We have your questions covered...
Nana Huchy is an established, 100% Australia-owned small business. We have been around a long time & we can't quite believe that in 2022, we celebrated 20 years! Having been in the business for two decades, we have learned many lessons over the years through making mistakes, successful ideas, market research & most importantly, listening to our customers.
One of the things we're asked a lot is where & how our products are made. We are grateful that our customers are asking these important questions & as such, we would love to take the time here to answer honestly.
All our products are designed here in Australia. As much as we would love them to be manufactured here too, we are unable to do this. Aside from the high costs involved, Australia no longer has local factories to accommodate our superior quality & high level of production.
We've worked with the same company in China for over fifteen years. They are a wonderful company to work with & are BSCI Certified (Business Social Compliance Initiative). This means they have been independently audited for various performance areas including but not limited to:
- Ethical Business Behaviour
-Protection of the Environment
-No Child Labour
-No Bonded Labour
-Workers Involvement & Protection
-Decent Work Hours
Of course, we also work with many other small Aussie businesses, for example, printers, stylists, book-keepers, agencies, freight companies, photographers, the list goes on. When you support Nana Huchy, you’re not only supporting a small family business, but the families of our Australian employees too.
Are your products safe for children?
We take child safety very seriously & all our products are independently safety-tested as follows:
-Australian / New Zealand Standard AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2019 (safety aspects related to mechanical & physical properties)
-Australian / New Zealand Standard on Safety of Toys Pass AS/NZS 8124.2:2016 (flammability)
-Australian / New Zealand Standard on Safety of Toys AS/NZS ISO Pass 8124-3:2021 (for toxic elements test)
What are your products made from?
We use a variety of fabrics including cotton, linen, polyester & blends. The interior fill contains polyester fibres and, when applicable, plastic pellets are used to shape and weight the toys. The pellets are safely bagged inline with AS/NZS Child Safety requirements.
Our baby blankets are made from 100% toxin free Oeko-Tex-approved cotton, signifying quality cotton manufacturing.
Do your toys have beaded/plastic eyes?
Where possible, we use a stitched eye. On the occasions when we cannot use stitched eyes, we will use beaded eyes. They are safe, secure & pass the safety tests outlined above.
