Our Parcel and Express Post Satchels are compostable, and your order will be wrapped in recyclable brown paper.

We are proud to send parcels via Australia Post as the processing and shipping of the parcel is carbon neutral. Australia Post calculate how much carbon is used when they process, ship and deliver our parcels using trains, planes and trucks.

This calculation is verified as part of the Climate Active program, which provides guidance on measuring, reducing, offsetting and reporting emissions that occur as a result of our operations.

To balance the emissions footprint and to help Australia Post achieve carbon neutrality, they buy carbon credits through a partnership with Qantas Future Planet. The number of credits purchased matches the calculated emissions for the deliveries provided by customers

Rolls of Fabric – Courier Delivery

Orders that tally up to more than 5kg in weight will automatically be assigned to the courier shipping option. These orders will be rolled onto a cardboard core and wrapped securely in tough weather proof courier wrap.

We work with a variety of courier companies and depending on your location as a city, major country hub or rural, we select the best courier option for your delivery from the network available to us. When your order is completed and shipping confirmation completed you will receive a link to track your courier delivery.

If you would prefer we fold and box your order, please leave us a note in the order (at Checkout there is a note box) and we can make the relevant adjustment to fold your order and ship with Australia Post.

Melbourne to Tasmania can add a few days to the below estimates.

Depending on your location;

  • City to city is usually 1 – 5 days
  • City to country is usually 2 – 8 days
  • City to rural is usually 3 – 14 days

For Customers located in Remote Australia

For remote area postage Australia Post is preferable. If your order offers the option to select Australia post then that is the recommended option for price, timing, and reliability.

If you have a large order on a roll of fabric you will be required to select courier.

Often courier shipping to remote areas is prohibitively slow and can be expensive.

We will contact you if we have concerns regarding shipping location to discuss an alternative which is usually to fold large orders into multiple post satchels or use an alternative courier service. Additional charges or refunds may apply.

For New Zealand Customers

For our New Zealand customers, we use UPS or Auspost depending on your selection at checkout. Orders will either be folded into a satchel or boxed, or rolled onto a fabric tube. For orders over a certain weight rolled onto a fabric tube is the only option.

UPS Express Saver is an international air service.

Estimated delivery is 1-3 business days

At peak times such as Christmas, delivery can be 3-5 business days

Auspost offer both International Express or Standard Post options.

Auspost International Express can take 2-5 business days

Auspost International Post can take 4 – 7 business days, but has been known to take up to 3 weeks depending on your location.

All shipping options are traceable and you will be provided with the tracking details on order completion.
