While plenty of pillow manufacturers use synthetic materials such as memory foam, nylon, and polyester, we opt for the natural route. Our pillows are covered in certified organic cotton casings with your choice of fill. This article though will focus on our most popular pillow fill: organic kapok.
Keep reading to learn about this comfy fiber you’re sure to love.
What is Kapok?
Kapok is a buoyant, cotton-like fiber that grows from the ceiba tree in tropical climates. It’s incredibly soft and luxurious, and definitely unique when comparing it to other pillow fills.
Kapok is the perfect plant-based alternative to down since it has that same fluffy feel without the feathers.
Kapok is light and airy, making you feel like your head is resting on a pillowy cloud. It’s a best-seller of ours because of its gentle softness.
This pillow is also customizable, meaning that it comes overstuffed with two pounds of organic kapok. We intentionally overstuff our pillows so that our customers can have plenty of fill to work with.
Unzip the inner casing and remove as much kapok as you’d like. This allows you to adjust the height and overall feel of the pillow.
We recommend saving the excess kapok fill for later since kapok does slightly compress over time.
