Stuffing:

The bolster is filled with buckwheat hulls from Quebec. In view of sustainable development, this stuffing has the advantage of being recycled, renewable, durable and compostable. In addition, buckwheat hulls are hypoallergenic, anti-mite and anti-bacterial.

After a few months of use, the volume of the new cushion is reduced by 5 to 10%. We can at this time add shells to restore the volume of the cushion. After a few years, it is a good idea to replace the shells with newer ones.

 

Maintenance:

Avoid placing the cushion on a dirty or dusty surface. To wash the cover, remove the lining and handwash with cold soapy water. Let the cover air dry and take this opportunity to air out the cushion in the sun.

 

Specifications:

Cover: 100% cotton canvas

Lining: 100% unbleached cotton

FAQ:

What should I do if I’m unsure between medium or large format?

Everyone’s needs are different depending on your flexibility and the postures you practice. If you have already used a bolster, cushion, rolled blanket, or any other support, measure it for comparison. The medium size is lighter and more affordable, and it provides lower, shorter support. The large bolster allows for higher support and is longer to support the back (open heart posture). Our most popular size is the large. For more details on sizes, refer to our article How to choose the right bolster?

My cushion seems to have lost volume, is this normal?

Yes, after a few months of use, the volume of the new cushion is reduced by 5 to 10%. At this point, you can add hulls to restore the volume of the cushion. They are available on the online store. After a few years, it is a good idea to replace the husks with newer ones.

So it is possible to add buckwheat hulls?

Yes of course, the cushion has a clasp which allows you to add or remove buckwheat hulls.

Can I use my bolster as a body pillow for sleeping?

Yes it’s possible! The size of the bolsters was not designed specifically for this purpose but many do and are very satisfied! However, it would be best to cover it with a long pillowcase for comfort and ease of care.

Can I use my bolster as a nursing pillow?

Yes it is possible, but the size of the bolsters was not designed for this purpose. If you are using it for breastfeeding or sitting your baby, it would be best to cover it with a long pillowcase for comfort and ease of care. You could also remove a little buckwheat hulls, to make it easier to bend it.

Can I order just the cover, or just the cushion inside?

Yes, contact us for this type of request.
