GIVE YOUR BABY THE BEST START TO LIFE: Our aim is to help raise happy, healthy babies and toddlers by relieving them of some of the thousands of chemicals in every day use. We recommend you avoid placing babies tiny body on or near any conventional baby bedding that has fire retardants, water-proofing, harmful glues or dyes. Some are sold as ‘Non-iron’, ‘Easy care’, ‘Wrinkle free‘, ‘Permanent press’, ‘Ultra Fresh’, ‘Water-proof’ and ‘Flame proof’. They might sound good, but these are all chemical additives.
WHERE TO BEGIN: If you sleep them on products made from 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) Certified Organic Cotton, you can be at peace knowing for sure, they are NOT breathing in any toxic fumes. Start by providing them with a sound and healthy sleep on an Organic Cotton Mattress topped with an Organic Mattress Overlay and an Organic Mattress Protector to provide the best Water-Resistance possible using purely Certified Organic fabrics, and naturally covered with fresh Organic Cotton Sheets, Quilt and Quilt Cover or a soft Organic Fleece Blanket.
ORGANIC BABY CLOTHES: We also have a lovely range of Organic Baby Clothes and Toys made from 100% Certified Organic Fabrics and Fillings.

All our Timber BEDS, BUNKS, TRUNDLES, SOFAS, COTS, BED SIDE TABLES and OTHER FURNITURE are made specially for us by two master craftsmen brothers in South Gippsland, using mostly Victorian Ash purchased from a local mill reducing carbon footprint and some Tasmanian oak, not available from local mill; both being a eucalypt and obtained from managed plantations.. NO Harmful Finishes, NO MDF, NO Chipboard, NO Chemical Paint, NO Fumigation and NO Toxic Glues are used during any part of the manufacturing process.
Organature uses AG Brown Sawmill timber as they are, and from our experience always have been, conscious of the importance of sustainability and source only from sustainably managed forests.
They are ‘Chain of Custody Certified’ by Responsible Wood and previous to this organisation, Browns was certified under the Forest Stewardship Council. This certification tracks the process and is inclusive of the source of timber from sustainably managed forests.
Choose raw and sanded, or with non-toxic natural plant and mineral based oil in several colours. Minimal PVA glue used in joints, dries rock hard between timbers, no out-gassing. Decorative bolts included, special key supplied and components are numbered for ease of assembly. Slats are NOT oiled or painted.
An important note about finishes:
Applying natural oil on NATURAL raw timber is a completely different procedure than using chemical oils which if fact are not oils but “STAINS”.
“LIVOS” oils which we use on all furniture are applied and left for 20 minutes for the oil and pigment to penetrate into the timber, after which the excess oil is wiped off and left to dry naturally. Depending on the weather it can take several days to become dry enough to handle. Mechanical drying is not possible.
Only one coat is applied which is sufficient with these natural oils. A second coat sometimes makes it darker but would still appear the same as one coat; ‘Dark and Light shading’. With more coats the drying takes longer.
Timber varies, not just from from tree to tree, also within the tree depending where it is cut from and age of the tree.
The end grain of the cut timber absorbs more oil and in turn pigment then it absorbs along the grain and causes the variation in density of the pigment.
Oiling, wiping and more drying time is time consuming and therefore we would have to charge more. With tests we have found that more applications of the pigmented oil makes very little difference.
Bear in mind that it is natural timber and not laminate, therefore the finish is unique to each piece of timber.
If we want a healthier life than we must take steps backwards and get rid of the many chemicals.
