We are delighted to share that the values-based, progressive children's education and care organisation, Montessori, have opened a beautiful new centre in Kambah, Canberra. They chose us to be their exclusive infant and children's bed and pillow supplier. It was a huge job hand-making all of the mattresses, and we loved every minute of it.

Heritage, Part 2.
Tetra was an Australian innovation in 1949. That was when a farmer in West Ryde (New South Wales) stood by a Tea Tree on his property, watching the sunset and rubbing some paperbark between his fingers that he had picked up from the ground. He noticed it was flaking away and floating off in the air. It reminded him of feathers. An idea was borne.

60 years later and Tetra's breathable, natural, pure Tea Tree paperbark flakes, that are lighter then feathers, go into every infant Tetra mattress and pillow we create by hand at our Sydney factory.

In these photos you can see the original Tetra Farmer with a handful of paperbark flakes flying in the wind, and also an image of one of our bark producers starting the process of breaking down the raw paperbark.

Heritage, Part 1. Edits
We have been working with Tea Tree Paperbark for over 60 years. Breathable, natural, pure Tea Tree paperbark flakes that are lighter then feathers go into every infant Tetra mattress and pillow. Here is a photo of our paperbark handlers back in the 1950's. The sustainable use of tea tree is created because the paperbark re-grows and we revisit the tree when that happens.

Template
There have probably been a million Tetra Baby/Kids Pillows and Baby Mattresses made since 1949. Every one of our Tetra products are hand-made but we do use templates, of course. Anyone that's ever made something from fabric will understand!

Here are some of the templates relaxing in our Sydney factory.

Rolling.
Tetra mattresses and pillows are filled with pure tea tree paperbark flakes.

But how do we get bark from a tree to become a clean, light and breathable filling for your babies mattress or children's pillow?

The answer is we do a lot of rolling. Your watching some of our tumblers turning and cleaning the paperbark. We use natural forces to split the wheat from the chaff or, in our case, the flake from the flake.

A Pillow Made a From A Tree.
Check out this Tetra Ad from 1995 (or thereabouts). This illustration was done by hand. Shows our Tea Tree in all its loose leaf glory. And how about that headline?!

Art.
We see beauty in nature and art and often they are the same thing. That is why we just love this wonderful artwork by Australian conceptual artist @karina_jean_sharpe (pls let us know if you'd like us to remove as we've taken the liberty to share). The colours, the shapes, the delightful simplicity of leaves studied precisely in abstraction. Her page is a one of those treasures you stumble upon on Instagram.

Simplicity.
We have absolutely no idea who invented the pillow but it was designed a longtime ago. Thank you whoever you are.
Here's one of our tea tree filled pillows. Well half of one to be exact. They are encased in GOTS certified organic cotton.
