What we like about the Rawganique Organic Cotton Sofa Pillow
Rawganique makes this pillow in the U.S. by hand and to order, using only GOTS certified organic cotton fill and organic cotton ticking for the cover. This pillow is super sustainable and a great choice if you’re a petite stomach-sleeper or just like a smaller, low-loft, firmer pillow.
You can purchase this pillow in the following sizes:
- Sofa pillow – 17 x 17 inch or 20 x 20 inch
- Travel pillow – 12 x 16 inch
- Bolster pillow – 21 x 8 inch (round).
This pillow is entirely vegan, free of hazardous chemicals and has low carbon emissions due to the cotton being grown in the U.S., where the pillow is also made.
I also like that Rawganique ships its pillows in plastic-free packaging, unless you expressly ask for plastic packaging to protect the pillow in transit.
Downsides to the Organic Cotton Sofa Pillow
You can’t easily wash this organic cotton pillow. Instead, you can empty out the contents and wash the cover by itself (assuming you get the version with zipper). You can also air out the pillow every few weeks to freshen it up in the sun. For odors and spills, consider sprinkling a little baking soda on the pillow before airing it out. Vacuum up any excess baking soda after a few hours of airing.
Cotton is firmer than kapok and wool and tends to settle and flatten over time. You can, however, fluff your pillow by putting it in the dryer on the coolest setting with a couple of new tennis balls.
The firmness of cotton may be off-putting for anyone more familiar with super soft polyester or down pillows. For others, the firmness may be a bonus!
The biggest downside, then, is that you can’t return this pillow if it doesn’t work for you. The good news is that you can pick up a Travel size at a good price, giving you a feel for the cotton. And if it proves too firm for sleep, you can easily repurpose the pillow as a sofa pillow.
Final thoughts on the Rawganique Organic Cotton Sofa/Travel Pillow
If you’re a petite stomach-sleeper who likes a firmer, flatter pillow, the Rawganique cotton pillow is worth considering. This pillow is low-loft, fairly firm, relatively affordable, and entirely GOTS certified organic. It’s also one of the most sustainable pillows you can buy in America, given that the cotton is grown, processed, and made into a pillow without leaving the country.
If you’re a stomach-sleeper but find cotton too firm, there are softer, squishier, low-loft pillows available. Consider Turmerry’s Toddler Pillow (see our review), or choose Savvy Rest’s kapok pillow (see our review) and remove some of the stuffing to lower the loft.
