Also known as Dutch wives or Sailors Comforts these non-toxic, portable, elegant pillows help alleviate back pain while sleeping and encourage an aligned body allowing restorative sleep. No chemicals are used in the growing, cultivation, cleaning, transportation or production of our fantastic range.

Filled with environmentally friendly sustainable Kapok fiber these bolsters work as a sleeping aid and greatly assist pregnant women by offering relief from the effects of gravity. Side sleeping can collapse the shoulders and hips. But when hugging this cylindrical pillow, the shoulders and chest are kept open and wide. By throwing your leg over the bolster and straightening your bottom leg the pillow keeps the hips wide and in line with the knees reducing spinal twist whilst sleeping. The fetal curl is the best sleeping position according to some chiropractors.

If using a full length body pillow for sleeping it is recommended to place your head on a separate pillow and not on the body pillow. Placing the head on the body pillow, as shown on some websites, will result in a stiff neck as it pushes the neck out of alignment.

Your bolster is filled with appx. 2100g of freshly cleaned kapok inside a calico inner. Removable drawstring covers are optional, let us know when ordering if you do not want a cover and we will adjust the price accordingly. Because Kapok is a natural fiber slight compaction will occur over time but Kapok will ‘Fluff up’ by being placed in direct sunlight. Monthly is preferable but not critical.

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.
