Differentiating the two sides of a pillow allows the user the final 'tweak' on a daily basis to ensure that your pillow is optimised for you. Whether you prefer a smooth flat feel, or a gently contoured feel is down to you, and these pillows recognise that to have choice is a performance advancement.
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.
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.
Side sleeping is the most common sleeping position. Our perspective is that the loft (i.e the height), the edge contouring, and the firmness are the principal factors relevant to a good side sleeping pillow. It is critical that the pillow be the right height/loft for your individual shape, to keep your head supported and spine aligned. This is affected by both the width of your shoulders, and the extent to which you mattress is absorbing your shoulder zone. If you can find the right height, then comfort can be a matter of preference as to the degree of firmness, bounce, and response of the pillow with the purpose of keeping your head supported at the right elevation. For side sleeping, the pillow needs to ‘fit’ within the gap of your neck (to your shoulder), and therefore the shape and side contouring of the pillow can deliver a wonderfully snug fit, and absolute perfection for side sleeping.
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.
