Our Shredded Natural Latex / Rubber Pillow is very versatile. Made from shredded natural rubber, it can be shaped to fit your sleeping preference and neck comfort. The organic cotton cover is fully machine washable and features a brass zipper. The whole pillow is also machine washable as the shredded rubber dries quickly: its washability makes our shredded natural rubber pillow a favorite with many of our customers.
Our natural rubber is as pure and organic as can be. The rubber is collected between 5-9 in the morning, cooked by noon, and processed with foaming and rinsing agent via the natural Dunlop method (as opposed to the more popular Talalay processing method (used by most rubber manufacturers), which applies many chemicals in the processing) and rinsed 4 times to remove milk proteins, resulting in a natural rubber that's extremely pure. Most customers who are allergic to latex find that they do not react to our natural rubber products; it's the chemicals in conventional rubber processing that they react to.
On top of all the other benefits of our shredded natural pillow, it is also anti-bacterial, hypo-allergenic, and dust-resistant. It provides soft and resilient support for the head and neck; so, whether you sleep on your side or on your back, you will find that our shredded natural rubber pillow gives you a perfect night's rest, night after night.
Caution: Our natural rubber products are not recommended for those with milk allergies as they may react to the milk protein in the natural rubber.
Growing sensitivities to the vast array of chemicals used in the manufacture of everyday items prevent more and more people from functioning in the chemical soup that surrounds us daily. Take cotton for example, conventionally grown cotton used in most bedding relies heavily upon chemicals that leave toxins in the soil, water, and air, not to mention the toxic residues on the cotton fibers. In an effort to preserve their own health, the health of their families, and the environmental health of the planet, many people are choosing a simpler, more natural way of life.
The Rawganique collection of the purest, organic natural bedding products is designed for those who wish to live in a cleaner, safer environment, while enjoying a top quality, hand-made product. The materials we use are the finest nature can provide; certified organic and handpicked cotton, Kapok, organic wool, and natural rubber. Are you a sound sleeper, or do you sometimes suffer from sleeplessness, perhaps a sore back? Maybe a stiff neck keeps you awake. It could be that you have allergies or are sensitive to chemicals.
Your organic mattress and bedroom accessories play a major role in how well you sleep. An uncomfortable bed will cause you to have a poor night's sleep and since you will spend approximately 100 days there this year, it is not a piece of furniture to be taken lightly. A growing number of people are sensitive to the chemicals used in the manufacture of everyday items. Traditional bedding contains synthetic materials and an abundance of chemicals such as formaldehyde and arsenic. This bedding off gases harmful vapors throughout the night for years after your purchase and have been known to cause a wide variety of health problems such as asthma, sore backs, and multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS).
With this in mind, the Rawganique organic bedding collection was created using only the purest natural materials found on Earth and by maintaining their purity throughout the manufacturing process. We use the100% natural materials necessary to provide you the best sleeping environment. Their elasticity and breathability, as well as their ability to regulate moisture and temperature, mean you get eight hours of good, restful sleep in a safe and healthy environment. Natural rubber is the most durable and elastic material available. A natural rubber core is ideal for mattresses and pillows alike; flexible yet stable, it is absorbent, resilient and provides excellent heat and moisture regulation and air circulation.
Natural rubber is a renewable resource. It is the milk or sap tapped from the Hevea Brasiliensis - the common rubber tree - grown on Malaysian plantations especially selected for their high quality product. Our supplier is located in an area that produces the finest quality rubber for mattress use; an extremely durable, elastic material characterized by its ability to retain its shape and original firmness. Because the product is manufactured where the sap is harvested, we are helping to sustain the local economy and provide jobs without depleting the natural resources of the country of origin. An important element of our manufacturing process is that the processing of the Hevea milk is done close to the plantation. We do this because rubber destabilizes when it is kept in a liquid form for too long. This can be avoided by the addition of chemicals, but since we want our product as pure as possible, we cannot do this.
For our products, the milk is harvested in the morning and by afternoon it is being molded into sheets to be shipped to the USA where they are expertly covered at our facility. We use the Dunlop system to produce a 97% pure rubber for our mattresses. This process involves only air, natural soap and vulcanization agents, which are used to ensure the rubber keeps its form. All our natural rubber bedding products - mattresses, pillows, comforters, and mattress protectors contain pure, organically grown and harvested cotton. Cotton grown in industrialized countries is saturated with pesticides and herbicides and absorb all the chemicals that modern fertilizers deposit in the soil. Machine picked, it is full of impurities, oil, leaves, and dirt. The cotton we use 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. Hand picking ensures that it is the cleanest, purest most resilient cotton fiber available. All the cotton used in our batting, filling and fabrics is this clean, pure, organic product. It is woven to very high standards into the finest, softest fabrics in the USA.
