Anti-Allergy pillow nanoSPACE®– quilted, double-zippered alaskaCode: NS.09.007
Product detailed description
How does nanofabric in Anti-Allergy pillow work?
The nano fabric prevents the collection of dust mites, their allergens, viruses and bacteria in the filling. Imagine the nano fabric as a spider web with openings of only 80nm in size. The size of a dust mite is around 420,000nm, its allergen is 1,000nm in size, bacteria 100-10,000nm, virus around 100nm and scabies 300,000nm. Thus they have no chance to pass through the fabric.
The material is actually a three-layer laminate (sandwich) composed of a 100% polyester microfiber fabric - 90gm2 on the face side, a nanofiber membrane in the middle and a 100% polyester 50gm2 knit on the reverse side. The microfiber and knitted fabric guarantee the softness and smoothness of the material and the nanofiber membrane acts as a barrier fabric.
We guarantee 100% efficiency and safety of the material
The nano fabric prevents the collection of dust mites, their allergens, viruses and bacteria in the filling. Imagine nanofabric as a spider web whose holes are only 80nm in size. The size of a dust mite is around 420,000nm, its allergen is 1,000nm in size, bacteria 100-10,000nm, virus around 100nm and scabies 300,000nm. Thus they have no chance to pass through the fabric.
The effectiveness of the nanofiber membrane was tested by the Textile Testing Institute in Brno (penetration of microorganisms) and the Technical University in Liberec (penetration of dust particles of 1µm). The Public Health Institute in Prague tested skin tolerance and possible allergic reactions.
- effective capture of microorganisms was proven ≥ 99.0 %
- effective capture of dust particles was proven ≥ 99.9 %
- no negative reactions in contact with human skin were proven
Comparison with other antiallergic products
The results of the comparative tests performed by the Technical University of Liberec clearly show that the nanofiber material outperforms other available woven and non-woven barrier fabrics in efficiency, breathability and water vapour permeability and is evaluated as the most effective.
Pleasant and breathable material
We know how important it is to have comfortable pillow. That's why for several years, we have been working with European nanofiber experts to develop a material that is breathable, pleasant to the touch and soft. Today, our bedding is the ideal combination of 100% dust mite protection and comfort.
We recommend washing the nanoSPACE® anti-dust mite pillows 1 - 2 times a year without fabric softener at 40°C for longer life (can be washed at 60°C if necessary) in chlorine and phosphorus free detergent or gel. For example, the following products are also suitable for washing nanofiber materials. We do not recommend machine drying, even at low temperatures.
Composition of the top layer material:
- 99% polyester - microfiber - low surface weight and softness
- 1% polyamide 6 - nanofiber membrane
Composition of fill material:
100% polyester - UNICO ball hollow fibre
Total basis weight:
- 900 g/m2 ± 2 %
- The oxygen molecule is only 0.3 nm in size and can easily pass through the fabric's pores, so the material remains pleasantly breathable.
The used nanoSPACE fabric is certified by the OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100.
Recommendation for people suffering from severe allergies or asthma
We recommend treating the ceiling in the bedroom, and possibly other rooms, with FN NANO® self-cleaning coating, which will eliminate allergens, bacteria and viruses from the air. An equally effective solution is a portable ozone generator, which effectively cleans the air of mould, allergens, viruses (including COVID-19), bacteria and odours...

The Czech company nanoSPACE has been operating on the market since 2012 and focuses primarily on products where nanofiber textiles are used. In 2012, it became the first manufacturer to use a nanofibrous membrane in barrier covers for allergy sufferers. Since then, it has expanded its portfolio to include nano duvets and nano pillows, which are especially suitable for people with dust allergies.
In 2016, it was the first in the world to present functional bed linen that can fully replace barrier coatings. This product line, which bears the name Nanocotton®, was able to combine the functionality of the material with organic cotton and is suitable not only for allergy sufferers, but also for atopic patients.
During the coronavirus epidemic in 2020, nanoSPACE used its long-term knowledge in the field of nanofiber materials and started the production of anti-virus neck gaiters and protective masks made of nanofiber. From 2021, it also produces designer washable nano masks.
In 2021, the nanoSPACE company founded the subsidiary nanoSPACE Technology, which is dedicated to development, research and innovation in the field of nanofiber textiles.
