Whether you're preparing for the new school year or replacing your tried-and-true favorites, now is the perfect time to stock up on handcrafted pillows by White Lotus Home!

How to Choose a Natural Pillow...

The best inner fill for your needs would depend on your comfort level. Do you enjoy a firm, dense pillow, or something fluffy and giving? Do you look for a pillow with a low profile? Do you like the feel of a traditional pillow, or are you open to organic buckwheat? Each fiber has its own "personality", and our Organic Bedding Professionals are here to help you find your best match.

Let's find a match...

Kapok

Our Kapok pillows are our number-one best-seller! Due to the luxurious feel of the fiber, these universally beloved pillows work well for a wide range of individuals, from those who prefer something soft and giving to those who need some support from their sleep surface.

Kapok is a vegan, sustainable fiber from the ceiba tree that offers a similar feel to down. Unlike feathers and down, however, Kapok has many hypoallergenic properties and ethically sourced. In our experience, many individuals with chemical sensitivities, as well as those with physical challenges, do well with Kapok pillows.


Organic Cotton

Our Organic Cotton pillows offer a dense, even surface. Cotton pillows are breathable and work well for those who prefer a firm-yet-supportive feel.


Wool

Our Wool Pillows are wonderful for those who want an even surface like cotton but the fluffiness of kapok. Those with allergies are quick to pick wool, as the fiber itself is naturally dust-mite resistant. Our pure, virgin wool is soft, resilient, and naturally regulates body temperature.

Do note that due to the nature of the fiber, wool may compress with time. Therefore, we strongly encourage our customers to add a zipper to their wool pillow, as this can extend the lifespan of the product.


Organic Buckwheat & BuckWool

Our Organic Buckwheat and Buckwool pillows utilize the three-cornered hull of the buckwheat seed in a pillow that is firm yet supportive. The hulls allow air to flow through the pillow, keeping your head cool and dry.

The beanbag-like fill contours to the head and neck, providing excellent support. While certainly a different "feel" from conventionally fluffy pillows, many of our customers with neck and back issues have found success with our Buckwheat and Buckwool pillows!


Shredded Latex

Our Shredded Latex pillows are temperature-neutral, dust mite resistant, and naturally antimicrobial. Our natural Dunlop latex provides ample neck and head support without causing overheating. Unlike many other fibers, the latex holds its shape for many years without harboring allergens.


Change it up!

All of our pillows are offered with or without a zipper. If you are unsure of which firmness to purchase, we recommend you select pillow with a zipper. The zipper allows you to adjust the inner fibers to reach your own personal comfort level, as you can add or remove filling to your liking.

Many pillows, such as cotton and wool, may compress over time: purchasing a pillow with a zipper allows you to add fibers back over time to maintain your preferred level of comfort. Others, such as kapok, may absorb the healthy oils from your face and hair and may benefit from the occasional manual readjustment. Consider it insurance for your bedding!

What are the Benefits of a Firm Mattress?

Firm is Good for You!
People who have migrated to a firm mattress can usually offer a long list of reasons for doing so. But chiropractors, doctors and other medical professionals also tout the benefits of spending seven or eight hours a night resting on a firm mattress. These include:
  • Superior comfort. You can never have too much support, but you can always have too little support. This is especially true for older people and those with back, neck or joint problems.
  • Proper alignment of the spine. Proper posture matters, even during sleep. If your backbone is all out of whack for eight hours, it can be hard to function normally the next day. A firm mattress does a better job of keeping nicely aligned so you can get through the day without a lot of stress or strain.
  • Deeper rest. The human body can’t fully rest on a soft or sagging mattress, because it’s always trying to compensate for the unorthodox positions. And it’s not just the spine that requires excellent posture. Even your limbs, neck and other body parts need a comfy, cozy retreat for a great night’s sleep.
  • Proper weight distribution. Not enough support means that your body will eventually sag in one direction, which is a leading cause of misalignment in joints and muscles.
  • Ongoing health benefits. There’s an axiom in the sleep industry that “proper rest = proper health.” During sleep, your body does a hundred different things to repair and rejuvenate. Cells are restored. Human growth hormone gets activated. Insulin levels are reduced. Without a firm mattress to give deep rest, you’re missing out on these important health benefits every night.

HIGHLAND PARK, NJ –  An increasing number of consumers are concerned about indoor air quality and toxic chemicals in mattress foams, glues, and fire retardant substances.  


Conventional mattresses typically contain petrochemicals, fire retardants, plastics or vinyl. This chemical cocktail is linked to a host of health maladies, such as allergies and respiratory problems.  This is particularly so with crib mattresses.

Here are 10 reasons why you should sleep on an organic cotton filled mattress:  

  1. Organic mattresses are made with materials found in nature, resources that encourage sustainable farming throughout the world: cotton grown without pesticides and wool from sheep raised on chemical free farms.
  2. Standard industry mattresses are made from man-made materials, most commonly derived from petrochemicals.

  3. Petrochemicals are derived from oil.

  4. Oil contains toxins.

  5. Oil is not a renewable resource.

  6. Oil is highly flammable.

  7. Studies have raised concerns about the long-term health effects petrochemical bedding materials may have on humans.

  8. If you sleep on a memory foam mattress, you're spending a third of your life sleeping on an oil-based product.

  9. All mattresses sold in the U.S. have to meet the U.S. Fire Code burn test. Mattresses need to be treated so they don't ignite. However, the chemicals used to treat mattresses to make them flame proof are highly suspect.

  10. Our skin absorbs toxins, our lungs breathe in airborne vapors.  Do you really trust the mattress industry when they tell you it's safe to sleep on their materials?


White Lotus Home, a manufacturer of natural and organic cotton mattresses, bedding and pillows,  handcrafts in the USA, a GOTS and USDA certified organic cotton filled mattress  This mattress is only wrapped with a natural layer of pure wool, sourced in the USA, to provide the fire retardant qualities your mattress requires.  Do you prefer no wool in your mattress?  No problem, just supply a prescription from your primary care physician, stating you require a chemical free mattress and this mattress can be handcrafted for you with no wool wrapping.  Do you prefer a firm mattress?  Then the Organic Cotton and Wool Boulder Mattress may be your choice.  It is handcrafted with extra layers of certified organic cotton and twice as many tuftings in comparison to White Lotus Homes’ standard mattresses to provide a firmer, supportive surface.  You also have the option of no wool, by providing your doctor's note.  This firm mattress is popular for those that have slept on mattresses while living in Japan and India.  Visit their online store for links to videos on how they manufacture in the USA.
