Kapok is a silky fiber harvested in the rainforests of the Philippines, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, tropical America and Africa. After the ripe pods of the tree are harvested, the seeds are removed and the fluffy fiber is meticulously cleaned and dried.
It is soft like down, yet supportive in its efficiency. It helps preserve rainforests and the indigenous people who harvest it.
It`s been used in many ancient cultures, including Mayan, African, and West Indian.
