The Calla Pillow

The Calla Pillow is the World’s Best Washable Pillow, covered in soft organic cotton, made by parents for kids.

And now they offer pillowcases!

The Calla Pillowcase is unbleached and undyed and 100% chemical free. And it fits the perfect little Calla pillows.

Refresher: The Calla pillow is washable, organic, contains no flame retardant chemicals, hypoallergenic, appropriately sized for children, and comes with a 3 year guarantee.

While designed for children ages 2-5, the Calla pillow is great for anyone. (little guy’s pillow sometimes finds its way to my room) I find that it offers a comfortable support ( 3″) and measures 13 x 18.

Also new on their website is “Lovely Lavender Oil”. Containing Organic Lavender Essential Oil from Bulgaria and Coconut Oil, it is pre-diluted and comes with a dropper top so it’s ready to use. A few drops and gently massage. A “calming” essential oil, Lavender is one of the best for toddlers and their families.

►►►Attention parents. The Calla Pillow is designed specifically for your little sleepy heads.

It is…..

– Hypoallergenic
– Machine Washable
– Durable
– Organic Cotton
– Soft (but not too soft)
– Appropriate thickness based on the Pediatrician’s Guide

Designed for toddlers ages 2-4, it also makes a great adult travel pillow. I really love the feel of the USA grown, 100% organic cotton sateen shell. It is a washable, hypoallergenic pillow that’s oh-so-comfy. It has the “right stuff” inside for a comfortable snooze. Way way better than anything I’ve seen in the stores. Be sure to visit the CallaCreative website for a 15% off discount code. And rest assured, this toddler pillow comes with a 3 year “outgrow it guarantee”.

Although washable, I’d love for Calla to offer pillowcases. Just for the sake of it; in organic cotton, too.

All About CallaCreative~

When our daughter turned 2 she was ready for a big girl bed and started asking for a pillow to sleep with. We gave her an old flat pillow that we had laying around the house, and while it was safe – it just looked uncomfortable, oversized and old. We knew it was a short term solution.

After talking with many other parents in our circle, we found out some of the important things that parents look for in a pillow. Some themes that kept appearing were – Washability, Durability, Organic, Safe and Hypoallergenic. As we looked for pillows that met these criteria, we realized that there was a rather limited selection of pillows for Toddlers. 

We researched many different types of fills and found the advantages and disadvantages of each. We were disappointed with many of the organic fills out there. Cotton clumped. Wool wasn’t able to be washed. Memory foam couldn’t be put in the washing machine at all. We ended up going with a special blend of polyester cluster fiber that is hypoallegenic, machine washable and extremely durable.

 We chose an organic cotton sateen shell for the pillow that is sourced locally and certified organic. It’s softer and more durable than the traditional 200 or 400 thread count non-organic cotton pillows out there.

 After a lot of back and forth, we found a pillow that we loved and that Emilie (our daughter) loved. So we reached out to other parents to get feedback. The feedback was very helpful for us as we improved our design.

 We found that some parents thought the pillow was too thick. So we reduced the fill. And found that other parents thought the pillow was too thin. So we researched the appropriate thickness from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The Original Calla Pillow falls within the guidelines set forth by the AAP.

 When the pillow arrives, it is at it’s fullest and will reduce in thickness by 30-35% within the first week of use and will remain at that optimal thickness until it’s washed again. When washed and dried, the pillow regains its full bounce.

 One challenge we’ve faced has been creating a pillow that will last a long time because we as parents value durabillity. That’s why we’ve chosen to go with the highest quality available. It’s machine washable in case the pillow gets spilled on or experiences any of the many unimaginable situations your toddler will no doubt put the pillow through. We’ve also decided to include a 3 year “OutGrow it Guarantee.” We’re certain your pillow will last.

 Also, we’ve chosen to partner with Amazon to fulfill our orders because of their trust and dependability. They’ve taken great care of us as customers and their support is top notch. We care about doing things right and this strategic partnership will allow us to reliably and dependably ship the pillows to your home.

 We are a husband and wife (and parent) team and live in Indianapolis, IN. We’ve been married for 6 years and have a beautiful daughter, Emilie. When we’re not making pillows and serving our customers, you’ll find us spending our time with our daughter, 2 black labs. We love food, craft beer, traveling and making new friends.
