I use pillow made from Cotton Sponge. This is the only thing which we are using for making pillow for a long time now. Although my mum uses old clothes also to make pillows but I do'nt like those as they are not as smooth and soft as cotton pillow. So, what is your choice of making a pillow? You didn't share your choice?

I used to have cotton pillows when I was a kid, I used it when I was doing my studies too. When I got a job, I shfited to a city and continued using the same kind of cotton pillows provided by my hostel. You can't except something great from hostels. When I was married and shifted to my husband's house, I started using sponge or foarm pillows. My husband likes them. He is very particular that the pillow should be good, otherwise he won't be able to sleep properly. I won't care much about pillows. But, I would prefer to have the same pillows with cotton inside, if I get a choice.

Yes!Cotton pillows are best suited for our Indian climate.We are living in a hot country and so cotton pillows are used widely.Sponge or foam pillows can be used in cold weather days and in a/c rooms.Still cotton pillows are natural and so itr can't be ruled out simply for convenience.The negative point is it loses its shape soon unlike artificial stuffed pillows.Cheers!

previously in my small age,in our house we have cotton pillows only and they stage for long time than others .in my parents house,once one person made pillows by hand that stayed for more days .may be for 20 years they stayed i think. now a days as i am in other country we get here nylon or spong stuffed material in pillows i think. so we have to use that only here .they will not stay for long time. before two years we bought them,but they are not good now ,as they became thin now. i think cotton is best.

Even cotton pillows will lose their shape in few months.I really wonder those hand made ones which lasted for 20 years.Do you really mean it?What stuff they are made of?Did you take care to put them under the sun periodically to maintain them hygenic?About the nylon stuffed pillows they are not good for the hot climate countries.Cheers!

My pillows are all made up of cotton. don't like pillows that are made up of silk. I like cottons because it is so fresh and the comfort of your pillow affects your sleeping a lot. That is why it is important to select you best pillows for sleeping so that you can get a good night sleep or just the sleep that you needed.

all of my pillows are made of cotton, i like to sleep in it because it's soft. i don't like pillows that are made of sponge sheet because you cannot fold it and it is sometimes hard . i also like bird's feather, but i know it's more expensive but you can guarantee it's softness.

I prefer cotton-filled pillows. I love a soft pillow and I hate pillows with cloth fillings. I remember when I was in my father's province the pillow they use there is made of cloth fillings so it is very hard and heavy. I do not want a rough and hard pillow because I can't sleep comfortable. I would rather sleep in a blanket without pillow at least I will feel comfortable because it is soft that to use a hard pillow that will just give me an ache in the neck.

It is a way to live frugal,using worn out clothes and like that to fill in a pillow.We use worn out sarees to make beds.They are easy to handle and even to clean.But I haven't used a pillow like that.Sure,it won't have any softness and as you said,it is better to sleep without pillow in that case.Cheers!
