About Airweave Inc.

Airweave was born from a desire to do things differently when President & CEO Motokuni Takaoka took over his uncle’s fishing line company. The Stanford School of Engineering graduate experimented with different applications of the machinery and resin fiber to create the first airfiber® prototype and shipped the first mattress topper in 2007. Airweave has since expanded to a range of bedding products in Japan, debuted their first mattress in 2016 in the United States, and aims to be recognized as a global sleep solution brand.
