Furniture stuffed with horsehair.

    Recommended Posts

    Hello all.


    I'm back in the UK visiting family and would like to ship back home to Adelaide some furniture that my parents have given me.

    These are 3, 70+ years old, mahogany wood pieces; a day bed, a captains bucket chair and a lady's tall chair. The thing that is worrying me is that these all have horse hair as their stuffing, and I can't find a definitive answer on the DIBP website nor the agriculture website as to whether these would be safe to bring into the country.


    Has anyone had this issue with their furniture before? If so what did you do? Is this classed as 'animal origin' (I'm assuming so...)

    When we actually moved and shipped our belongings, I remember how stringent the clearance of items was but we didn't own anything to worry about.


    If if anyone has had any experience of this or wanted to ship items similar but didn't, I'd love to hear from you and how you managed it or didn't!
