There is no lovelier place for a baby to be than held by a loved one. Babywearing is the term for carrying a baby in a sling. Snuggled into this secure ‘nest’ reminiscent of the womb, the feeling of being held and rocked is naturally soothing to babies making them safe & content and lulling them Back to Nature.
100% Organic Fabrics
Sadly, most clothing now contains unwanted chemical additives. The natural fibres found in organic clothing are best for your baby’s skin, being free from the contamination of pesticides or artificial fertilisers. The Garments and Soft Toys chosen for our Collections are made with buttery soft, 100% certified organic cotton and non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes. All painted toys and products are finished with non-toxic child-safe paints and lacquers.
Fair Trade Vision
Our Eco-Conscious Commitment is to be People & Planet Friendly. We aim to keep the earth’s resources in balance, emphasising the use of recycled or renewable natural materials and applying sustainable environmental practices. We choose to deal with product importers who ensure that their artisans have safe and healthy places to work and don’t employ child labour, giving the impoverished a chance to thrive and create change for themselves, their families and their communities.
The emphasis on our Collections is to be as friendly to Mother Nature and our precious Planet as possible. The majority of the toys we choose are made from either Rubber Wood or Bamboo; both being sustainable timbers sourced and grown on plantations, assisting impoverished populations.
Sustainability is based on the simple principle that “everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability is important to making sure that we have and will continue to have the water, materials and resources to protect human health and our environment.” Our aim is to contribute to a greener, brighter future for our planet, choosing our products accordingly.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. Aim of the standard is to define world-wide recognised requirements ensuring organic status of textiles, from responsible harvesting of raw materials, through manufacturing & labelling, in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs & auxiliaries must meet certain environmental & toxicological criteria.
Modern manufacturing has made sustainable, eco-friendly products increasingly difficult to find. The world seems full of plastic.
“Many people do not realise that the environment in which we live is just as important to our health as the nutrients we consume. Very few think about the chemicals we are exposing ourselves to in our homes.”
A Wake-Up Story is an award-winning, must-see video for every parent and anyone that cares about the health and development of children.
Green and Sustainable
We bring to our repertoire products that are ethical, organic, sustainable, heirloom and up-cycled. The world is far too quickly filling up with mountains of poly-garbage and gullies of toxic effluent seeping into waterways, all creating destruction. We prefer to choose Green practises to help to minimise this negative impact upon the environment and the people.
Quality also means greener; how well the product performs, & how well it holds up over time. We pay close attention to the aesthetics of our Collection; colours, prints, shapes, textures & intricate features, as well as the finesse of the manufacturing process. These factors set the items apart from cheap run-of-the-mill mass-produced throw-aways.
Keeping Baby Safe
Baby’s safety must never be compromised, hence we only offer items that comply with recognised international safety regulations. Toys for young children come in many shapes, forms & materials. When making purchases, ensure that you only choose products that are suitable for the age bracket that suits the intended child. Download the Keeping Baby Safe Booklet.
Being a family owned and operated business ensures you will receive the most caring attention and assistance, on a one-on-one basis. We are always happy to advise and to offer suggestions and guidance. As a family of five, we understand all about the needs of babies and children, drawing from personal hands-on life experiences. We never offer anything we don’t personally love and approve – and we adore creating & designing, so keep an eye out for upcoming products that stand out from the crowd. We love individuality!
Colour, Fabrics and Design
With all members of our family deeply involved in the arts & creative aspects of life, we relish choosing delightful mixes of colour, texture & good design for the items within our Collection. We lean heavily towards the beautiful & the extraordinary, and certainly love putting together ranges across our product categories. So, if you fall in love with a bunyip, you can be sure he will have wandered into our toys, soft goods & even bedding! Individuality is a must, so we pride ourselves on creating a magical & irresistible portfolio.
Bringing a baby into your family is one of the most wonderful events imaginable, so everyone wants to shower both the baby and the Mummy with something very special to cherish as a keepsake. These very special items are not always easy to find, and particularly ones that are personal to the new family. We pride ourselves in offering some of the most beautiful items available; many of which we personally create and design as a one-of-a-kind (OOAK) made exclusively for you and your precious bundle of joy.
