Taiga Semikawa Partners with Airweave

Japanese golfer Taiga Semikawa and airweave, inc., the top-selling brand of premium bedding toppers and pillows in Japan, have entered a one-year partnership, brokered by global sports marketing agency SPORTFIVE.

Under the agreement, Taiga Semikawa, who is a three-time Japan Tour winner following his recent win at the Kansai Open Golf Championship, will endorse airweave’s range of sleep solution products and be featured in airweave’s global marketing and advertising initiatives.

Founded in 2007, airweave has been developing premium bedding toppers that feature a highly resilient structure and an ergonomic, breathable design in which air comprises 90 percent of the product’s proprietary airfiber material. Offering superior and consistent quality sleep, airweave has become a popular choice among top amateur and professional athletes worldwide for aiding their recovery process and enhancing athletic performance. The Japanese bedding brand has also partnered with and supplied its products to major international sporting events, including the Tokyo 2020 and Paris 2024 Olympic Games, further solidifying its position as a trusted brand in the sporting community.

Initially designed with high-performance athletes in mind, airweave has since gained popularity among everyday consumers seeking a better night’s sleep. With expansions to other regions such as China, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the U.S., airweave aims to be recognised as a global sleep solution brand with innovative products for both home and travel use.

As we continue our legacy of supporting top athletes, especially the country’s rising stars, through our revolutionary bedding and sleep solutions, we are honoured to have Taiga representing airweave.

Taiga Semikawa adds, “I am thrilled to be an ambassador of airweave. As an athlete, I know that a perfect night’s sleep is crucial to the recovery process and with airweave’s focus on innovation and scientific research around sleep products, I am assured that my recovery routine will be well taken care of so I can stay at the top of my game.”
