The handmade nature of Hmong textiles means that they may have imperfections from the natural process of weaving, batik application and dying, often further adding to their character and uniqueness.


Washing the cushion cover

Caring for your cushion cover is simple – remove the insert before washing, wash separately in warm water, ideally by hand, and shade dry.

Washing the insert

The kapok insert can be washed in a machine or by hand as regular cotton, although we advise removal of the kapok filling beforehand.

It is possible to wash the insert with the kapok filling inside, although kapok takes a notoriously long time to dry due to it’s density!

Caring for the kapok

Kapok is a fantastic fill for cushions and needs no special care – just plump up the kapok fiber every now and then to keep your cushion plump, and add or remove kapok as you wish to find your perfect firmness.


Our cushions & pillows are packed with loving care and sent from Northern Thailand via tracked airmail which should reach you in around 12-21 days standard airmail (US, UK, EU, AUS, ASIA), or 5-10 days via Express.

How is hill tribe indigo plant dye created?

Hill tribes traditionally make indigo dye by fermenting hand picked indigo plant leaves in water, extracting insoluble indigo, and converting it to a water-soluble form through reduction in a large clay vat. Fabric is immersed in this vat before being exposed to air, where it undergoes resulting in the characteristic blue color. This traditional method has been practiced by hill tribes for generations.

Where is the hill tribe fabric sourced?

We source our hill tribe textiles directly from the Hmong in Northern Thailand. Our indigo dyed cotton sheets are made to order, often requiring a lead time of many weeks due to the time intensive process of traditional fabric dyeing.

What is kapok cushion filling?

Kapok is a soft natural fiber extracted from the seed pods of Kapok (Ceiba) tree which is found in Thailand and Indonesia.

Also known as silk cotton or java cotton, it is luxurious to the touch and has all the qualities of down (without the cruelty of feather gathering). The fiber is non toxic, odorless, resistant to rot, as well as being 100% natural and organic.

This kapok is harvested directly here in Thailand and in it's purest form, untreated and unbleached as you can tell by it's yellow color (whereas a cheaper treated kapok is often noticeably whiter in color).
