I am an Earthlite fan. They have high quality massage products for both the professional and amateur masseuse. This bolster is made of a durable vinyl material, but not the cheap sort. Its almost leather like. It comes in several colors to match you aesthetic or current table. The bolster is soft enough for comfort but also the correct firmness to help fold the limbs and muscles for ergonomics and proper technique. Overall I highly recommend this bolster and Earthlite in general.
