Latex pillows are firm and generally moulded to fit the shape of your neck. This gives added support to your neck and reduces the points of pressure giving you a more comfortable and well-rested night's sleep. Unlike typical pillows, latex pillows are durable and designed to hold their shape.

Overtime, latex pillows can become dirty and should be spot cleaned when necessary.
