WE MANUFACTURE ABOVE ORGANIC CERTIFICATION STANDARDS

Organature® works to European Organic Standards, as Australian and U.S. certifications are not good enough for Peter, our founder, who for many years suffered severely from M.C.S. (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity). He now only produces and supplies products that are safe for his own use, and those he has fully researched.

We go to enormous lengths to provide you with these genuinely cleaner, healthier, chemical free goods. It all comes from a very personal level.

PLEASE READ: What Does Certification Really Mean

EVEN OUR FURNITURE IS BETTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE ON THE MARKET

All our Hardwood Timber Furniture, beds, bedside tables, chests, couches, trundles and bunks are Made In Australia specially for us with locally sourced “Victorian Mountain Ash” from managed plantations. No Toxic chemicals, No MDF, No Chipboard, No Chemical Paint and No Toxic Glues are used during any part of the manufacturing process.

PLEASE READ: Why Our Furniture Is A Healthier Option

Do not be misled. Cotton IS a natural fibre but just because a label states cotton, it is not always totally natural. There are more chemicals used on conventional cotton than on any other crop. Chemicals are used to grow, harvest and process conventional cotton. Chemicals are then used to make the conventional cotton fabric ‘easy care’, ‘wrinkle free’, ‘down proof’ etc.
We wrap all of our bed linen in true biodegradable cellophane, (cellulose film), not plastic that looks like cellophane. As so many people these days suffer with petrochemical sensitivities we try to avoid plastic products wherever it is possible to do so.

Our pillows, quilts, mattresses, futons and toppers are packed in an organic cotton bag before being placed in a cardboard carton for storage and then dispatch. Larger size Innerspring Mattresses are also stored in an organic cotton bag before being wrapped in two layers of plastic bag before dispatch

Most of our bed linen items are sent via Australia Post; however mattresses and other larger items will be sent by a specialist courier.

Goods Sent By Freight Companies

‘Organature’ is not the freight company. ‘Organature’ obtain freight charges from a transport company on your behalf and in some instances, if available, transit insurance.   These charges are paid by ‘Organature’ on your behalf and appear on your invoice as a separate freight charge for re-imbursement. Organature is not responsible for transit once the parcels have been picked up by the transport company from our despatch.

TNT gives estimated delivery dates, however they do not guarantee it will get there on that date. The time they deliver is between 8:30am-5:30pm. If you are not home when they deliver they are supposed to leave a note and it is then up to you to make contact with TNT to arrange delivery. If redelivery is needed the cost will be at your expense. Organature will call for credit card details any time up to 4 weeks after delivery.

Air Road Direct has many different options. If requested they can call before delivery. If you would like it left then it can be arranged. They will give a delivery date and there are options to have it delivered in either the morning or afternoon, however there will be an extra charge for this service. If you are not prepared to pay the extra then they will deliver between 8:30-5:30. As above, if not home they will leave a note then it is up to you to arrange delivery. If redelivery is needed the cost will be at your expense. Organature will call for credit card details before redeliver will occur.

Combined Shipping

Number of parcels; Our operation is from three different locations, which is one of the reasons why freight/postage cannot be combined. Freight company’s charges are based on volume/weight and combining several parcels will not freight any cheaper. Most bedding and linen are sent by post, mattresses and furniture by freight from two different locations. Sometimes they may arrive at same time. With each separate delivery the parcels are marked with the number of parcels if there are more than one. Sometimes the freight company do not deliver all parcels at the same time. Please wait a few days before contacting us for follow up.

To Safeguard Your Interest

Whether the outer packaging is damaged or is not damaged; do not automatically sign in the space provided. Instead, write across the delivery receipt “Pending Final Inspection” and sign under that wording. The parcel may look perfectly ok on the outside but rough handling can cause damage to the actual product. Should you after opening find damage, email the consignment number, shown on a label on outside of package, to sales@organature.com.au together with short explanation and photos of all damage(s). Transport companies will not honour any complaints and/or claims if these procedures are not followed and finalised within 24 hours. If goods are damaged and you have signed without wording “Parcel Damaged Pending Final Inspection” claims are no longer honoured. If you give permission to leave goods at a certain point on your property and there is any damage, claims will not be honoured by transport companies or their insurance providers.

