Which kapok pillow should I choose?
You can choose between bamboo or cotton outer shells for your kapok pillow, and people often ask me "How can I chose a pillow without feeling it first?". There are two answers. First they are adjustable so the hight of the pillow is not important, you can make your pillow just the right hight for you. Secondly if you like a soft pillow choose bamboo, if you like a firm pillow choose cotton (although having said that you can make a bamboo kapok pillow firm if you add enough kapok).
Bamboo fabric is thicker and heavier than standard cotton, yet soft, silky and known for it's ability to wick away heat and anti bacterial qualities. Because the bamboo fabric is slightly stretchy, a kapok pillow with a bamboo outer shell means that your kapok pillow is soft and comfortable from the first nights sleep, yet still supportive and malleable. Cool in summer and warm in winter.
The kapok pillow with the cotton outer shell is firmer than with bamboo, yet still comfortable and malleable. Our cotton pillow shells are gorgeous unbleached twill. Cotton twill is thicker and softer than standard cotton weaves which means your kapok pillows is more durable and comfortable.
So if you like a softer pillow choose bamboo, if you like a firmer pillow choose cotton.
Both pillows are adjustable via the hidden zip.
Eco Credentials and Superior Comfort
Both the bamboo and cotton pillow shells are certified organic by GOTS and OEKO-TEX Standard 100. The kapok is naturally organic and not treated with any chemicals at any stage.
The pillow shells are fully adjustable with a 22cm hidden zip on the short end of the pillow, so it doesn't impede your sleeping comfort.
Kapok pillows are cost effective because the kapok repels dust mites and mildew, remaining clean and pure for decades. You can purchase new pillow shells and kapok to top up from time to time.
