I am very picky about my pillows...it's got to be the perfect height, not too thick, but not flat, either. Well Savvy Rest recently gave me the opportunity to review their Shredded Latex Pillow, and I have to say, this is the perfect pillow!
Savvy Rest offers all kinds of organic products from a natural latex mattress to organic bedding, and more! Founded by Michael Perry, who struggled with insomnia, it was the solution to his problem.
"What would lead a yoga-practicing, organic-food-eating marathon runner to start a mattress company? He couldn’t sleep. Michael had insomnia, ironically at its worst while he was working for a futon company. In part, what he’d learned about materials and practices in the mattress industry was keeping him awake.
Most mattress stores were full of chemically treated fabrics covering cheap padding or noxious chemical foams, atop flimsy foundations. Stories of rip-offs, shoddy quality and deceptive product descriptions abounded.
It occurred to Michael that many people approached mattress shopping in a state of fear. So he resolved to create a new kind of mattress company that offered a new level of quality and service. In 2003, The Savvy Sleeper, our flagship store, opened in Charlottesville, Virginia, drawing customers from as far away as Baltimore and North Carolina.
Finding an organic mattress to sell was a tall order. We found one natural latex mattress, but the casing was synthetic. Even the biggest companies in the ”natural mattress” niche were using only some organic materials, or making mattresses that weren't very comfortable. We decided to make our own."
The Shredded Latex Pillow is made with soft shredded latex (blended Dunlop and Talalay). The pillow is nice and comfortable, and conforms to the shape of your neck and shoulders. The best part, though, is that you can unzip the casings, and remove any amount of filling so that you decide what height and density is right for you! Like I said, it's the perfect pillow! I like my pillows full, but this one was a tad too dense for me. So, all I had to do is remove a small amount of the fill material, and I ended up with the solution to a perfect night's sleep! Seriously, if my pillow is not just right, I can't sleep. I have a variety of pillows lined up along my bed, and I use this one frequently! It is also great for propping up in bed while reading :) The outside covering is very soft, and is removable for washing.
