KAPOK is not a new idea. In the past this natural fibre was used extensively for pillows, mattresses and soft fillings for furniture, it has a history of durability and service.
KAPOK is a natural fibre which comes from a tree called "Ceiba Pentandra" (The KAPOK TREE) which is a renewable resource, similar to cotton.
Before being replaced by cheaper synthetics, the kapok fibre, which is eight times lighter than cotton and five times more buoyant than cork was used as the floatation for life preservers. In addition to these attributes the kapok fibre is totally water repellent and resistant to rot.
