Bekapok

 

The Kapok tree, scientifically known as Ceiba pentandra, is a tree that grows in the tropical regions of West Africa and Southeast Asia.

The Kapok tree produces seed pods that contain seeds covered in fine and soft hairs. These hairs, known as Kapok fiber, are lightweight, buoyant, water-resistant, and resilient. The fiber is often compared to wool and is sometimes referred to as “vegetable wool”.

One of the advantages of Kapok fiber is its natural and organic origin. The Kapok tree grows spontaneously without the need for fertilizers or pesticides, and its extraction does not require intensive farming practices. This makes Kapok fiber environmentally friendly and sustainable.
