Goldilocks Natural Bedding founder, Julie Emery has been trading in Timorese handcraft since 1990. Based in the northern rivers New South Wales, Australia, this business began in 1995 as a grass roots collaboration with villagers in West Timor who wild harvest the KapoK and has since expanded to other islands across the Indonesian archipelago.
We use Australian sourced hemp and organic cotton blend and an organic cotton and engage local seamstresses to make the shells/inners for our range. We leave the mattress making to the experts in Java who craft the mats and mattresses in our range."From grass roots to You. Kapok has benefits beyond boundaries"
Goldilocks is cognisant of the impact of our venture. We have examined packaging, eco-miles and cradle to grave components of our business. We exercise stewardship in as many aspects of our product creation as we can. As such we seek to minimise the impact of our products on our planets eco-systems benefiting customers health in a number of ways including using minimal and/or recycled packaging.
It is also our intention to contribute a percentage of profits to culturally and geographically appropriate development projects. Such as a solar cooker we are designing in collaboration with Timorese NGO's.
Sleep on a KapoK mattress, under a KapoK doona; atop a Kapok pillow; and align your body with a KapoK sleep or yoga bolster or meditation cushion.
All Goldilocks Natural Bedding products are filled with Grade 1 Superfine KapoK fiber fill [pictured below] with the exception of our cotton wadding mats. KapoK is the most environmentally friendly, economical, fair trade, chemical free eco fibre fill [lots more great info under INFO].
We specialise in Heavenly Head Pillows, Mattresses, Cot Mattress, Sleep / Yoga / Body pillow bolsters, neck & lumbar rolls, mediation / play / rest mats and zafu / breast feeding cushions. We are working on and trialing a range of doona's that will be superb both in quality and function.
We can provide varying quantities of KapoK fibre filling for you to create your own fabulous KapoK products. KapoK has thermal properties and makes an ideal non-toxic fill for soft toys.
Wild harvested every year from the fallen seed pods of a majestic rainforest tree Ceiba pentandra, kapok fiber needs no processing to use. There are no chemicals used in the growing, processing or importation of our KapoK.
When cleaned we are left with a beautiful golden heavenly soft yet supportive hollow fibre that is so lightweight that it floats! Benefits beyond boundaries.
Kapok has been used for centuries by traditional people throughout the equatorial belt of the globe as their natural non-toxic bedding. Sometimes called jungle silk our kapok is fairly traded with villagers throughout the Indonesian Archipelago. From grass roots to you.
