The Ides of March

Posted by Remo Giuffre on

The Ides of March

Enough about Pi. 15 March is approaching in a few days, and here's a bit of information designed to make you just that little bit more knowledgable. After all, CustOMERs are smart.

The Ides of March was a day in the Roman calendar that corresponds to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts. In 44 BC, it became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar which made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history.

This coin, commemorating that assassination, was issued by Caesar's assassin Brutus in the autumn of 42 BC, with the abbreviation EID MAR (Eidibus Martiis – on the Ides of March) under a "cap of freedom" between two daggers.

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.
