HEAVENLY HEAD PILLOW - We are using a new 'blowing' technique that adds an extra dimension of comfort to our already heavenly head pillows. You are welcome to request low, medium or high loft. Our standard fill of 625grams is high loft and changes as you mould the pillow to your prefered shape combined with natural compaction. Remember Kapok loves to be put out into the sunshine every few weeks to 'puff' back up.

At last a pillow that is soft yet supportive that is a wonderful lightweight alternative to toxic synthetics. Naturally organic Kapok is also malleable and able to be shaped to the contours of your head. Your pillow will return to its shape simply by being puffed up. Kapok is the most environmentally friendly, economical, fair trade natural eco fiber fill.
Kapok fiber is moisture resistant and it does not mould. It has its own anti-bacterial properties given by nature which gives Kapok its hypo-allergenic status. Kapok is firmer than sponge yet soft because of its hollow fibers.
Slight compaction will occur over time but Kapok will ‘Fluff up’ by being placed in direct sunlight or in a dryer on low. Fortnightly is preferable but not critical. Care instructions on label.
There is no need to beat kapok, in fact beating breaks-down the natural fiber faster. Kapok is happy to be pushed and moved into shape and then put into the sunshine to refluff.

You can adjust the amount of fill in your pillow by unpicking the stitched opening and removing the fiber and re-sewing the seam. Keep your Kapok aside in a clip-lock bag or jar in case you want to add it again in the future. Or you can use it to stuff an environmentally friendly doll or line a beanie, gloves or neck warmer for thermal protection.

Kapok, a pale silky fibre, is almost magical. It is soft, smooth, hygienic, non-toxic, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly. It is breathable, allows air circulation and has healthful benefits. It can be reused for generations, without developing mould or decaying. Kapok, Ceiba pentandra (Bombacaceae), is a tree as tall as 150ft in its native environment. The fibre itself comes from the seed pod of the majestic kapok tree. Much of the world’s kapok is wild harvested by locals therefore chemicals are not needed nor is the ground tilled in order to harvest its bounty, this helps keep the forest alive and healthy and provides sustainable jobs within the forests.
