KAPOK & CARE


WHY WE LOVE KAPOK 

The organic kapok fiber is the fluff from the seed pod of the Ceiba tree or the ‘silk cotton’ tree, which grows in the rainforests of Asia. The pods are harvested without harming the trees which means kapok is clean, organic and almost CO2 neutral. Grown in the wild kapok is free from chemicals and fertilizers, it is hypoallergenic and as soft as goose down.
Kapok grows in capsules on huge trees, which can be more than 70 meters high and carry more than 3,000 capsules. 
Kapok is in many countries seen as holy trees. The Mayaer calls the kapok tree for “the world tree”. Therefore, the tree was also allowed to stay during the clearings of the tropical rainforests.
Kapok is the lightest natural fiber in the world, about 6 times lighter than cotton. The light fibers gives the kapok a silky handfeel. Kapok were used as filling in mattresses and lifejackets.
All processing and production is done manually, and there are no waste products.

We recommend that you do not wash your kapok product. Instead we suggest you hang it outside, preferably on a clear, frosty day. Remove any spots with water only and if really needed you can dry clean it - but please think twice as our environment absolutely does not like it.
