3. CHOOSE YOUR QUALITY

Your pillow is one of the most important elements to consider for sleep quality, and your overall health. You will use it for many thousands of hours, so it’s essential to make a well informed choice.


A quality pillow will contribute to your well-being, and with care can last for decades. All St Genève pillows are machine washable, and since the fills are highly purified, they are guaranteed to be hypoallergenic for 5 years.

RESILENCY

Resiliency is the ability of a pillow to puff back up after being pressed down. The higher the quality and loft of the down, the more resilient it will be. Resiliency is directly related to loft – the higher the loft, the greater the resiliency. 


Please note – Down pillows will settle in, becoming somewhat softer in the first weeks. We recommend you choose a pillow with this in mind.
