Sleep ought to be refreshing and as such, it is essential to keep the body in a position that helps our body to relax better. But you will agree with me that this is depends on having the right accessories around; one of such is the pillow.
While a good bed provides the body a comfortable space to rest, a pillow will provide the head and the neck with valuable support that makes one’s sleep as refreshing as ever. Aside that however; high quality wool pillows can also serve decorative purposes.

I must reemphasize that the company’s remain true to its mission which is helping people have a more relaxing/healthier sleep. The plush support is yet another feature that fascinates in some way.

It is available in three (3) different sizes – 20” X 25”; 20” X 30” and 20” X 36”. And for the mention, the pillow is virtually made from natural materials; its cover is from organic cotton while the insert is eco-wool. One thing that gives this piece an edge is the fact that it is machine washable.
This pillow may be much more costly than the money spent on it and that’s down to how its rigidity could bring about pain to one’s neck and make sleep a bit distressing. Such scenarios can however be prevented by adjusting the pillow to suit one’s need and/or sleeping orientation – this is definitely while a zipper has been provided on the cover. That said; the onus is on the manufacturer to improve the quality of this particular product.

Surya is a brand that has been given to making pillows [as well as some other home décor accessories] of high quality over the years, and in this product, it did set the bar a little higher. The pillow [which is machine made] is 100% wool. It has a colour like that of coffee which probably explains why ‘espresso’ is included in the name – could make a wonderful gift for a coffee lover by the way.
This pillow is square and is available in two different dimensions – 18” X 18” and 22” X 22” – with a weight of 4 pounds.

If there is one brand that deserves some commendation for incorporating the ‘old’ into a new world when it comes to making and/or designing pillows, then I believe Global Views should be it. Its product line is replete with accessories that reflect heirloom quality. One of these is the Trapunto wool pillow which was wholly crafted with hand and it rightly qualifies as a decorative piece.
It is made from a mix of materials; the cover is made of 70% wool and 30% nylon and its lining is of 100% cotton while it is stuffed with feather-down insert. It is 20” X 20” in size and it weighs 1 pound. The pillow is available in four different colors; these include grey, blue-grey, orange and lime green.
This quilted piece from Global Views is indeed finely made. I love it for the interesting features it bears – from the color which would subtly tune up the status of the room down to the overlapping pattern displayed on it – thanks to the Trapunto quilting technique. This pillow belongs in the class of the finest decorative accessories you will ever find in the store.
