Info on each type of pillow’s material composition

Ara pillow: buckwheat  

Filled with U.S.-grown organic buckwheat hulls. The buckwheat hulls:

  • Have been dusted, triple cleaned and frozen
  • Do not contain pesticides, herbicides or other chemical agents

Pillow shell that encases the buckwheat is unbleached cotton muslin, which is conventionally grown (not organic).

Cassiopeia, Virgo, Vela pillows: down / down+feather

These pillows contain down and feathers that are:

  • Bluesign Approved. Meets the standards of Bluesign, which is an independent body that governs criteria for environmental safe production
  • Allergen-free. Rigorously tested to ensure it’s free of chemicals and irritants and safe for asthma and allergy sufferers. Testing measure turbidity, and while 400mm+ is considered hypoallergenic, our down and feather consistently measures 1000mm+, making it one of the cleanest and most allergen-free
  • Meticulously sourced. Sourced with animal welfare in mind. Quality standards are governed by bird maturity, climate, breed, species, sustainably and deep concern for animal welfare
  • Cleaned with Durawash. Our washing process involves multiple washes in biodegradable, environmentally-friendly detergent and recycled water. From the washer, it is thoroughly dried, cooled and de-dusted. It passes through a metal detector and is shipped in bags and containers that prevent foreign elements like dirt and oil from compromising the quality

Pillow shell that encases the down/feather fill is certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® (ie: free from harmful substances) and made of conventional cotton. Does not contain wrinkle-resisters.

Orion pillow: down alternative

  • The down alternative fill is a polyester-based microfiber fill
  • Pillow shell that encases the fill is certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® (ie: free from harmful substances) and made of conventional cotton. Does not contain wrinkle-resisters

Lyra pillow: latex

  • Given comfort preferences from our testing, we use a blended Talalay latex material, which contains both natural latex (from the sap of a rubber tree) and synthetic latex (which is petro-chemical based). The latex is certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® (ie: free from harmful substances) and does not contain plastics or polyurethane
  • Pillow shell that encases the latex fill is made of a knit polyester fabric
