Choosing the right pillow is one of the most important aspects of creating the best possible sleep for you. It is not only a matter of comfort preference; the right pillow also depends on what position you most commonly sleep in, and the metrics of your individual sizing, particularly neck length and shoulder width. When we assist our clients in finding the right pillow, achieving spinal alignment is paramount, as is maximising your airflow for healthy comfortable sleep.
If you are a back sleeper, we salute you! Back sleeping is widely acknowledged to be the best position for long term sleep and wellbeing. Optimised breathing, spinal care, and pressure reduction are all benefitted by back sleeping. It is something we should all try and do, so the question really is why don’t we? The answer is because it is not comfortable enough for most of us, which in our opinion is a result of improper mattresses, pillows, and bed bases. The key to using a pillow for back sleeping is that it has to support your head upwards (ever tried lying flat on your back without a pillow? Ow!), but it must not take your head too far upwards. It has to be just right. So there is no, ‘one size fits all’, and as with most pillows, it is a function of your size, and your comfort preference for firm, hard, or responsive cushioning.
Dunlop Latex is the long established industry standard for quality latex manufacture. We utlitise it in our pillows because it has very different feel to Talalay Latex, that is through our research, more commonly found to be preferred for pillow use. It is less bouncy, and firmer than Talalay, but provides the support, quick response, and resilience to make it a fantastic material for your 'mattress of the head'. In addition as a material, it is more easily manipulated to allow us to create our signature shapes and designs which accentuate your personal comfort and the uniqueness of our pillows. Dunlop latex is well known for its durability, breathability, and of course that is naturally hypoallergenic, and antimicrobial.Learn more

There is a lot of terminology banded around regarding the 'allergen' performance of mattresses. What we know is this: dust mites like to live in warm dark places, in moisture filled, closed environments. Latex mattresses afford no such opportunity, and neither do truly ventilated mattresses. Hypo-allergenic means 'less allergen likely than others', which is the truth of the matter and why we use that statement for mattresses to which it applies. In addition to a materials specific properties and the ventilation of mattresses to reduce allergens, most of our mattresses also have removable washable covers, which is a significant step in terms of being able to regularly wash away any dust, skin cells or allergens that are either airborne or may accumulate through your use of the bed.
Good ventilation is at the heart of healthy revitalising sleep. Where we mark our products as 'total ventilation' it indicates that every aspect of the product has been considered with ventilation in mind, and therefore every material, surface, and construction has been provided with total breathability and complete airflow. Not only is total ventilation the easiest way to regulate temperature, but it is also the best way to decrease microbial/allergen/dust/mites activity.
