Natural-fill Pillows Covered in Organic Cotton

Rejuvenating rest begins at the top!

One of the most important keys to getting a good night's sleep is choosing the right pillow. This is not always an easy selection to make, but hopefully we can help...

  • Your pillow must be the right height for your sleeping position.
    • Side sleepers need a relatively high, dense pillow to support their head in a natural position.
    • Back sleepers need a flatter pillow to keep the neck and spine aligned properly.
    • Those who sleep on their stomach need a very thin pillow.
      NOTE: Sleeping on the stomach is not great for your neck and spine...you might want to try changing to another position.
    • People who switch positions during the night need a flat pillow for the time on their back or stomach, and a thicker pillow for the time on their side.
  • Your pillow must be in good condition.
    Many people get so attached to their pillow that they do not realize it is worn out. To test your pillow fold it in half, squeeze out the air, and let go. If it doesn't quickly spring back open it's time for a new one.
  • Your pillow must be made of the right materials.
    Store-bought pillows are typically filled with polyester or other synthetic fibers, synthetic rubber, or down and feathers and covered with conventionally-grown cotton fabric or a cotton/poly blend. Synthetic fillings and polyester fabrics are manufactured from petrochemicals which can offgas toxic and sensitivity-causing fumes. Down/feather pillows harbor dust mites and cause allergic reactions in many people, plus the process used to harvest down is cruel (see info about down). Our Pure-Rest pillows are made in California and filled with natural and organic materials*. The organic cotton covers are soft and easy to clean. These pillows are naturally resistant to mites, mildew and water, and they feel great! Most can be made with a zipper for easy customization.

    “We love the pillows and sheets we bought for our Airstream last summer so much that we're now swapping out our sheets and pillows on our bed at home!”   Kristen J, Santa Clarita, CA

*All Pure-Rest materials are tested for chemicals and contaminants by an independent lab on a regular basis. Latex is tested by the most stringent testing available today to 100 parts per billion (.1mg/kg detection limit); other materials are tested to 1 part per million (1mg/kg detection limit). Most companies don't even test their raw materials!

organic pillow shredded rubberNatural/organic shredded rubber pillows for people who switch sleeping positions (and everyone else)

Many folks who change sleeping positions during the night choose down/feather pillows because the thickness can be adjusted as desired. But, as you might know, feather pillows have problems: 1) they are not very comfortable when they matte down after the first few months; 2) they often cause allergic reactions; and 3) most down/feather pillows cannot be washed to keep dust mites under control.

A 100% natural shredded rubber pillow is an exceptionally healthy and wonderful alternative! The "cushy" filling of Pure-Rest's shredded rubber pillow can be arranged with a dip in the middle for back sleeping and higher areas on the sides for mid-night switches, which means no more pillow-punching at 2am! And the stitched woven cover pillow can be machine washed to keep it fresh and free of unwanted critters. We love this pillow so much, we think it's perfect for almost everyone!

  • Zippered covers provide easy access to the filling so you can remove some if the pillow is stuffed too full; or add filling if it's not high enough or flattens out a bit later on.
  • Knit fabric provides a softer sleeping surface than the damask covers, but it should not be washed without removing the filling (a rather messy process).
  • The stitched damask pillows can be machine washed on gentle cycle. Washing zippered pillows is not recommended without removing the filling to avoid a potential mess in the washer.
  • Cotton is grown in the USA and Germany; rubber is grown in South East Asia; pillows are sewn in the USA.
  • Also see Woolie Ball pillows -- another customer favorite.

organic pillow wool kapok rubberNatural/organic pillows for side sleepers (wool, kapok, molded rubber)

People who sleep on their side need a relatively high, dense pillow to keep their head and spine aligned in a straight, natural position. Pure-Rest's 100% natural shredded rubber pillow (see above) is a good option for side sleepers because it is stuffed quite full and the stuffing can be removed to fine-tune the thickness to your head and comfort. Other options for side sleepers include medium-fill eco-wool, medium-fill kapok**, molded natural rubber, or a zippered kapok pillow which can be easily adjusted by adding or removing filling to create a loft that fits the way you sleep. Additional kapok filling can be purchased separately in case your sleeping pattern changes or it gets matted down over time.