Bedding And Other Items Sent With Australia Post

In most instances an Australia Post label with the wording “DO NOT SAFE DROP”, is on the parcel.  This means that the parcel is not allowed to be left at your property unless you are home to receive it. If this is the case, they are to leave a card notifying you of the parcel and take it back to your local Post Office. Unfortunately there are occasions when Australia Post do not leave a card and we suggest if you have not received your parcel within 7 working days (allow 10 days for W.A.) you contact your local Post Office.

Packaging For Maximum Protection

All ‘Organature’ items transported by freight are triple packed for weather protection. Firstly in an organic calico bag, then plastic bag followed by the outer carton. Other goods are packed, firstly in an organic cotton bag or in true cellulose film depending on product, then the outer carton or heavy duty paper.

Do not hesitate to contact us: Should you require any further information please phone us on (03) 5678 5444 between 9am – 4pm Monday to Friday. If you need to leave a message, please speak clearly and repeat your telephone number slowly.     

Kind regards from the Organature team.

If after 14 working days your order has still not been delivered, you can contact us by e-mail or phone and we will investigate this for you.

Some things to consider in the meantime are:
1. Is my parcel awaiting collection from my local Post Office? Occasionally the postman or postlady forgets to leave you a card if you were out (yes, even if they are very reliable, everyone has the odd off-day … even us!!), so you don’t know your parcel is waiting to be picked up! It’s well worth a telephone call just to check.
2. Did I ask for my parcel to be left in a secure place if I was out? Have you checked these places, and/or checked with your neighbours?
3. Did I enter the correct delivery address for my order? Did I enter the house name or number and the full postal code? Have you recently moved house and, in the sheer chaos of things, forgotten to update us with your new address?
4. Have I checked my e-mails and answer-phone to check for messages from Australia Post?

All of our cotton fillings and fabrics are Certified Organic *GOTS and certified. We supply a certification statement on each and every invoice. ‘Org-Terry’ products are imported, made from certified organic cotton yarn and processed to organic standard.

*GOTS = Global Organic Textiles Standard; Sustainable Textiles.

Our sewing room and dispatch area has standards even higher than those demanded for certification.

Our sewing room walls are painted with organic paint, our cutting table is made from Australian Hardwood (not MDF or Chipboard) our staff are not allowed to use scented commercial toiletry products, eg. Hand creams, perfume and aftershave and we wrap our products in cellophane or organic cotton, NOT PLASTIC even though wrapping in plastic is allowable under certification standards.

All of our fabric and cotton suppliers are members of:

    

From its inception Organic certification has always encompassed fair pay (“fair trade”) and working condition from farm to end product, “Fair Trade “certification does not necessarily encompass organic! All of our products are made here in Australia according to Australian work standards. Our staff work in clean, safe, hygienic working conditions and work for a fair wage.

Our cotton fabrics and cotton for carded filling are from our “Certified Organic” mill in India which does all of the spinning, weaving, dyeing and finishing.

Yes, our products are Vegan. We do not use animal ingredients or exploit animals in any way during the transportation or manufacture of our products: no meat, milk, eggs, honey, wool, goose down, or leather is ever used.

Our fabrics, filling, garments and other products are NOT fumigated or irradiated.
We import and will wholesale fabrics and towels. Our other products are available to wholesale only under certain circumstance. For further information please contact us directly. We do not supply to ‘online only’ sellers.
Like ALL cotton products, organic cotton will shrink if washed or tumble dried in temperatures above 40 C. Do not wash or tumble dry above 40 C.
Can I wash my Organature Organic Cotton Quilt or Pillow?

Quilts and pillows made with 100% cotton are prone to clump and shrink if they are washed. (Conventional cotton quilts that can be washed will have a portion of polyester and/or chemicals added to make them washable).

Any soiling should be removed only with a damp cloth, and bi-carb soda should be used to soak up moisture. Re-apply the bi-carb soda as necessary until the area is mostly dry, and then complete the drying process using a hair dryer, on low setting, not too close to the item and on both sides.
Ensure the quilt is fully dried as moisture may allow mould to develop. Hang out to air in sunshine where possible to aid with airing.

If very badly soiled you could wash it gently in cold water by squeezing the affected area, (do not use washing machine action), absorb excess wetting with towels as much as possible and hang on line. May also be put in tumble dryer on low setting, tumble for 5-10 minutes, take out, fluff out and repeat until dry.

