We believe only the purest fabric, which is free of harmful chemicals and toxins is suitable for our little ones' sensitive and delicate skins. That is why our fabric is woven from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. And only the GOTS list of approved products, which meet strict requirements of GOTS on toxicity and biodegradability are used while processing the wool we use to fill in the pillow. Please visit our Baby & Kids Room Textile Collection for bedding sets, duvet inserts and more.

Please note that the sizes above are the sizes recommended for noted ages. Although they might seem small from an adult's point of view, or on baby's crib or toddler bed, they are the correct sizes when your little one's comfort and support are taken into account. Please make sure you remove other pillows you use as a decor or bigger in size during the night and naps for your baby's safety.

The recommended pillow height for back and side sleepers, shorter than 4 feet 4 inches (135cm) is less than 2.5 inches (7-8 cm) So the height of our pillows are less than 2.5 inches.

Why wool?

It has been proven scientifically that sleeping in wool makes for the best night sleep. We use Woolmark certified wool to fill in the pillow since it has temperature-balancing qualities and provides a dry and healthy microclimate. Wool is sustainable, biodegradable, hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant, mildew resistant, antimicrobial, anti-bacterial, flame resistant and a great insulator. The products used in processing the wool are free of AP, NP, APEO, NPEO, PFOA, PFOS.

***Why Organic Cotton?

*Reduces environmental footprint
No toxic chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton. It doesn’t damage the soil, has less impact on the air, and uses 88% less water and 62% less energy. Conventional cotton uses about 16% of the world’s insecticides and 7% of pesticides.

*Promotes safe work & better livelihoods
Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe. They are not exposed to toxic chemicals in the field or through their food and water supply. It also means farmers grow more than one crop which supplements their food and income.

*Model for the future
By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages. But organic cotton is 80% rain-fed, which reduces pressure on local water sources. The absence of chemicals also means that water is cleaner and safer. Cotton is often grown in water-scarce areas using irrigation and it takes 2,700 liters of water to make a conventional cotton t-shirt.

*Impacts our food system
Organic cotton is grown from organic cotton seeds. Cotton seed oil is used in a variety of food products such as cookies, chips and vegetable oil, and is also fed to livestock. So while cotton fiber is not something we put in our body, the by-product can make its way into our diets.

*Fair price for sustainability
When you buy organic cotton you are investing in water conservation, cleaner air, better soil and farmer livelihoods. The price for organic cotton is therefore sometimes, but not always, higher. However, with demand on the rise, more choices will become available.

*You can make a difference
Caring for the world and the people we share it with is a life choice. Choosing organic cotton is part of this choice. In 2015, 26 million metric tonnes of cotton was produced globally, much of it for the apparel industry. Organic cotton makes up less than 1% of this. By choosing organic over conventional cotton you have the purchasing power to influence brands, manufacturers and even farmers. So let’s change this number
