The comfort of wool
Wool breathes and regulates moisture, in all seasons. It allows a healthy sleep without perspiration nor allergies. Without static charges that attract dust and mildly abrasive, it is naturally a bad ground for dust-mites, non-allergenic, it is also a natural fire retardant.
Originating from mid-mountain sheep raised in the open air in southern Serbia, our wool is untreated, with a neutral odor, washed very carefully and ecologically with non-calcareous spring water. It is carded and put into the form of beads by a mechanical process. All the wool work is done in the south of Serbia.
The comfort of latex
Unlike wool, latex flakes have high resilience which allows them to return to their original shape after compression. They give lasting volume and puffiness to the pillow. Our latex is GOLS certified (Global Organic Latex Standard) which is the standard of organic latex, as GOTS is the standard of the organic textile. This latex is 100% natural, made exclusively from rubber tree milk of organic culture of India or Sri Lanka. It is naturally hypoallergenic.
100% organic cotton cover
The pillow cover is 100% organic cotton, in a high-end GOTS certified percale fabric. It has a zipper that allows adjusting of the amount of filling inside the pillow. It is machine washable once emptied from the wool and latex filling.
Pillow made by hand in the Ecovolve workshop in Belgrade.
The pillow cover is machine washable at 40°C once emptied from the wool and latex filling. Air your pillow well as your bedding regularly.
