What our experts say...
This is the most beautiful eye pillow I have ever seen and felt. There are so many things I love about it – stunning, ethical packaging, and it is made with the softest pure lotus fabric. The cover is also removable so it can be washed which I haven’t had with other eye pillows I’ve used. This means the product will last opposed to having to replace it when it gets dirty or oily.
This product has been created from this woman’s heart and it is felt. I resonate with the multi-layered purpose of her business. It is very inspiring to read the difference she is making to mothers in cambodia.

As I place this beautiful pure lotus eye pillow over my eyes in relaxation, my mind is drawn to what the lotus represents in yoga. Rooted in the mud, the lotus blossoms above water symbolising emergence from darkness, the unfolding of what is divine within you and enlightenment. It is very powerful symbolism whose message is further strengthened by the other worldly silky and fine natural fabric against my skin. Exquisitely made and presented, this is the ultimate in self care and luxe savasana.
I love that Acala Stem was established to support mothers in Cambodia to be able to work from home, rather than having to travel long distances for work and put their children in unregulated long term childcare centres/ orphanages.
Every now and then, an Awards finalist product takes my breath away. An incredible amount of heart, soul and thought has gone into the production of this beautiful eye pillow. Woven on the loom with pure lotus silk and organic cotton, the pillow is so soft it’s like clutching a cloud between my palms and placing it over my eyes. A divine and truly grounding addition to any yoga savasana practice. And it is so beautifully presented in the box that it arrives in.
The entire process of production – from the way in which the lotus stems are picked, to the way in which no water, oil or electricity is needed, to the fact that Cambodian mothers are supported and empowered through the supply chain, is all very impressive.
