning method used in the case of traditional pillows. You can wash the pillowcase and the insert cover after emptying the hull. If you spill water over the pillow, you can dry buckwheat by putting it on a paper or other surface. Buckwheat itself should not be cleaned.
Pillows with buckwheat hull retain their properties for about 10 years. It is difficult to find a similar life-span among traditional pillows which we replace every several years. What is more, a buckwheat pillow rustles. It reminds of the sound of falling grains. Pure nature.
The cover is fastened by means of a subtle hidden zip fastener. You can always take if off and wash it, best in the temperature of 40°C.
