The silky filling tucked inside this bold West African print is made from the seedpods of the tropical kapok tree, which are not only hypoallergenic but also luxuriously soft.
Subtle black, tan, and cream stripes give this lightweight, handwoven kapok cushion the feel of classic mattress ticking. This mat comes with ties so you can roll it into an easy-to-stow bundle.
