    For Australian metro delivery please allow 3 - 5 business days, and for rural delivery please allow 4 - 7. We advise to allow 5 - 9 business days for deliveries to WA.

    However, due to COVID-19, Australian orders may take longer.

    For all international orders please allow 10 - 28 days.

    We use Sendle as our provider and at times there may be some situations that can cause unavoidable delays.

     

  • My item says it’s been delivered but it hasn’t arrived. What now?

    If your package has not arrived within a week for Australian orders please contact us at hello@wearenidra.com.

    We hope you can appreciate that during these difficult times with COVID-19 there are occasionally delays which are out of our control. We always do our best to chase orders for you.

    Alternatively you can track your order here: https://try.sendle.com/en-au/tracking

  • Can I use a PO box address for my order?

    Nope. Sendle can’t deliver to Australia Post-owned properties (this includes post offices, PO boxes, locked bags, parcel lockers or parcel collect locations) because Australia Post restricts delivery to these locations.

    If no one is home to receive or sign for the parcel, Sendle will take it to a collection point instead, which may include newsagents or service stations.

General

  • Why the name NIDRA?

    NIDRA (pronounced NID-RA) is Sanskrit for ‘sleep’ or ‘sleepiness’.

    Our brand was built on the idea of using materials that were more ethical and sustainable for the planet and our journey started in India with our first supplier, eco-fashion pioneer Chandra Prakash Jha. We are lso influenced by the philosophy of Nidra Yoga or Yogic Sleep, which is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping.

    We acknowledge that the NIDRA brand uses Sanskrit which is a classic language of South Asia belonging to the Indo-Aryan brand of the Indo-European languages. Sanskrit is now spoken by less than1% of Indians and is mostly used by Hindu priests during religious ceremonies.

  • Your items are pretty expensive, why is that?

    No we aren’t trying to rip you off. Promise!

    Our retail prices are based on the cost of our materials and manufacturing. Because we choose to work with the best fabrics that are ethical, organic, sustainable and luxurious, the process in creating these is often more laborious and time consuming and therefore more expensive.

    We have a premium style of manufacturing and ensure every maker we partner with has the same values as us when it comes to working conditions and the treatment of their employees. This also plays a part in driving up the cost of your goods. We do not cater for everyone and do not aim to play in the ‘fast’ or ‘cheap’ fashion lane. Our ethos is all about creating premium beauty sleep products and loungewear that are good for you and the environment.

  • What silk do you use in your products?

    The silk used for our Face Saver Cases and Hair Saver Scrunchies is organic and a 'non-violence' Mulberry silk, which is know as Ahimsa or Peace silk. The company we partner with is certified Organic and Fair Trade and is the world leader in producing organic silk from cocoons without killing the pupae inside or without sacrificing animal life.

    We use Grade 6A organic Peace silk and as we source our silk from India, we do not use the Japanese rating system of momme, hence why we do not market this in any of our communications. However, grade 6A silk universally is converted to a 22 momme count so you can get an idea of the weight and feel of this luxury fabric.

    You can read more about Peace silk here.

  • Why don’t you do sales or discounts?

    Isn’t it just the worst when you buy something and then a week later it’s on sale!!! YEP!

    Our aim is to not be a seasonal brand or encourage ‘fast’ or ‘disposable’ goods. We create colourways and items that last beyond a season, have longevity and work with each other. We don’t over produce and therefore don’t have too much stock that needs clearing. If there is demand for certain styles and colours, we’ll produce more, if not, we won’t. Simple!

  • Why do you only sell online?

    On average, e-commerce uses about 30% less energy than other retail platforms. This is why we focus our efforts on our online store for the majority of purchases, and also because we love not leaving our bed either, DUH!

    Occasionally we might drag ourselves out of bed to showcase our products and share our commitments at markets or trade shows. These also use much less energy than traditional bricks-and-mortar stores.

  • Why do you share your suppliers? Aren’t you worried someone will steal your ideas?

    Not at all! Our entire ethos is about being as transparent as possible with our customers so that you know exactly where your product has come from, how it has been made and who has made it.

    We want more designers and fashion houses to choose to use ethical and sustainable suppliers, so we will do everything we can to promote this. We get it, it took over almost 2 years to find the suppliers we work with now and it was hard work… but we believe good karma makes the world go round!

  • How can I become a stockist?

    If we find a stockist to partner with who fits our brand and ethos just right, then we’re in baby! If you are interested in stocking NIDRA, get in contact with us at hello@wearenidra.com.