Yes, a bit, but don’t worry! Organic cotton isn’t coated with the nasty resins that conventional cotton uses to prevent shrinking. It can shrink up to 5%, but we’ve cut the items to take that into account.

All our suppliers use ‘low impact dyes’ which mean they reduce the environmental impact of textile manufacturing. None of our dyes contain hazardous chemicals.  No dye setter is used in the process of dyeing the cotton, and the process we use is low VOC, no AZO and there are NO heavy metals, nerve toxins or formaldehyde used, which is common in conventional cotton dyeing. Any other dyeing such as vegetable or herb is not a feasibly, nor economical viable.

GOTS control standard prohibits any hazardous chemicals and pesticides being used at any stage of the production of our clothing, bedding, bedlinen, mattresses and futons. All stages of the organic products lifecycle are taken into account with regards to prohibited chemicals and substances, from the cotton growing, dying of yarn/ fabric, printing, finishing. For more information on exact processes and substances prohibited they can visit the GOTS website – http://www.global-standard.org/

GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard. It is recognised as the leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres worldwide. It defines the highest level environmental and social standards.

The aim of the standard is to define requirements to ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labeling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.

Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become certified according to GOTS. All chemical inputs e.g. dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria and also the choice of accessories is limited under ecological aspects. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social minimum criteria.

For more information visit http://www.global-standard.org

We recommend that you always use an Organature ‘Org-Suede Flannel’ mattress protector. Our mattresses and protectors are not treated with moisture repellent chemicals. Contact us by phone for a hint to avoid wetting penetrating into mattress.

Liquid spills should be mopped up with a damp cloth and then blown dry or aired in the sun.

If soiled, sprinkle bi-carbonate of soda on the moisture, scrape off with knife, repeat if required, sponge with a ratio of ¼ vinegar and ¾ water solution and dry with hair dryer on BOTH sides.

Vacuum and air the mattress and mattress protector regularly to minimize dustmite problems.

Protectors are machine washable under 40 C.

Cotton, Wool, or any other Natural fibre; Coir, Coconut fibre, Hemp, Bamboo and Kapok Mattresses are typically firmer than synthetic ones. This is because unlike synthetic materials, natural fibres do not have a “memory” and do not return as readily to the original shape.

After initial settling in, (some may feel that it is soft initially), the innerspring mattress will provide you with medium firm to firm mattress. A futon is soft when first received but will become a bit harder as the cotton compresses; a futon style mattress becomes harder than an innerspring.

Unless you have slept on an ALL cotton futon previously please contact us for further information so we can advise you accordingly.

They are also ideal for children and if the budget is a bit tight.

Organic certification allows for certain biodegradable/low impact dyes to be used. Organic certification allows oxy, hydrogen peroxide, bleach to provide white fabrics. Although “OB” or Optical Brightener chemicals are permitted to be used under the Global Organic Textiles Standard, (GOTS); they are NOT used on Organature fabrics. OB fabrics and products are sold by some Australian suppliers of Organic Cotton Bed linen and Bedding products.

Chemicals and chlorine bleaches used in non-organic textiles stiffens fabrics and the additional use of chemicals, such as ‘Formaldehyde’ necessitate the use of yet more chemicals to re soften them. These chemicals are like ultra violet light and can reduce the quality of the cotton fibre and shorten the life span.

Don’t be misled by the “Thread Count” fallacy. Thread count is NOT an indication of the quality of the fabrics. A high thread count can be obtained with a thin yarn/thread, and a lower thread count can be obtained with a thicker yarn/thread. The high thread count made with a thinner yarn creates a thinner fabric which is therefore not as durable. “Thread Count” is a marketing tool (mainly used in Australia), to confuse the public about the quality of the fabric.

Some manufacturers claim their fabric has a thread count of 250, 400, even 1000 or more. This relates to the number of threads woven over a square portion of fabric. But does this square relate to a square cm. inch? Or maybe 10cm? Or even 10 inches ? Mostly, this information is simply not disclosed! “Thread Count” has no bearing on the softness of the fabric.

The true test of the quality of the fabric is in the quality of the yarn. The important thing is the type of yarn used and the gsm. (grams per square meter) Before weaving, our Organature Organic cotton has the short fibres removed, meaning you get nothing but a good quality fabric which, as our customers repeatedly tell us is “really beautiful”.

