Frequently Asked Questions

 

IS YOUR ORGANIC COTTON CERTIFIED AND FAIR TRADE?
Absolutely. We only source organic materials with GOTS Certifications (Global Organic Textile Standards) to ensure all material is produced without harmful chemicals and pesticides. All of our suppliers embrace Fair Trade Practices.

MY FITTED SHEET IS A LITTLE LOOSE, WHY?
Glad you asked! We have made our sheet sets a little generous on purpose. Some mattress sizes are slightly larger than normal and to cater for these we have used to our advantage Interlock Cottons natural shrinkage properties. If you have a standard mattress that requires a tighter fit, pop them into the dryer on the hottest setting and the natural fabric shrinkage will give them a snug fit.

WHEN I HOLD MY QUILT UP TO THE LIGHT I CAN SEE SMALL DARK SPOTS INSIDE THE WADDING. WHAT ARE THESE?
Organic cotton wadding is cotton that has had no chemical bleaching and very little interference with the natural cotton fibre. These little spots are actually organic matter bound in the natural cotton fibres. You can usually see them best when you’ve washed the quilt and hold it up to the sunlight. Once dry they are not seen.

I HAVE A KING SINGLE, DO YOU DO THIS SIZE?
Yes. Our Honeycomb Knit blankets suit both single and King Single Beds. And our duvet covers have been deliberately made in Double Bed sizes to cater for King Singles.

IS YOUR TEEPEE TIMBER PLANTATION TIMBER?
Yes. Our timber poles are sourced from renewable plantations.

WHAT IS THE LEAD TIME ON FURNITURE?
Please allow 6-8 weeks on furniture production. We hand make these as each order arises and we will confirm a lead time upon receipt of order.

CAN I CUSTOMISE THE TABLE AND STOOL SET?
Yes. We have made larger and smaller tables to suit individual projects. Just let us know your requirements and we can provide you a quote.
