Ironing Board Covers Returning Soon

Ironing Board Covers Returning Soon

Our Ironing Board Covers are returning in February. You can't keep a good product down. Limited quantity. Pre order yours HERE.

The plain cotton canvas is smooth enough not to transfer the grain onto delicate fabrics, yet coarse enough to grip the clothing a bit better than the shiny heat-resistant fabrics that you'll often find on an ironing board. Finally, instead of an elasticised edge, we opted rather for a perimeter cord that enables you to adjust each cover individually to each board.

Made in Australia with an obsessive attention to detail.

146cm Long x 60cm Wide

NEW Cotton Velvet Eye Mask Colours

NEW Cotton Velvet Eye Mask Colours

Here's something new and different.

Our Eye Mask maker found some nice cotton velvets in gold and midnight blue. So we asked her to whip us up a limited run of Eye Masks in those colours.

Be quick. Order HERE.


_________________

Our famous Cotton Velvet Eye Mask ... lovingly handmade here in Sydney since 1989. This is not just an in-flight thing. It seems that lots of people like to sleep with an eye mask on. Bedrooms get flooded in sunlight a bit too early for some. And shift workers need to be able to create night at any time. But, for many more, it's become a sleeping ritual to rank alongside: bedtime reading, hand cream and maybe a little nightcap. Life before the REMO Eye Mask was tough. Wearers had to make do with the nasty freebie versions that they give you on planes. They are generally made of plastic and nylon and, as a result, tend to rustle when you move and make your eyes sweat! They also let little bits of light in from underneath. We reverse engineered a series of eye masks from around the world and decided that what they all needed was a winged keel of padded black cotton! Many prototypes, meetings and samples later (we even had Tiny Tim test drive one of them), we settled on the current design; made by hand in Sydney from pure Belgian cotton velvet.

Canvas Sun Hats

Canvas Sun Hats

Summer is upon us and our Canvas Sun Hats are coming into their own again.

Order yours HERE.
__________________________

This was one of our very earliest developments under the REMO brand, and is unchanged in design since it was first introduced to our Darlinghurst General Store CustOMERs in 1991.

The REMO Canvas Sun Hat, although not a fashion item, has probably been our most copied product ... although the imitators never got it quite right with the width of the brim or quality of the make.

Made by hand here in Sydney by the same master milliner that used to make for us back in the Darlinghurst days! (See, we're not the only people doing the same thing after almost 30 years.)

100% cotton canvas. Rim-stitched for extra strength. Lined with cotton. Made to be scrunched up and shoved in a bag. Made to last. Just in time for summer.

One adult sizes fits most. Browse and order HERE.

NB: Thanks to the guys down at the Bondi Icebergs Pool for the impromptu early morning modelling session back in 2007. Dion's involvement is especially relevant. His REMO Canvas Sun Hat (worn continuously for 17 years) had finally fallen apart. We managed to get him a replacement hat just in time ... and then again in 2016.
