An added new way to extend the life of your awesome new pillow and never forget who made it for you!

Natural and organic pillows can be a big investment. The idea of spills or stains striking when you least expect them is enough to give you nightmares! But you don’t want your pillow to be covered in a synthetic waterproof casing then you’d be missing the whole point of sleeping on an all-natural and organic surface, right? Not anymore, now you can enjoy a restful night's sleep on your waterproof kapok pillow with a GOTS Certified Case, without the need for an additional pillow protector. 

What Makes it Waterproof? 

The waterproof fabric is made of 1 layer of 100% organic cotton knit and a 1mil non-GMO bio-based TPU film. This cornstarch-derived, biodegradable film makes the outer casing waterproof and protects against spills, stains, dust mites, and bed bugs, plus it is approved by GOTS and meets the GreenGuard Gold Standard.

Also, this fabric has undergone a pore test with results stating that if any pores exist, they are less than 1 micron which means that it is also a great barrier fabric to protect from dust. Very exciting!

Kapok is a natural fiber that comes from the Ceiba Tree. Kapok fibers come from the tree's seed pods, which shed seasonally, meaning there is no machinery required to harvest it. 

πŸ₯ Soft & fluffy, similar to down pillows (minus the animal products).

🌳 Made with vegan, sustainable fiber from the Ceiba Tree.

🌱 Hypoallergenic & Ethically sourced.

🌾 Encased in a Waterproof GOTS Certified Organic cotton fabric.

πŸ‘Œ Hand-stuffed to avoid lumps & customizable so you can find the perfect firmness.

Zippers for Custom Firmness: Not sure how firm you like your pillows? Get your pillow with a zippered case, and add and remove filling to suit your own preferences. Simply store any excess material in a moisture and pest-proof container, or order more kapok fiber from our Wholesale Fibers section.

The Waterproof Organic White Lotus Home fabric used in this product is GOTS Certified and Imported from Pakistan. 


  • Kapok fibers were in the all-natural life preservers used by G.I.s in World War II.
  • In the 1920s, explorers conquering Mt. Everest typically wore high-altitude boots with kapok insulation, leather outers, gaiters, and crampons
  • Kapok fibers are one-eighth (0.08) of the weight of cotton.
  • Kapok was one of the first ancient non-food plants cultivated across Southeast Asia.
  • Kapok was routinely used for pillows before goose down; Kapok is Retro Green.
  • HERE’S A GOOD ONE THAT SUPPORTS WHY KAPOK IS BETTER THAN GOOSE DOWN: In theory, as the down molt naturally, the birds shouldn't mind if it’s taken. The reality: goose down is the byproduct of keeping millions of birds around the world in cages, the lion’s share before they are slaughtered for cheap meat, or foie gras.  Therefore, buying down products carries the high risk of making you complicit in this industry. 
  • Kapok is a vegetable down. It’s been used for years in the maritime industry because of its buoyancy.  In the 1940s, all sorts of items - life belts, seating cushions, mattresses — were filled with Kapok, which is water repellant and enables it to keep afloat from 30 to 35 times its weight.  Ordinary cork can only support 5 times its weight. — article in Grey River Argus, 16-October 1907, which was published 107 years ago to the day!!!

Cleaning Your Pillows

We always recommend spot-cleaning our pillows β€” never saturate them with any liquid. We always recommend to our customers that they add one of our protective Waterproof 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.

I recommend this to everyone! High quality, I use the pillows as a side or back sleeper.

It was purchased as a gift for my father who is very satisfied with it. It took a bit to get used to it because of the different feel than the old pillow he had been using, but he mentioned that he has been sleeping a bit better since using it.
Do you still put a pillow cover over these if they are waterproof and washable?
Most people do put a pillowcase on their pillow for added protection so that they can remove that and wash the case ever so often or so that it pairs with the rest of their sheets or duvets.
