All Natural Cushion Inserts

At last! We have an all natural alternative to the less-than-desirable polyester cushion inserts. I hope you're excited because I am.

The new 100% corn fibre cushions are now available from our on-line store and complement our all-natural hand-printed cushion covers. Both the inner filling and outer cover is made of the eco-friendly corn fibre.

If you purchase the cushion inserts together with any of our cushion covers, you will have them at a 25% discount - only $15 (AUD) each with free shipping within Australia.

Our Rouge Cottage Garden Organic Cotton/Hemp Cushion is filled with Corn Fibre insert.

I have looked for natural cushion alternatives before but found that previous options were quite expensive. Enter young entrepreneur Tristan Bauer who recognised a niche in the market and now operates Innergreen for corn fibre cushion fillings, toy fillings and natural corn wadding.

Some of the advantages of the corn fibre are: environmentally-friendly, non-allergenic, sustainable, biodegradable, flame retardant (see video) and washable. Stay tuned for my up-coming interview with Tristan and find out how he started his business.

Some of you must enjoy reading my blog and my ramblings as I now have 500 followers. This is cause for celebration so this week I will be putting together a nice prize for a blog giveaway.

Those inserts look awesome! I looked into natural inserts and found one - I can't remember what it was made of but it was at least double the price.

Thea thanks for the info. I see you have them in a 45 x45 size. Does the manufacturer make them in any other sizes....Terese

Thea said...

Hi Terese, the manufacturer also makes the cushions in square sizes ranging from 40 x 40 cm right up to 65 x 65 cm. I hope that helps.

Hi Thea,

I've just got myself some of these too. A bit too puffy for my liking but LOVE how sustainable they are. The only thing I don't get is the plastic and metal zipper on the inserts .. sustainable? I think not. And why include it anyway? Though I must say I'm delighted that the zipper is there because it is very easy to pull out some of that puffy corn fibre and make it a bit flatter which is how I prefer it.

When you interview Tristan could you ask him about those zippers?

Was just about to blog about InnerGreen too but you've done a great job .. look forward to the interview.

Thea said...

HI Carmel, you make some valid points. I also thought that the cushions were a little over-stuffed so like that the zippers are there to adjust the filling to taste. I Have forwarded your comment to Tristan so he will need to address those issues. Will keep you posted.
