KAPOK is one of the most sustainable natural fibres for textiles. It can be combined with other fibres to create a wide range of fabrics: comfortable, lightweight, hypoallergenic, antibacterial and soft to the touch. With no additives, they have amazing properties: moisture control, temperature regulation, insect repellency and much more.
For many years, kapok has been used, straight from the pod in which it grows, simply as a filler, in products such as mattresses and soft toys.
KAPOK is naturally occurring, organic by default, helps people and the planet.
The kapok uses natural resources.
The tree provides a non-food fruit pod filled with fibres only.
The pod is harvested then the fibres are removed from the pod and cleaned by a machine.
The tree remains intact and continues to regenerate the ecosystem.
