The Original PWAH being modelled by a woman

The Original P.W.A.H®

The first meaningful alteration to the pillow in thousands of years  – The Original Pillow with a Hole’s unique design works by relieving pressure on the ear.

It has many uses. If you believe protecting your ear at night will help you, this pillow is for you.

We believe that just because you’re in pain, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for cheap medical style bedding.

So treat yourself to this luxurious PWAH® and find out why it will soon become “Your Ear’s Best Friend®”

The firmness and height of this ear pillow are completely adjustable and it is hand made entirely in England.


The Original P.W.A.H® helps you to:

Resolve ear pressure sores  – CNH typically resolves itself in a matter of weeks.

Sleep with troublesome ear piercings.

Sleep with earplugs, headphones or earphones.

Sleep with hearing aids.

Relieve certain types of tinnitus. Especially pulsatile tinnitus.

Facilitating post-operative healing.


These pillows were born from personal experience and necessity.

We truly hope you get as much relief from them as we have.

What’s included?

This pillow can be purchased either with or without a pillowcase. Additional pillowcases are available separately.

How best to use:

The Original P.W.A.H® is versatile and can be used as a standalone pillow. However, we find for best results it is best used on top of your regular pillow.

Firmness and filling:

Our coil fibre is softer than memory foam and completely odourless. This is a premium filling made of small coils of fibre that allow air to pass through, producing loft and comfort. This makes for a plump pillow with a medium to firm feel.

It is similar in feel to feather down, yet it is cruelty free and hypoallergenic, so it is perfect for people with allergies.

We also offer British Wool as an environmentally friendly alternative.

The firmness of the Original P.W.A.H® can be easily adjusted using our integrated super high-quality “YKK” brand zip.


For full dimensions please see ‘additional information.’


We are happy to tell you that all of our plastic packaging is recyclable and our informational insert is made from recycled cardboard.

Where is it made?

As with all of our products, this is made entirely in England in the style of a true cottage industry.

All of our stuffing is made in Yorkshire, England, on machines built in 1952!

Q: Which is more suitable for me? An Original PWAH® or a PWAH V2®?
A: If you like to sleep with two pillows, then The Original PWAH is a great choice because it works best sat atop your existing pillow. Or, if you’re looking for a smaller pillow, then again The Original PWAH would be the most suitable. However, if you’re looking for a larger pillow, or like to sleep with only one pillow, then The PWAH V2 is the better option.

Q: What is the firmness of this pillow? 
A: The firmness of our pillows is completely adjustable by adding or removing stuffing. This can be achieved by using the integrated “YKK” brand zip. We stuff them to a medium firmness as it is better to put too much in than not enough. If you need more stuffing, please contact us and we can send some along to you.
