They also have the biggest pillow menu I have ever seen, COCO-MAT pillow collection consists of 12 different types of pillows from different materials and sizes, which is suitable for anybody’s build. My favorite one is PILLOW SITHON VIII with the seaweed and eucalyptus leaves to soothe your respiratory system!
