More about the material used for our eye pillows.
The fabric used to create these pillows are made from cotton scraps. The textile industry is one of the biggest polluters to our environment due to excessive chemical use and large amounts of water used to produce the cotton. The cotton scraps are ground back to fibres and re-spun into fabric saving new crops from having to be grown.
The cotton material is then dyed using botanical dyes linked to ancestral techniques with no harm to the environment or workers health. It is time intensive taking over 3 weeks, however this is a local craft worth supporting while also preventing harmful chemicals from entering the environment and potentially harming workers.
Produced in India under fair working conditions.
More about using Lavender for our eye pillows
Lavender is a wonderful harmonising herb that can help to balance the nervous and musculoskeletal system. The scent can help to penetrate your nervous system to relieve spasms, cramps, irritability and mental fatigue. It can also work as a sedative or stimulant depending on your needs. Often used to aid in relaxation before sleep, this is a wonderful choice.
To revive the scent in your eye pillow, simply squeeze the pouch to release the natural oils from the herbs.
