Remy & Roo Co. is a Norfolk, UK based lifestyle brand working on bringing you elegant farmhouse inspired home & lifestyle wares curated in the British countryside.
Being based in the beautiful greenery of East Anglia, we incorporate all them fibres into our products. Be it a literal interpretation or a pattern seemingly inspired by a place, season or feeling.
Our main hub of customers initially came from our personalised jute shoppers which went on sale June 2018. Attending local, small farmers markets and craft fairs we realised that there was a massive demand for stylish, reusable and eco-friendly shopper bags which were made that little bit more special, being adorned with a special name, place or saying of your own personal choice.
The soft leather handles and classic touches such as brass feet really made this bag a big hit with people that not only had a love and joy for the local countryside but on a ethical basis, gave people a stylish and 'personal' reason to ditch the plastic and invest in a classic style shopper which was not only aesthetically pleasing but aided in their carbon footprint reduction.
We are a small business with big ideas and constantly looking to source and create unique wares and accessories which you cannot find on the high street.
The company was set up by Gemma Blythin, a 2 year Art & Design student who followed on to complete a final major year specialising in the Textiles field back in 2005. Along the way, Gemma has experimented with different full time vocations within the industry and finally took the plunge back in 2018 to set up Remy & Roo Co.
Within 6 months of the business being live we were elated to win the Small Business Sunday award, hosted by the ex Dragons Den star and current retail tycoon, Theo Paphitis. We look forward to our yearly catch up the man himself in Birmingham for the annual meet and talk everything business.
Our business is constantly evolving and although we are classed as a 'small business' in the the grand scheme of things we have 'big ideas!'. We are constantly working on improving products and services to make our customers shopping experience as enjoyable as possible. We have recently integrated software so you can visualise your personalised shopper before even checking out! We also endeavour to work with couriers and delivery services who can meet the high expectations in regards to delivery turn around times. We have been thrilled to hear that on most occasions our wares arrive before products do from 'on the shelf' websites. That's because we are dedicated to high end products, affordable prices and quick turn around times.