Poplin is a name used for a fine woven fabric.
In our grandmothers day Poplin fabrics were used for quality cotton shirts. And now it seems that some shirt manufactures are getting back to using 100% cotton fabrics instead of a polyester/cotton which has been popular in the non-organic commercial manufacturing industry for many years. Polyester and polyester containing textiles inhibits the body to breathe and results in skin problems for many people.
Percale is also a name used for this poplin fabrics, however percale is made with less yarn per square cm than poplin. Both Poplin and Percale are a tight weave made with combed cotton yarn. The weaving construction of these two fabric types is tighter than sateen – Sateen is a looser and inferior woven fabric in comparison, even though it feels softer.
The Quality and wearability of percale and poplin is superior to sateen due to sateen’s looser weave.
Please be aware that thread count has no bearing on quality of fabrics.
Our Quality Poplin sheeting fabrics and Poplin Sateen sheeting fabrics is 100% certified organic cotton.

“Silk” Cotton is a special strain of cotton, it is 100% True Organic Cotton. There is no ‘silk’ in the pillows.

Silk cotton grows on the Silk-cotton tree, (Bombax ceiba), a native to the Asian tropics. It is an evergreen tree; it is not like the cotton plant. The tree grows naturally in jungle country areas; it is not grown on organized farms, it grows in all types of soil; natural rainfall is enough for this tree to flourish. No artificial fertilizers, no pesticides, no herbicides are used; it is free from GMO; it is naturally clean because it grows high in the Silk-cotton tree. “Silk Cotton” is 100% True Organic. In India it is widely used for pillow filling. India has a hot and humid climate and is similar to many parts of Australia.  And Like Organic Cotton the Silk Cotton fibre helps to reduce the heat from the human body and provides a sound sleep. Silk cotton is very soft and has a luster like silk; hence it is called Silk cotton, there is no ‘silk’ content, there is no ‘cotton’ content, only Cotton Silk.Spinning is not possible from this fibre, however in some instances up to 20% of Silk cotton is mixed with normal Cotton to spin yarn which is then used in Knitting Industry. We currently use Luxury 100% Certified Organic Silk Cotton in our Boomerang and Queen Pillows.

To allow for proper air circulation, for increased effectiveness of the health benefits gained when using these certified organic products on a daily basis and to prevent mould and mildew forming, your organic cotton mattress/futon should always be placed on a good quality slat bed base.

We strongly recommend that you use one of our natural timber slat bed bases in conjunction with your organic cotton mattress, which has been custom made in a healthy environment from Australian plantation hardwood.

NO glues are used in our low bed bases, and NO fumigation processes have taken place.

Mattress protectors are also recommended to save your innerspring mattress or futon from direct spills and soiling.

All Organature mattress and bed bases are supplied in a convenient flat pack which is very easy to assemble. Instructions are provided with your parcel and online. If you follow the assembly instructions, our beds are easy to complete – no nails, and generally no glue has been used, though there may be a minimal amount of non-toxic glue used in the joints of some of our taller beds. Each bed base has a link to a PDF document in its description for the accurate assembly instructions.  Please make sure you use the accurate instructions for your chosen bed base. Or download the appropriate PDF: Bed Assembly Instructions Barossa Daylesford Mansfield Daintree Hawthorn Kingston Apollo Airley Windsor and TrundlesBed Assembly Instructions Maldon Richmond Elliston LauristonBed,  Assembly Instructions Katherine Esperance Eden
Organature Bunk beds are hand crafted with Victorian Hardwood and can be finished in a range of Livo’s natural oils.
Follow the instructions on our downloadable PDF Bunk Bed Assembly Instructions
The slats should really NOT be varnished or painted. The wooden bed bases are supplied in raw timber that’s been sanded smooth to further protect those with sensitivities and allergies. As an option, a “Plant Base Oil Finish” can be applied if you prefer at an extra charge. Should you wish to apply an organic varnish yourself, we suggest that you contact http://www.livos.com.au/
We can supply Leg Extensions for a few of our bed base styles including the Katherine, Esperance and Eden. These particular styles are an open slat base and are more in the style of an original futon mattress bed base. To find out more information please read our document Leg extension information and then get in contact with us via sales@organature.com.au for a cost on enquiry.  
Please DO NOT USE imported timber and timber products (which are most likely fumigated) with your pure organic cotton mattress. We also DO NOT recommend the use of pine due to the high content of terpenes (turpentine). DO NOT use chipboard, MDF or plywood either, or you are decreasing the chances of experiencing the real HEALTH BENEFITS associated with purchasing a pure organic cotton mattress in the first place.
Please contact us directly if you feel you would like to have further information. We’re more than happy to guide you in the most suitable direction for you.

