Shop for a beautiful yoga bolster online in Australia.  Our Upward Dog yoga bolsters are filled with natural, anti-microbial kapok fibre, sourced ethically from communities in Timor.

We have covered our bolsters with ethically-manufactured linen.  The fabric is printed with designs inspired by the Australian environment, using non-toxic inks.  You can remove the cover for washing, and to place the bolster in the sun.  There, the kapok filling will restore its firm buoyancy.

The weight of these bolsters is right in that sweet spot: they aren’t a brick to drag around, yet your body knows that it is supported.   It is the perfect restorative yoga bolster.  You can yield, and release.  Ahhh.

Filling: anti-microbial kapok fibre sourced from communities in Timor.
Inner shell: calico, sewn in Indonesia.
Outer cover: Ethically made, 100% eco-linen/Belgian linen. Hand-printed with non-AZO inks by Ink and Spindle. Printed and sewn in Melbourne.


100% biodegradable fibres are used, including the filling. Non-AZO inks are used.


Gently spot clean the cover (can be zipped off for cleaning). You can air the cushion in the sun periodically and the kapok will naturally restore its volume. Kapok has a naturally earthy smell that lessens in time and as you give it sunlight. Don't worry, it is naturally anti-microbial.

    Beautifully made bolster, Love the soft fabric and the bolster is the perfect density – not too hard or too soft. If you love to support local and environmentally responsible then this is a perfect choice. I looked at so many and was thrilled with the quality of this bolster when it arrived. Enjoy.
