Kapok, also known as Java Cotton, is today's most sustainable fiber in the fashion and bedding market. They grow on trees and are similar to seeds. A skin-like layer on the outside with cottony filaments burst from inside.
During Kapok's growth phase, no pesticides or insecticides are needed. Kapok can grow on infertile land with a well-developed root system because of its unique water retention and soil consolidation function. It can effectively prevent and control rocky desertification. While Eucalyptus would absorb large amounts of groundwater and soil nutrients, causing desertification. From Kapok's harvest to the end of its life cycle, no harmful human footprint is left behind. Kapok is 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
Each Kapok Down Duvet consists of 30% Kapok filling because of its unmatched sustainable properties, as well as the practical features it offers that help provides a good night's rest.
Being tremendously soft and silky, Kapok is moisture-resistant and quick-drying, so you don't have to worry about those unwanted bed sweats anymore. It is a lightweight filling (an eighth lighter than cotton), and because the fibers are hollow, they act as thermo-regulators, adapting to your body temperature while you sleep to help keep you warm. Because Kapok is dust mite resistant and anti-bacterial, our Kapok Down duvets make an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies.
