Kapok is one of the few sustainable rainforest crops. Historically used by gurus, saints and masters kapok represented a prized possession and they marvelled at its unique characteristics such as its ability to shape to the body then rebound to its original fluffy shape because of its fibrous air-filled tubes, it even floats! In Mayan myths the Kapok tree was sacred. They believed that the souls of the dead would climb into the branches which reached up and delivered them to heaven.
