From allergy sensitive pillows to pet pillows, Tontine has a broad selection of items in its pillow collection. Many of the products are available in different styles, profiles and feels. To help you see what’s on offer, we’ve compiled a list of the different collections currently available from Tontine.
Tontine Pillow Range
Tontine has a variety of pillows in a wide selection fills, sizes and profiles. Some of the styles include:
- Cooling pillows
- Allergy sensitive pillows
- Stain resistant pillows
- European pillows
- Pet pillows
If night sweats are preventing you from waking up nice and refreshed in the morning, pillows like the Cool & Comfy Firm and High Pillow from Tontine feature Hydrocool evaporative moisture management technology, which is stated to move heat and perspiration away from your body. This is said to regulate your body temperature and keep your head dry by encouraging moisture to dissipate and evaporate, therefore wicking away moisture.
These pillows contain Ultrafibre fill, claimed to extend the life of the pillow. The machine washable pillows are also treated with antibacterial protection to minimise the growth of mould and bacteria.
Allergy Sensitive Pillows
Tontine provides a range of allergy sensitive pillows in a variety of styles, profiles and feels. Typically ranging between $19.99 and $39.99, these allergy friendly products are approved by the National Asthma Council of Australia’s Sensitive Choice program. The fill used also prevents the growth of bacteria, mould and dust mites. Each style of pillow is available in a 2-pack and is described to have a premium breathable 100% cotton cover, which features a date stamp to show the freshness of the pillow.
According to the website, the Luxe Anti-Allergy Pillow in the medium profile is the best seller in the range. This has a medium feel and contains antimicrobial protection. The popular pick is one of the pricier items in the collection at $39.99. For those looking for pillows with less fill, Tontine offers the Fibre Fresh Pillow. This item features a soft feel and a low profile, and similarly contains an Ultra-fibre polyester fill. It is also treated with antimicrobial protection to prevent the growth of bacteria, mould, mildew and dust mites. This typically costs $19.99.
Stain Resistant Pillows
Tontine offers stain resistant pillows said to use a unique cotton fabric woven within the material of the pillow to repel and release stain. The I Love a Stain Resistant Pillow is available for $42.99 and features a satin piped finish and premium polyester fill with antimicrobial protection.
Tontine’s European pillows are stated as one of the company’s biggest sellers. The ‘I’m Simply Living Euro Pillow’ has a firm feel and a high profile. Like many of Tontine’s pillows, this product contains an Ultrafibre polyester fill with antimicrobial protection.
Since dogs are man’s best friends, it’s important to make sure that our pooches aren’t sleeping rough. Tontine’s pet pillows like the Bone Pet Pillow and the Paw Pet Pillow are usually $49.99. These items feature a cotton and polyester fill, encased in a removable zip polyester cover.
