RAPH&REMY produces the most gorgeous baby products that give babies comfort, while providing parents with peace of mind.
“I am all about creating useful, elegant and high-quality products that make parents’ lives easier, and offer the most joy and comfort to babies,” says Tiffany Okumu, owner and creator of RAPH&REMY. She’s also The Finder’s Entrepreneur of the Year 2020.
RAPH&REMY uses sustainable materials for every single one of its products. “All our apparel and textiles are made with luxuriously silky-soft bamboo,” says Tiffany, herself a mum of two boys – Raphael, 3, and Remy, 1 – for whom the brand is named. The perks of using bamboo are twofold, explains Tiffany: It is a sustainable and renewable resource, and the “best for babies’ comfort” in Singapore’s tropical climate. The products range from a cosy Organic Bamboo Cloud Cooling Blanket to adorable Bamboo Baby Booties, Duckling Rattles and Bubble Gummy Teethers as well as a chic Changing Mat Clutch and gift sets that you can customise yourself.
All RAPH&REMY products are designed by Tiffany, with the majority of them starting with “just a pencil, a blank piece of paper and an open mind”. This is important to its creator because she says, “I never wanted RAPH&REMY to be another company that buys the same standard wholesale stock available to everyone else, and then just puts our logo on it.” Customers can even add an extra personal touch to their purchases with made-to-order embroidery. Choose from four different thread colours, and get that special little someone’s initials stitched onto a darling Premium Bow Clip or have his or her name scripted onto a plush Organic Bamboo Baby Towel & Mitt. The personalisation service is particularly popular – with a 600-percent increase in orders since the embroidery service was first offered in April 2020.
“For us product design doesn’t stop with the product, it also extends to the packaging,” says Tiffany, who notes – for each and every item sold – the wrapping is just as beautiful as what’s inside. Featuring a crisp white gift box and a ribbon bow in RAPH&REMY’s signature grey, the deliveries are bound to make their recipients delighted. Even better? Your items will be delivered within three working days, and you can enjoy free delivery on orders above $80. Plus, the RAPH&REMY experience extends beyond its online store, as it has multiple stockists around town. It’s newest locations include Motherswork at Great World and Tanglin Mall.
