noo noo (8)
noo noo founder, Fiona Odering, has a love for nature and believes it is good for the soul and should be intertwined in everyone’s lives, especially little ones. She also believes that if more natural products are used it will be better for our planet too. With this philosophy, Fiona aims to source natural products that are also made with kindness.
Where we source our products
Our clothing is sourced from a small factory in China that specialises in planting, researching and producing organic cotton products. They grow without using harmful fertilisers, pesticides and prohibit transgenic. Through the manufacturing processing, there are no harmful chemicals used either. These processes are all environmentally friendly and all clothing has OEKO-TEX ® Standard 100 (Class 1) and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification.
All our wooden products are sourced as components from a certified supplier from China. The teethers and garlands are then made in New Zealand by the noo noo team. Some beads are painted and we use Resene Lumbersider, a waterborne nontoxic paint. The beech wood components are food grade safe and have a range of certification including AS/NZS 8124 which applies to New Zealand and Australia.
The OEKO-TEX ® Standard 100 (Class 1) is a globally uniform testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production with the aim of completely eliminating harmful substances.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres.
AS/NZS 8124 covers many aspects such as the structural characteristics, flammability, and toxicity of toys and the safety aspects of activity-type toys.
