Wonderful long pillow in elephant design red 50 cm
These colourful cushions will bring good mood into your rooms. A wide range of colours makes it possible to find the right cushion for every style of furnishing. In the middle of the mostly two-coloured cushion there is an elephant pattern, which gives Asian furnished rooms the perfect finishing touch. But they are not only a design element. Elephants play an important role in Thai culture, as you can read in our encyclopaedia.
A special filling from kapok
These long pillows are filled with the natural fibre kapok. This is one of the lightest hollow fibres available worldwide. It has very good moisture and heat-regulating properties. The pillow is very densely filled with kapok. This creates a relatively firm support cushion on which it can still be comfortably laid.
A suitable pillow for allergy sufferers
For people allergic to house dust, this support cushion with kapok filling is a great alternative to synthetic cushion fillings. This is due to its chemical composition, which is similar to that of wood. Lingin ensures stability and durability in the wood fibre and kapok fibre and, when dry, is not attacked by bacteria, plants or fungi. In addition, kapok, unlike other plant fibres such as cotton, is low in cellulose and water-repellent. The kapok pillow stays dry even while sleeping and does not provide a breeding ground for moths, spores and germs. House dust mites have no habitat in the Thai pillow with kapok filling. That is why kapok pillows can be described as allergy-friendly.
Processing of the Kapok pillow from Thailand
The colourful rectangular cushion measuring 50 x 17 x 12 cm is visually composed of six fabric snakes. In fact, however, it is a supporting cushion that was filled with kapok in one piece. Only the surface has been quilted to increase shape stability and comfort. The handmade kapok pillow deliberately does not have a disturbing zip.
