"I don't know who came up with this idea but it was brilliant. Perfect head and neck support that I was able to adjust to ME but removing some of the fill. I also needed the hypoallergenic for my allergies so I couldn't be happier with this shredded rubber pillow!"

DO NOT WASH. Protect the pillow with a pillow cover. Air the pillow seasonally to refresh. Spot clean cotton cover as needed.
Inside the pillow is two horizontal 1" high strips of organic cotton which are baffled to the organic cotton cover to create the pillow's shape. The pillow is then filled full with natural shredded latex.
Pure Natural Rubber foam is made from the milk (sap) tapped from the Hevea Brasiliensis, the common rubber tree, grown on Malaysian and Sri Lankan plantations. The Hevea milk is harvested in the morning and by afternoon it is being molded into sheets of pure natural rubber. No chemicals are added to the milk during this process. The natural rubber foam is made using the Dunlop system to produce the purest latex foam. This process involves only air, natural soap and vulcanization agents, which are used to ensure the latex foam keeps its form. The finished latex foam is shipped to Canada where the pillows are expertly crafted and covered. Manufacturing the latex foam where the sap is harvested helps sustain the local economy and provide jobs without depleting the natural resources of the country of origin.
Damask cotton is 100% organic, certified through GOTS. It is cultivated and hand picked in the traditional co-operative manner that has been followed for centuries in the Canete and Chincha valleys high in the Peruvian Andes. It is grown organically without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or defoliants to fertilize the crop, control plant growth or fight pests. No synthetic chemicals are used to strip the leaves in preparation for the harvest or during the manufacturing process. It is woven to very high standards into the finest fabrics, in Peru and Belgium.

If you are looking for additional support for your head, neck, shoulders and spine, then the Solus Organic Shredded Natural Rubber Contour Pillow is a great choice. The unique baffle design of our contour pillow cradles your head in a center pocket while the edge provides extra support under your neck. It also allows you to remove some of the shredded rubber filling if the pillow is too high or you want less support. It is nice to have a contour pillow that has size options and actually looks like a pillow. Besides looking better on the bed, testers reported this contour pillow was more comfortable and provided equal pain relief and support when compared to a traditional molded contour pillow.
