Then & Now: Happy Holidays 2021

Then & Now: Happy Holidays 2021

We're winding up for the year. It's been a challenging and yet ultimately rewarding one for REMO, having both repatriated the making of our T Shirts and Stripey Things to Australia AND managing to source 100% organic cotton yarn with which to knit the fabrics. It was a big move that paid off. Thanks for coming along for the ride. We also got to launch Melanie's big idea, the Colour Coded Sheet Sets. Finally!


Last night we gathered Tiny Team REMO for 2021 and paid homage to a 30 year REMO Scrabble photo from 1991. See below. We still have the letters, and they put in an appearance around our Christmas "tree". Different scale. Same spirit.

The team are taking a break, and will start sending out orders again on Monday 10 January. Meanwhile, and if you're still stuck for gift ideas, there's always REMO Dollar Gift Vouchers to fall back on. Order them HERE.

Happy Holidays from Remo, Melanie and the Team

Colour Coded Sheet Sets | Organic Cotton | NEW

Enough with the tantalising hints. Today we welcome an exciting new product to our range: 100% organic cotton Colour Coded Sheet Sets!

These sheets are as smart as they are beautiful.

All sheets are tagged with a coloured piece of grosgrain ribbon at the centre base point, and for the top sheets, the ribbon (before being tucked under the mattress) sits face up.

This colour coding enables you to quickly and effortlessly:

1. Identify sheets SIZES in a linen cupboard
2. Know the correct ORIENTATION for any sheet
3. Establish the right way UP for a top sheet
4. CENTRE the sheet on a bed horizontally

As Melanie Giuffré, the originator and determined driver of this idea, says: “The only thing it doesn’t do is make the bed for you!”

So, take the stress out of your sheet changing and order yourself some sets.

REMO Sheets are made in collaboration with Bhumi, an Australian owned Melbourne based company founded by Vinita & Dushyant Baravkar. Bhumi makes sustainable textile products from premium quality 100% organic cotton, produced ethically using Fairtrade practices. They produce the sheets onto which REMO applies its unique and colour-coded sorting system.

FEATURES

- 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton. The Sateen finish is very soft.
- Set includes 1 Fitted Sheet, 1 Flat Sheet and 2 Pillow Cases
- NB: Single comes with 1 Pillow Case
- Fitted Sheet designed with a deep gusset
- Unique REMO Colour Coding System
- Free from chlorine bleach, heavy metals, formaldehyde & aromatic solvents
- Ethically Made in India in Fairtrade factories

REMO Organic Australian T Shirt Maker in the News

REMO Organic Australian T Shirt Maker in the News

Replenishment stocks of Organic Australian REMO T Shirts are on their way to us from Melbourne and will be with us in Bondi by the end of this week. So, here's letting you know that your size is now available to order in plain or across our entire design portfolio.

So, what's so good about these T Shirts?

Enjoyed this piece in last Saturday's Sydney Morning Herald featuring the repatriation of manufacturing to Australia by forward thinking and sustainable Australian brands. We're happy to share with you the fact that the featured textile mill ABMT is the REMO maker.

Take a read of the article. Here are a couple of extracts:

"ABMT is at the cutting edge of sustainable fashion manufacturing: a roof laid with more than 1400 solar panels, an on-site water treatment plant, and hundreds of skylights through which the sun illuminates the factory floor on all but the gloomiest days."

... and this from Julian Collins, ABMT’s global sales manager:

 “We would have an inquiry every day from a start-up brand or established brand wanting to make in Australia,” he says. “For us it’s about picking and choosing which ones can be profitable.”

So ... our Organic Australian partner revealed.

REMO Organic Australian T Shirts

The repatriation of our manufacturing to Australia has been a long term ambition for us, and we started working in earnest on the project last year. It has been tremendously satisfying to work with ABMT and a range of other Australian partners.

Not that this is not a fitted T Shirt, but rather something relaxed and timeless in style. Please refer to the size guide before you order.

Get VAXED

Get VAXED

See what COVID has made us do. We plead lock down.



It started as a one off, a favour for a friend in celebration of her birthday ... yet another personal milestone derailed by COVID-19. Then she started wearing it, and then we started getting requests. We decided that there wasn't a big enough market for the FULLY VAXED original (bad taste reference to Australia's stuttering vaccination rollout) ... so we shortened it to VAXED, leaving it to the wearer to provide further details.

Order your VAXED T Shirts HERE ... but note that first orders will be dispatched no earlier than Monday 19 July due to production team (Mom & Pop) being in lock down.
