Toronto-based ticking supplier Fine Cotton Factory has designed a lightweight encasement that the company says gives pillow suppliers a liner that allows the true feel of the pillow to come through.
The liner works well with a variety of fillings, including down, feathers and solid or shredded foam because its construction makes manufacturing more efficient, the company said in a news release.
In addition to its use for bed pillows, the liner is applicable for decorative throw pillows. By keeping the filling contained, the liner allows for easy cleaning or replacement of the external cover, the company said. The polyester liner also helps keep the filling clean.
“Our unique pillow liner is a creative solution for pillow manufacturers and consumers,” said Skip Kann, director of special projects for Fine Cotton Factory. “The liner is lightweight, making it easy to manipulate in the manufacturing process, yet sturdy so that it holds up and doesn’t tear. The whisper-light fabric does nothing to impede the comfort level of pillows.”
The liner’s tubular design speeds manufacturing times by requiring only the ends be sewn or heat sealed, the company said. Available in 18 inches, 20 inches and 22 inches, the liner is white, with custom dyeing available.