Pure-Rest's cotton damask cover fabric is made in Germany; wool is from Northern California, Oregon, and Washington; rubber is grown in South East Asia; and pillows are sewn in the USA.

* Also available with certified organic wool. Contact us for pricing (about 35% higher) and purchase. These wool pillows are not washable and are made with batting which tends to matte down in a relatively short time. For a fluffier and more resilient pillow, we recommend Organic Woolie Ball pillows, see below.
** Kapok is a silky, fluffy, resilient fiber from the seed pods of the tropical Ceiba pentandra tree, imported from South America or Southeast Asia. The non-zippered pillow can be machine washed, but needs to be completely dried in a dryer and refluffed by hand or with a stick. Washing zippered pillows is not recommended without removing the filling to avoid a potential mess in the washer.

organic pillow thin lightNatural/organic pillows for back sleepers (wool, kapok, contoured rubber)

Those who sleep on their back need a flatter pillow to keep the neck and spine properly aligned. Pure-Rest's 100% natural shredded rubber pillow is a good option for back sleepers because stuffing can be removed to fine-tune the thickness (see above). Other options for back sleepers are Pure-Rest's light-fill eco-wool or kapok* pillows, or contoured natural rubber pillow (see list at right). Also see the Woolie Ball pillow below.

Cotton cover fabric is made in Germany; wool is from Northern California, Oregon, and Washington; rubber is grown in South East Asia; pillows are sewn in the USA. Other sizes may be available on request. Please contact us with the size and type of pillow you are interested in.

To wash a zippered pillow remove filling, then hand wash and hang dry the outer only...machine washing will cause shinkage of 5-6% and will make a mess if the zipper opens.

organic woolie ball pillowOrganic Woolie Ball pillows

Pure-Rest's Woolie Ball pillows are amazing! Unlike those filled with wool batting, these pillows contain little woolen balls that don't clump together, which keeps your pillow fluffy over years of use. The loose nature of the soft, balled-up wool also reduces pressure on the ear of side-sleepers.

Light-fill pillows are appropriate for back sleepers. Medium and heavy pillows work best for side sleepers and those who switch positions in the middle of the night. Height can be adjusted in zippered pillows by adding or removing filling.

Made with certified organic wool from No. Calif., Oregon, and Washington; covered in fancy European organic cotton ticking from Germany; sewn in the USA. Fluff regularly to prevent matting. Washing is not recommended, but some have successfully machine washed in cold water on delicate cycle and air-dried indoors; washing may cause some loss of fluffiness and will void the warranty. Since wool is naturally resistant to bacteria most people remove the filling and wash only the cover, or use a pillow protector to keep their pillow clean. Other sizes may be available on request...please contact us with the size and type of pillow you are interested in.

Heavy-fill organic pillows

Heavy fill pillows are enjoyed by large people and those who prefer a thick pillow with high loft. Also see heavy-fill Woolie Ball pillow in the section above. Cotton cover fabric is made in Germany; wool is from Northern California, Oregon, and Washington; pillows are sewn in the USA. The fill-weights of Pure-Rest pillows are not listed because they are in the process of standardizing the heights. To find out the weight please contact us with the size and type of pillow you are interested in.

* Also available with certified organic wool. Contact us for pricing (about 35% higher) and purchase. These wool pillows are not washable and are made with batting which tends to matte down in a relatively short time. For a fluffier and more resilient pillow, we recommend Organic Woolie Ball pillows, see above.

Organic cotton pillows

We also carry organic cotton-filled pillows (vegan), but cotton mattes down more than the other fillings so we don't usually recommend them. Contact us for pricing and availability.
