Organic Nights’ mission is to provide the healthiest ethical organic sleepwear cocoon for children while they sleep.
We create 100% GOTS-Certified Organic Cotton sleepwear and muslins for children, from newborns to 11 years of age, to give families peace of mind that their little ones are nurtured while they slumber. After all, when children enjoy quality sleep, they heal, recharge, dream and grow.
Our vision (a work in progress!) is to not only create beautiful, soft, health-supporting sleepwear for little bodies, but also to support parents in creating nurturing, connected and loving bedtimes for their children (and themselves!) to care for their little minds, bodies and souls as they drift off to sleep feeling loved, safe and secure.
Parents want to make healthy choices for their families. They are hungry for knowledge and support as they learn more about how to reduce the toxic load in their homes. Sleepwear is an important piece in the puzzle because children sleep for up to 12 hours every day. If a child’s sleep time is clean and healthy, then that equates to half of their young life being toxin-free.
More parents are learning that there is a dangerous slew of synthetic chemicals and treatments used in conventional pyjama production, with trace residues left in the material.
With our range, parents can be sure that their children’s sleepwear is free of toxic dyes, bleaches, softeners or treatments – that means NO:
…all of which have the potential to negatively impact their children’s health and wellbeing as well as damage the environment, local waterways and aquatic life.
We want parents to have peace of mind and know that they can safely strike the resulting health implications and risks off their list of concerns when their children wear our Organic Nights’ pieces.
Why this is important is that, whilst clothing made from Organic Cotton is a great step in the right direction, it is not enough. Organic Cotton can then still enter the normal textile manufacturing chain which has all the risks associated with the chemical cocktails used in conventional sleepwear manufacturing.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world leading processing standard for textiles made from certified organic material and it includes strict environmental and social criteria for operations along the entire supply chain, from seed to seam.
It therefore not only protects farmers and their lands with the organic cotton production, but as it encompasses the whole chain it also protects the health, safety and livelihood of factory workers, the environment and waterways and then the end consumer – all the little ones that wear our sleepwear.
We are two sisters living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast after traveling the world. Our boutique label is Australian designed and owned and we work with and support many other wonderful women in small businesses who are also wanting to be part of this conscious change that is needed in our world.
After a very arduous application process, with plenty of paperwork and processes, we are very proud to share that we have just achieved an extra certification – GOTS-Certification as a Business!
This additional certification makes us one of a few in Australia to achieve this gold stamp of approval by the Global Organic Textile Standard governing body.
This is important as it gives our customers the confidence and surety that when they consciously choose to spend their money with us, they are making the difference that they believe they are – with their children and this earth – as our sleepwear is what it says it is. This certification demands full transparency in our business with no greenwashing allowed!
Beautiful designs that celebrate the purity and innocence of childhood. We hope that when you see and touch our pieces you can imagine children feeling soothed, loved and nurtured to sleep in our soft and sweet patterns. We hope you feel the goodness and authenticity behind our label. We are committed to being a part of this pure, kind and honest wave of business that we are seeing in Australia, such as with The Conscious Space (thank you!) and across the globe.
We launched Organic Nights in 2018 because we wanted to play our part in bringing beauty, goodness and health to our world. Nichola is a veterinarian by trade, with an MBA, and I (Frances) am a writer. We felt that we could create something special together. Many years ago we were looking for beautiful organic sleepwear for our young children (we have three little ones each) and soon realised there were few options for pyjamas that were beautiful, simple and soothing while being produced to the strictest 100% GOTS-Certified Organic standards with no nasty toxins involved – all at the same time. There also weren’t many options for children as they grew out of the toddler years – we wanted to keep our children young for as long as possible. Like most mothers, we believe sleep is precious and paramount. We too worship it like the sun! We suddenly realised that sleepwear would give us, and other parents, the peace of mind that for at least 12 hours each day our children would be free of toxins and nourished. If we can offer our children a pure, toxin-free environment in which to slumber for half of their every day, then we are winning. And we all need to celebrate the wins!
