Halfmoon bolsters are the industry standard – uncompromised quality and durability. All of our bolsters are individually hand made to ensure their ideal weight and firmness. The bolster covers are hand sewn with double seams, made from natural fibers and are easily removable and washable, giving your bolster a long life span.
