Description

  • Shredded Organic Latex
  • Inner Pillow Case
  • Outer Pillow Case

Shredded organic latex is the same rubber that we sell in slabs, only it is shredded in tiny pieces. It is hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, dust mite resistant, temperature regulating and is rather bouncy.

A shredded latex pillow has some properties similar to a feather pillow as it can be fluffed, but unlike a feather pillow, the shredded latex mostly stays in the same spot without sinking. It can be punched into place and is deadly in pillow fights (especially in an extra large pillow case). Instead of floating on top like a kapok pillow, your head is slightly nestled in the shredded latex. The latex will never go flat and has the same 20 year lifespan as the slabs.

If you are a pillow cuddler, this is a great pillow to squeeze. If you are a multiple position sleeper, the shredded latex conveniently can be shoved into the corners of the case to create a hollow in the center for back sleeping and higher edges for side sleeping.

The cases are made with the same GOTS organic fabric that we use throughout our products. The outer case is doubleknit and the inner case a sateen, both 100% cotton, 100% organic. The outer case is prewashed so you can wash it as hot as you like without shrinking it. Both cases have a full length zipper on a short side. To eliminate the chance of the zipper coming open on its own and to silence the jingle of the zipper pull, we have hidden each pull inside a pocket to keep it secure.

This kit is not the same price as selecting the purchasing the same products separately. It is discounted here to account for its combined components. This kit does not come assembled.

To let you participate in the DIY aspect and to let you choose your amount of fill inside the case, we let you stuff the pillow yourself. To buy more loose fill or to purchase the pillow parts separately, see our Pillow Parts page.

Travel: 12″ x 20″ – 1.5 lb fill
Standard: 20″ x 26″ – 5 lb fill
Queen: 20″ x 30″ – 6 lb fill
King: 20″ x 36″ – 7 lb fill
Body: 20″ x 60″ – 13 lb fill

Custom: You name the size, we’ll sew it.

Outer pillowcase is prewashed and can be washed on hot as often as you like. Inner case may be washed as well.

Shredded latex requires no special care. It may be spritzed with vinegar to sanitize it.  While leaving it in the sunlight and machine washing it insides its case are possibilities, both treatments will shorten its life. How much it will shorten it, we have no idea.

Rarely but occasionally you may find permanent marker spots, paper labels or a bit of the plastic packaging in the shreds. The black vinyl is the plastic that the shredded latex was shipped to us in.  The labels are labels that Arpico puts on the latex in Sri Lanka stating its naturalness and firmness. Since our shredded latex comes from fall off of mattress pieces which have been stickered, those stickers are sometimes part of the shreds.

We are a custom shop.  Everything is sewn and selected just for you.  We do not keep warehouses full of product (except for latex) but instead we make each product per order. This practice lets us stay small and be able to personalize each order. That also means that there is a processing time on your products.

Many of our items ship separately from other items. Please note the following highlighted line below to detail when your purchases may arrive. Each will ship after their processing time.

CATEGORY ITEMS PROCESSING TIME
Fabric Goods ticking, puddle pads, and fabric 2 weeks

Please keep in mind, while we often keep these timetables, these estimates are generalities. If your product has not arrived by the hopeful date, be assured it is still coming and has not been forgotten.

We will email you a tracking number when your package ships.
