Kapok Pillows feel like silk! Our kapok pillows come from the flower of a tall fruit tree - ceiba pentandra. This fiber is very similar to silk making the pillow feel soft inside. It compresses easily and rebounds slowly, preventing pressure on the ear. Covered in our luxurious European Organic Cotton Damask for an attractive and durable pillow. Fiber is light, buoyant, resilient, and resistant to water.
Our kapok pillows with the damask outer are machine washable and dryable (our elegant Damask Organic Cotton outer will shrink about 5% when washed - air dry to lessen shrinkage I find it easier to prevent the need for washing by double pillow casing, or using a barrier cover.
Synthetic pillow fill, the most common pillows you find in stores, is often Polyester.
So what is Polyester?
From the free dictionary by Farlex: pol·y·es·ter
n. 1. Any of numerous synthetic polymers produced chiefly by reaction of dicarboxylic acids with dihydric alcohols and used primarily as light, strong, weather-resistant resins in boat hulls, textile fibers, adhesives, and molded parts.
With a Polyester filled pillow, all night long you are breathing these chemicals. And even absorbing them thru your skin. Now imagine laying your head down for the night on an all natural pillow and pillow covering. Your body has a better chance of recovering from unavoidable exposures you may encounter all day long.
