The original purpose of the 140 cm bolster was to raise the sleeper's body, thus avoiding the back-lying position associated with death. Nowadays, it is a popular bedding item for its aesthetic appeal and the possibility it offers of enhancing the pillows or decorative cushions on the bed. It's also popular with leading hotels. The 140 cm bolster adds comfort to bedtime, slipping under the pillow or replacing it. Filled with refined down or soft microfibre, wrapped in luxurious cotton satin, it will provide a subtle, tailor-made welcome to the sleeper's nights.
