  • Our kapok pillows are now made with 100% organic casing and the kapok is harvested in the rainforest, protecting the life ways and ecosystems of indigenous people, and hand-stuffed in the USA to make the most eco-friendly pillows on the market. 
  • Our luxurious sateen is spun in the USA from 100% USDA-certified organic cotton yarn and handmade in our NJ manufacturing location.
  • Kapok, a fiber extracted from the seed pod of the kapok tree, provides the baby soft touch and comfort of down, while offering a natural alternative to the cruelty involved in extracting feathers from our winged friends. 
  • Kapok pillows mold for your support and pleasure. 
  • White Lotus Home believes kapok makes the best pillows in the world.

More about kapok (Ceiba pentandra), is also called Java cotton, ceiba, or Java kapok,  seed-hair fibre obtained from the fruit of the kapok tree or the kapok tree itself. Is great that it is a tree that will keep on and on providing more kapok naturally. The kapok is a huge tree of the tropical forest canopy and emergent layer. The tree is found throughout the tropics, the kapok is native to the New World and to Africa and at one point it was transported to Asia, where it is cultivated for its fibre, or floss. The kapok’s huge buttressed trunk tapers upward to an almost horizontal, spreading crown where large, compound leaves are made up of five to eight long, narrow leaflets. In full sun, the kapok can grow up to 13 fee per year, thats a lot of natural groth. The tree eventually reaches over 160 feet. The kapok is deciduous, dropping its foliage after seasonal rainy periods. No need to use any machinery or chemicals to remove it! Yeah!! That what we love about it at White Lotus Home. Flowering occurs when the tree is leafless, thereby improving access for the bats that feed on the sugar-laden nectar of kapok blossoms. In doing so, the bats unwittingly pollinate the tree’s flowers. The flowers open at night and have five petals that are white or pink on the outside. Only a few flowers on a given branch will open on any particular night during the two or three weeks that the tree blooms. So cool that is does all of this on its own. We love using kapok. 


  • We offer our pillows in three different levels of firmness: soft, medium, and firm. 
  • We also offer our pillows with an optional zipper.  If you are unsure of which firmness to get, we recommend you choose a firm pillow with a zipper.  This allows you to remove or add the pillow fiber filling (kapok, cotton, wool, buckwheat) to your liking. 
  • Many pillows need to be replaced after 6-12 months due to a loss in firmness; if you have a pillow with a zipper and you have the fibers that you purchased or removed, you can add them back over time to maintain your preferred level of comfort. 
  • We also sell our fibers in various weights so you can keep your pillows at the right firmness for years to come.  For fiber storage, we recommend you recycle the bag you received your pillows in and store your fibers there, ideally in a cool and dry location.
  • NOTE: Because White Lotus Home does not add perfumes, formaldehyde, or dyes to our natural fibers and materials, some of our items will retain their natural scent. Samples of our fibers are available for free by contacting our sales department by email: sales@whitelotushome.com or by calling 732-828-2111.

Cleaning Your Pillows

We always recommend spot cleaning our pillows — never saturate them with any liquid. We always recommend to our customers that they add one of our protective Barrier Cloth pillow covers, to ensure spills never get out of hand.

To spot clean, we suggest a mild solution of three parts water to one part vinegar in a spray bottle, but for particularly stubborn spills, a mild detergent is perfectly fine to add to the bottle as well.

Always ensure your pillow is thoroughly dried after a spot cleaning, either by using a hair dryer or placing it in the sun to air out.

Pillow Type:Bed Pillow
Pillow Fill:Kapok

I have been using Kapok pillows for years and I love these pillows.\nThere is exactly enough fill in them and they are so much better than down or any other content.
I bought the product for my mother in law who has always prized your kapok pillows.
Really love the pillow but it went flat very quickly (like within a week) and developed lumps. Seems well-made but the filling isn't holding up as well as I would like. Probably will not purchase another.
If you're used to sleeping on cheap foam pillows, you'll be incredibly happy with these! My husband, myself and our kids all have kapok pillows. While at first they seemed a little firm, they've become very comfortable and provide good, even neck support. There is no chemical smell and they are well made. I am happy to support this local, green company.
December 2016 Marissa Patti In Burlington, VT we are lucky enough to have a retailer in town so I can try all the White Lotus Home Products. My favorites are the kapok pillows and the wool wrapped latex mattress. Kapok is so soft and silky! It's a very special tree that produces an amazing fiber. I am waiting for some new guest cots to arrive that will be going into a DIY pull out couch. So excited!
We have been using our new Kapok pillows for a week and are very happy with the support and comfort they provide. We have 1 standard medium fill and 1 soft contour with zipper. (see review for contour pillows in contour pillow section) The standard pillow appeared much bigger/deeper than what we are use to. To our surprise it was very comfortable and so far not too firm as some have suggested. This could change over time as the kapok fibers compress. Getting the zipper option allows for ease in adjusting both the amount of and fluffing of the fiber. Giving the pillow a good shake can help too! The outer cotton shell is a very good quality fabric and construction. We have tried various materials in pillows at different price points. We try to avoid synthetic materials. There was no off gassing evident at all. These are the best pillows so far! We hope they last as it has been a long search to get the right product to meet our needs. Although we experienced some delivery problems initially White Lotus Home were very prompt in addressing the problem and they were an absolute pleasure to do business with from my initial order on. We look forward to gradually replacing all of our pillows with their Kapok products!
I have been sleeping on a wool pillow for about 7 years and a few months ago purchased a Kapok pillow from here. I was impressed from the first night. It was comfortable right away and has not let me down yet. I do find that the materials compress but with a simple fluff before I lay down for the night, the pillow is right back to how it was the first night. I recommend getting the one with the zipper so you can adjust the amount of material inside. The medium has been perfect for my 8 year old son and myself. I got the firm for my husband and it's a touch too firm so we are able to take little out and make it just right (before he was sleeping on about 3 pillows). I highly recommend this pillow and especially this company who is a pleasure to work with.
Have been using kopak pillows for about 10 years. This is our third one. It is easy to maintain and stays fresh even after 10 years. Our first one has shrunk over the past 10 years but we shouldn't have used it for that long anyway. It is soft, supportive, and conform to the shape of our necks. "Malleable" as buckwheat pillows but much softer. It keeps the head warm but does not overheat the back of the head as polyester ones. It is wonderful for all seasons.
Love our kapok pillows. We always order another one when they are on sale. Every bed in the house now has at least 2 and they are so comfy.
love my kapok pillows. warm soft natural and loving support
I love me bed! My mattress is a futon, 7 inch, organic cotton, with a thin mattress filled with wool on top. And my latest addition, two Kapok filled pillows! They are so soft and still supportive. In the winter they’re extra good because they keep my head warm. I got two, which I didn’t need but I’m really glad I did.
