Bamboo Pillows!

7 Mar 2016 3:30 PM - Benefits and care instructions
CHARACTERISTICS OF BAMBOO FIBRE AND MEMORY FOAM
BAMBOO FIBRE IS NATURALLY ANTI-BACTERIAL AND HYPOALLERGENIC, UV PROTECTIVE, GREEN & BIODEGRADABLE, BREATHABLE & COOL, STRONG, FLEXIBLE, SOFT AND HAS A LUXURIOUS SHINY APPEARANCE.

 

GOOD ABSORPTION ABILITY

BAMBOO FIBRE ABSORBS AND EVAPORATES SWEAT VERY QUICKLY. IT IS 3-4 TIMES MORE ABSORBENT THAN COTTON FABRICS.

 
TEMPERATURE ADAPTABILITY

FABRICS MADE FROM BAMBOO FIBRE ARE HIGHLY BREATHABLE IN HOT WEATHER. BAMBOO IS NATURALLY COOL TO THE TOUCH. THE CROSS-SECTION OF THE BAMBOO FIBRE IS FILLED WITH VARIOUS MICRO-GAPS AND MICRO-HOLES LEADING TO MUCH BETTER MOISTURE ABSORPTION AND VENTILATION. 
BECAUSE OF THE SAME MICRO STRUCTURE IT IS ALSO VERY WARM IN COLD WEATHER,  AS THE WARM AIR GETS TRAPPED NEXT TO THE SKIN.
 

ANTIBACTERIAL

BAMBOO IS NATURALLY ANTIBACTERIAL, ANTIFUNGAL AND ANTI-STATIC. BAMBOO HAS A UNIQUE ANTI-BACTERIA AND BACTERIOSTATIC BIO-AGENT NAMED "BAMBOO KUN" WHICH BONDS TIGHTLY WITH BAMBOO CELLULOSE MOLECULES DURING THE NORMAL PROCESS OF BAMBOO FIBRE GROWTH. THIS FEATURE GETS RETAINED IN BAMBOO FABRICS. MANY TESTS HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED WHOSE RESULTS SHOW OVER 70% DEATH RATE AFTER BACTERIA WAS INCUBATED ON BAMBOO FIBRE FABRIC. TESTS BY THE JAPANESE TEXTILE INSPECTION ASSOCIATION SHOWS THAT, EVEN AFTER FIFTY WASHES, BAMBOO FABRIC STILL POSSESSED THESE PROPERTIES. IT MAKES BAMBOO FABRICS HEALTHIER, GERM FREE AND ODOUR FREE.
 

ENVIRONMENTAL

ITS YIELD IS 10 TIMES THAT OF COTTON, WITHOUT USING ANY FERTILISERS OR PESTICIDES. ADDITIONALLY, EVEN ORGANIC COTTON USES A HUGE AMOUNT OF WATER FOR GROWING, WHEREAS BAMBOO GROWS WITHOUT ANY IRRIGATION, OFTEN ON HILL SLOPES WHERE NOTHING ELSE CAN BE GROWN. IT REALLY CAN GIVE AN OPTION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FOR THOSE ENGAGED IN PRODUCING BAMBOO AND MANUFACTURING.

 
MEMORY FOAM

HAVING BEEN DEVELOPED BY NASA IN THE MID 1960'S AND WIDELY OFFERED COMMERCIALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE 1980'S, MEMORY FOAM'S MOST UNIQUE QUALITY IS ITS TEMPERATURE SENSITIVITY, WHICH SOFTENS THE FOAM IN CONTACT WITH THE BODY, CRADLING AREAS THAT NORMALLY RECEIVE PRESSURE AND SUPPORTING AREAS THAT TYPICALLY DO NOT. THIS CONTOURING RELIEVES PRESSURE POINTS, INCREASES CIRCULATION AND ALIGNS THE SPINE AND OTHER JOINTS. LATEX FOAM'S MOST UNIQUE QUALITY IS THE EASE WITH WHICH ITS STRUCTURE ALLOWS COOLING AIR FLOW. WHILE REMAINING FIRM, AIR IS PASSED THROUGH THE FOAM WITH EVERY MOVEMENT, DISSIPATING BODY HEAT AND KEEPING THE USER COOL.
MEMORY FOAM IS ALSO ANTI-MICROBIAL, INHIBITING THE GROWTH OF MILDEW, MOULD, BACTERIA AND DUST MITES.
 
CARE INSTRUCTIONS
 
YOUR PILLOW SHOULD BE AIRED BEFORE FIRST USE
MEMORY FOAM OFTEN COMES WITH A LIGHT ODOUR. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO ALLOW A FEW HOURS OF AIRING AFTER TAKING THE PILLOW OUT OF ITS CASE TO ALLOW FOR THE SLIGHT ODOUR TO FADE.

 
BAMBOO SOFT COMFORTER COVER

THE BAMBOO FIBRE SOFT COVER CAN BE REMOVED AND MACHINE WASHED ON A GENTLE CYCLE.
 

MEMORY FOAM PILLOWS ARE EASY TO MAINTAIN

THE MEMORY FOAM PILLOW CANNOT BE WASHED IN A WASHING MACHINE. WASHING MACHINES ARE FAR TOO AGGRESSIVE AND CAN AGITATE THE MEMORY FOAM, CAUSING THE FOAM TO CRUMBLE.
A GENTLE HAND WASH IN LUKE-WARM WATER IS RECOMMENDED.
DO NOT WASH IN HOT WATER OR COLD WATER.
ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF WASHING DETERGENT IS REQUIRED. LIKEWISE, ONLY USE ENOUGH WATER TO COVER THE PILLOW. GENTLY MASSAGE THE DETERGENT INTO THE MEMORY FOAM PILLOW, SQUEEZING IT THROUGHOUT FOR AN EVEN CLEAN.
ENSURE YOU RINSE THE PILLOW THOROUGHLY TO REMOVE ALL TRACES OF DETERGENT. IT IS IMPORTANT TO RINSE REPEATEDLY UNTIL NO SOAP SUDS APPEAR IN THE RINSE WATER.

 
DO NOT DRY MEMORY FOAM PILLOW IN THE DRYER

HIGH HEAT CAN AGITATE THE MEMORY FOAM, CAUSING THE FOAM TO CRUMBLE. IT IS BEST LEFT TO DRY ON A CLEAN, FLAT SURFACE, PREFERABLY IN THE SUN. ENSURE THE PILLOW IS THOROUGHLY DRY BEFORE USING IT AGAIN. LEFTOVER MOISTURE AND RESIDUE CAN CAUSE MOULD AND MILDEW.
