No chemicals are used in the growing, cultivation, cleaning, transportation or production of our fabulous range of kapok products.
Kapok fiber is moisture resistant therefore does not mould, it even floats! Kapok is dust mite resistant because Kapok has its own anti-bacterial properties given by nature, this also 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.
Kapok, a pale silky fibre, is almost magical. It is soft, smooth, hygienic, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, vegan and environmentally friendly. It is breathable, allows air circulation and has healthful benefits. Kapok, Ceiba pentandra (Bombacaceae), is one of natures miracle trees and can grow as tall as 150ft in its native environment.
The fibre itself comes from the seed pod of this 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 and timberland alive and healthy whilst provides sustainable low impact jobs within the forests.

Pillows of Kapok have been handed down between generations in Asian countries where it has been used as fill for mattress, bolsters and pillows for centuries. With correct care yours will last decades. There is no need to beat kapok, in fact beating breaks the natural fiber down faster. Kapok is happy to be pushed and moved into shape and loves being put into the sunshine to refluff.
