FABRIC & INSERT CARE
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.

AUTHENTIC HILL TRIBE
Our hill tribe cushions are made from authentic Hmong and Lisu textiles, sourced directly from hill tribe villages and textile markets in Northern Thailand and S.E Asia.
NATURAL ORGANIC KAPOK
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).
