Safe For Allergy, Asthma And Chemical Sensitive
The Only Organic Cotton Mattress Made in Australia
Organature is the ONLY manufacturer producing genuine organic cotton futons and innerspring mattresses in Australia.
Everything we make and use has been thoughtfully chosen with Asthma, Allergy and Chemically Sensitive Sufferers in mind, right down to the packaging.
Why Do We Make Pure Organic Products?
One of our founders, Peter, was diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (M.C.S.) in 1993. He was forced to give up work as a result. There is no total cure for this strange ailment which can strike anyone at any time. Read more about Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome HERE.
When we were researching M.C.S. we discovered that many people are already allergic to perfume and deodorant (due to the chemicals they contain), and can feel tired, experience difficulty breathing, have asthma attacks and get rashes or other allergic reactions, some without even realising the cause!
Treatment for Chemical Sensitivity – At this time, the only recognised remedy and precaution for Chemical Sensitivity is the ‘Avoidance of Chemicals’.
As a chemical sensitivity or asthma sufferer, it is vital to get your rest without the effects of chemicals. Avoiding the traditional bedding products including sheets, pillows and bed linen (which are often treated with potentially allergy causing chemicals), is really important in helping you FEEL BETTER.
Why Is Regular Bedding And Bed Linen Bad For Us? – Conventional cotton sheets often contain chemicals such as formaldehyde to make them ‘Non-iron’, ‘Easy care’, ‘Wrinkle free’, ‘ Permanently pressed’, ‘Flame proof’ and many other fancy names.
Feeling Better By Using Organic Products – To minimise exposure to the harmful chemicals that were making Peter so sick that he couldn’t work and could barely even get out of bed, we use ONLY Organic products in our home (with special emphasis on what we sleep on and under), and have witnessed massive improvements in Peters’ health, due to these changes.
Organature was created because there was no Cotton Bedding Manufacturer using clean and safe Organic practices in Australia. Research showed there were also many other Australians with symptoms caused by reactions to chemicals and we decided to make, import where necessary and supply the range of Organic Cotton goods that people were so desperately needing to regain their health.
Only Safe Organic Products and Packaging Are Used
All Organature bedlinen and other bedding products are made in Australia in our own sewing rooms under strict clean conditions. Our requirements to supply HEALTHY PRODUCTS to the public which are NOT contaminated by outgassing from other products, are *stricter than organic certification requirements.
*Our manufacturing area and sewing room walls are painted with natural organic paint, the cutting table is Australian hardwood, (we DO NOT use chipboard or MDF), we are a family business and none of its’ members use synthetic fragrances from perfumes, deodorants, aftershave, hand creams, personal care products etc.
We follow the European Organic certification standard which is more stringent and health promoting. We don’t use the American standard because it allows certain chemicals to be used in fabrics, like fabric whiteners, which are not allowed in Europe.
We control all aspects of the fabric production, the products we manufacture ourselves and those we have made especially for us….without contamination from outside sources.
Our mattresses, quilts and pillows are the only ones available in Australia which are filled with Australian Grown Organic Cotton and comply with very strict organic specifications.
About The Packaging Materials We Use
An Organature mattress or futon is first packed in a handy draw string bag made specially from our organic cotton fabric and then meticulously wrapped in multi layers plastic for transport.
Mattress and futon of all sizes (including Cot mattresses and futons for babies) are first packed in an Organic Cotton bag, then placed into a carton for sending by post. This gives extra protection between the mattresses and the outer wrapping.
Organature bedlinen products are packed in cellophane, NOT plastic or plastic that looks like cellophane. Quilts pillows and mattresses are packed in bags made from our organic cotton Aus-Satin Poplin, ideal to be used for storage.
Organic cotton and cellophane are both natural materials, they are bio-degradable, and when used or worn out, can go into your compost.
Why Do We Go To So Much Trouble Packaging Our Organic Goods?
…because we care that you receive your new mattress, bedding, futon, sheets, pillows, towels, clothes, baby products, blankets, rugs or any other organic products we sell, in the best possible condition.
Organature offer the BEST ORGANIC QUALITY and at a very REASONABLE PRICE.
We hope our products will improve the quality of your life.
