Description

Ultra Clean Fabrication

We make all of our products in a very clean environment, so you can feel safe if you have severe allergies.

The perfect blend of softness and support. We designed our natural latex/kapok pillows so you can have the best of both worlds. These pillows are so easy to care for and feel so amazing. They are easily malleable to put the stuffing just where I need it. I can wrap it around my head, I can push it up under my shoulder, I can create a nose hole when I sleep on my stomach (I know, bad me).

Even better, I can machine wash and dry these occasionally so they last 20 times as long as regular synthetic pillows. They do take 2 dryer cycles to dry completely, but they come out so clean. I wash them every few months.

Our handmade kapok/latex pillows offer a natural pillow alternative that’s 100% customizable, sustainable, and perfect for a great nights sleep

Encased in our premium organic cotton damask and available in a huge range of sizes, you can’t go wrong if you want a silky soft feel but also need support. And because we use damask instead of sateen, you can machine wash and dry ours.

I use these also whenever I travel, because they are completely washable, and I can get that icky hotel room smell out.
Why Kapok Fiber
Kapok is a natural fiber that comes from the Ceiba Tree in Central America. Kapok fibers come from the trees seed pods, which shed seasonally, meaning there is no machinery required to harvest it.
With a silky and fluffy consistency, kapok has the benefits of being fluffy like down, but plant-based like cotton, making it a wonderful vegan down alternative.
🐥 Soft & fluffy, similar to down pillows (minus the animal products)
🌳 Made with vegan, sustainable fiber from the Ceiba Tree
🌱 Hypoallergenic & Ethically sourced
🌾 Encased in luxurious GOTS Certified Organic Cotton Damask
👌 Hand-stuffed to avoid lumps & customizable so you can find the perfect firmness
Zippers for Custom Firmness
Not sure how firm you like your pillows? Get your pillow with a zippered outer, and add and remove filling to suit your own preferences. Simply store any excess material in a moisture and pest-proof container, or order more kapok or latex fiber from us.

HISTORY OF KAPOK
• Kapok fibers were in the all-natural life preservers used by G.I.s in World War II.
• In the 1920, explorers conquering Mt. Everest typically wore high-altitude boots with kapok insulation, leather outers, gaiters and crampons
• Kapok fibers are one eight (0.08) the weight of cotton.
• Kapok was one of the first ancient non-food plants cultivated across Southeast Asia.
• Kapok was routinely used for pillows before goose down; Kapok is Retro Green.
• HERE’S A GOOD ONE THAT SUPPORTS WHY KAPOK IS BETTER THAN GOOSE DOWN:
o In theory, as the down moult naturally, the birds shouldn’t mind if it’s taken. The reality: goose down is the byproduct of keeping millions of birds around the world in cages, the lion’s share before they are slaughtered for cheap meat, or foie gras. Therefore, buying down products carries the high risk of making you complicit in this industry.
• Kapok is a vegetable down. It’s been used for years in the maritime industry because of its buoyancy. In the 1940s, all sorts of items – life belts, seating cushions, mattresses — were filled with Kapok, which is water repellant and enables it to keep afloat from 30 to 35 times its weight. Ordinary cork can only support 5 times its weight. — article in Grey River Argus, 16-October 1907!!!
Why Natural Latex?
SAFE: Natural Latex is a product from Mother Nature, produced from the sap of the rubber tree.
HEALTHY: The latex sap from the rubber tree contains antibacterial compounds, a trait that is transferred to our latex products. Furthermore, latex sap is dust mite resistant by nature.
ENVIRONMENTAL: Tapping a rubber tree to collect the sap will not kill the tree so they continue to remove carbon dioxide from the air for many years to come. Our products do not add to the World`s mountains of trash. Latex products last longer than other types of products and they are completely biodegradable at the end of their life cycle.
SUPPORT: The unique, nonlinear compression profile of a rubber cell makes heavier parts of the body sink in while lighter areas are still supported. This optimal alignment of the body keeps the pain away and improves blood circulation.

Because we use latex with our kapok, it retains most of its plumpness. You can put in a low heat dryer to plump it up.
