Natural (Shredded) Rubber Pillow
This is our most versatile pillow. Because it is made from shredded natural rubber, it is fully washable. The loft is fully adjustable without taking the pillow apart. You can move the natural rubber just as you would a buckwheat-hull pillow, but this pillow has a softer feel. The cover is organic cotton, closed with a brass zipper.
About Natural Rubber
Natural rubber is absorbent and resilient contributing to excellent heat and moisture regulation.
The rubber is harvested by tapping the milk (sap) of Hevea brasiliensis (the common rubber tree). No herbicides are used in these operations. It's a little known fact that Hevea milk contains an antibacterial substance that is a natural dust-mite repellent.
The Hevea milk is processed close to the plantations because the raw product destabilizes when kept too long. Other manufacturers avoid the problem by adding chemicals. To bring you the purest products possible means that the rubber milk is harvested in the morning, molded into sheets by mid-afternoon and is soon shipped to our Canadian mattress plant. Having the rubber manufactured where the trees' milk is harvested helps to sustain the local economy. Jobs are created without depleting the natural resources of the countrya kindness to ourselves and the planet.
