'Nok on' mae' Greetings, whats news?
I am away until the 22nd of December 2014. Yep its time to go hit the trails and find those treasures. I apologise for not posting more treasures to the shop this past year, I started University studying Sustainability and Development and Indonesian,,,just to make sure I keep good and busy.
Our elves are on deck in Australia if you wish to order something special from our catalog. Best to email me with your request or you are welcome to use the shopping cart. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas season and look forward to 2015.
Natural Vegan Non-toxic, Sustainable, KAPOK fiber bedding, doona's quilts duvets, pillows and mattresses. All your alternative bedding answers are here with chemical free long lasting Kapok. We are using a new technique to 'blow' our kapok pillows and doona's and I am sure you will all be really pleased with the results.
Because we make the doona's here in Australia we are able to offer a personalised service. We have noted that in some couples one of the partners sleeps hot and the other sleeps cold....we have a solution, for a little extra we can make your queen or king size doona 1/2-1/2, in other words we can make one side of it with summer weight kapok fill and the other half with winter weight. Tailor made doona's. Send us an email with your requirements and we will contact you.
See under KAPOK in the category listings to the left for our other kapok products.

Timor is a land of contrast which could not be shown more clearly than by these OJEK riders who were having a free dress day. These tireless fellows ferry villagers and goods to and from their kampungs off the Trans the Timor Highway that runs like a twisted spine along the mountainous center of the island. The roads they traverse are like the ribs off the spine that carry hum of daily life in Timor are often treacherous and usually eroded and heavily potholed (and we are not even talking about wet season travel here).
My Canadian compatriot Aja and I left the animist village of Boti late one afternoon having gone in to pay our respects to the family after the death of the King Ama Usif Benu. We were walking out along the river bed, as the sun was setting and with miles to go, in the company of 2 Botinese traders. It was clear after a few kilometers we were not going to make the main road before pitch dark so Pak Simon ran off up a side track and enlisted his son and a friend to get us to the main road to catch a night bus, ...that is when I found out just how amazing the OJEK riders (motorcycle taxis) are....forging along boulder strewn river beds, up steep hillsides rife with landslides, adhering to 10cm wide goat tracks all on scooters of 100cc or less...these guys are a doco waiting to be made!. For more adventures clik at the top left of home page underneath the paypal sign...into JULIES SITE and go on an adventure with me.