BabeSafe covers were introduced to wrap conventional mattresses containing a variety of harmful chemicals, including nerve toxins.

Certified Organic Cotton Mattresses do not contain these chemicals so there is no need to wrap.

Putting a polythene wrap around a 100% Organic Cotton Mattress is not beneficial and will be harmful as the mattress cannot air properly and may build up condensation which can lead to mildew.

Yes. We’ve done our own testing … and we take the question of baby safety even further than that … doesn’t it make so much more sense to be thoughtful about what babies are inhaling though their nose, ingesting through their mouth and/or absorbing through their skin?

Our aim is to raise happy, healthy babies and toddlers by relieving them of some of the thousands of chemicals in everyday use, that’s why we created our Australian Organic Baby Nursery. We thought about everything, by making sure there are definitely NO chemicals in any of our bedding products like there are in most regular bedding products, NO potential volatile oils such as you would get in pine nursery furniture, NO fumigation of mattress fillings, NO toxic timber finishes etc.

Organature doesn’t follow standards – WE SET THE STANDARDS above and beyond current certification requirements and consumer expectations.

We go back to basics, always recommending you start with the simple things; fresh air, clean water, pure food, organic products, and most importantly, a happy heart.

As far as we can ascertain ‘SIDS’ has never indicated the possibility of chemicals as a cause. We believe chemicals (among other causes) have a very strong bearing on these “sudden deaths”.

Our mattresses have been on the market now the last 12 plus years and we continuously receive positive comments and testimonials. They do start a little softer than conventional foam and rubber mattresses but they do not contain chemicals and are thus far healthier for your baby. As cotton does not have a ‘memory’, it does not bounce back. The surface will become firmer with regular turning of the mattress. Your baby is not heavy and will not sink into the mattress to the extent you would when pressing on the top with your hands.

We sell “organic cotton” mattress covers to protect the top of your mattress but do not recommend enclosing it completely or it will most likely encourage mould, in fact even enclosing the foam inners will create mould, (personal experience). The mattress should NOT be laid on a solid base either, which is a problem in most caravans. Slatted bed bases are the best to allow for proper air circulation.

Putting a polythene wrap around a 100% Organic Cotton Mattress is not beneficial and will be harmful as the mattress cannot air properly and may build up condensation which can lead to mildew.

Freight companies are not the best to take care, so we please ask you to:

  • Upon arrival of mattress or futon do not sign or enter your name, but mark: ”pending inspection”.
  • IF carton is damaged please take a photo before proceeding with opening. Inspect plastic bag in the area where the carton showed damage; if plastic bag is damaged please take photo; follow same procedure for organic fabric bag.
  • Even if you have found no damage so far please inspect mattress/futon carefully.
  • With the innerspring run hands with firm pressure all over both sides.
  • Should you find any irregularities or any type of damage this must be reported by email without delay and attach any photos you may have taken.
  • Is there a guarantee? Providing the advice and recommendations of care in this brochure and any other written advice have been adhered to, we stand by the quality of the fabrics and filling used. A two year warrantee is on springs and workmanship of the mattress under normal domestic use.

There is no paper guarantee, however, we strongly stand by our products and we know that the mattresses will last at least 9 years, as our oldest one is now that old.  The workmanship and manufacturing will last as long as any conventional mattress as long as every care is taken with it and all instructions for caring for your mattress are followed.

All Mattresses, Bed Bases and Timber Furniture is covered by Warranty according to the ACCC (Click here to go to ACCC website)

There is no additional Warranty supplied by Organature as customers are well protected by ACCC Warranty.

Please speak to us about any concerns you may have.

If we are certain our designs and manufacturing process has stayed the same during that time then yes, it is possible. However, no company will assure that something purchased before is identical to what is now being supplied. It depends on what raw material is available and that our manufacturing methods have not changed in any way.

If people want exactly the same, it is wiser to order at the same time.
