Hello everyone, My name is Renea, and I'm the Director of ArchNOllie. Archer is my Son and Olive is my daughter. Jointly their names create ArchNOllie.
Our business was founded organically, when I started making pieces for my children. Strangers in the street were asking "where did you get that from'? 'Can you make me one'? I was on maternity leave from my previous role, and although sleep deprived (my babies are only 14mths apart) I still craved a creative outlet! I have always said I should never have any 'down' time as my brain goes into a creative/business overdrive. So the birth of my third baby ArchNOllie arrived.
Our business is located in rural NSW. In 2019 we had drought, fire and floods only to enter 2020 the year of COVD-19. We backed our label and ordered the most stock we have ever ordered from our manufacturers, even with all of this happening globally we wanted to make sure our customers and stockists both domestically and internationally had a brand they could rely on, a brand which was able to supply goods when everyone else were closing, delayed or withdrew a collection.
ArchNOllie is ALWAYS about unique, fun and vibrant pieces. I make and design what I would like my children to wear, it's as simple as that! This may change in the future as they get older but I really love the feeling of pride when I see our pieces on the beach, in weddings and knowing people shopped our head wear, swimwear and accessories.
With the brand continually growing we hope you will always find that special something you are searching for. Always stylish, always different, whatever you choose you can be content knowing that ArchNOllie doesn’t follow trends. We always design from the heart, and hope you can find something that will bring some joy to yours.
