Kapok, the down that grows on trees

Although it is a highly functional fiber, it is difficult to make into fibers due to its light weight and short length, making it difficult to commercialize it. Kapok Knot has successfully commercialized Kapok after research and development with major companies.


The hollow fibers are the secret to its lightness. When it's cold, it absorbs moisture and generates heat.
When it's hot, it releases moisture to keep you cool and comfortable.
The air layer of kapok gently envelops you at any time.


Since the material is derived from nuts, there is no need to use animal fur or feathers or cut down trees.


When it dries, it turns ocher. Harvesting takes place in September every year in Indonesia.


A large amount of cotton is packed into one fruit.
