For today’s Sunday Coffee I have invited the lovely Angela from Rube & Harri, a beautiful Australian children’s sleepwear brand. Often sleepwear receives a lot less attention than daytime clothing, even though many children spend at least half of their day in it! Angela makes up for it with a wonderful range that is a delight for the eye.

Find out about Angela’s personal favourites and the reason behind Rube & Harri at Hip little one.

What does your ideal Sunday look like?
My ideal Sunday would involve a leisurely breakfast (on the verandah of our house…weather permitting) including a large coffee and a breakfast burger fron Wendlands Deli/cafe just down the road. Following that, the rest of the day would entail either going on an outing with the kids to the park or similar, or lunch with family and/or friends.

Why did you start Rube & Harri?
I began Rube and Harri because I found it impossible to source classic style pyjamas for my daughters. I am not a fan of licenced prints and saw a gap in the market at the time. I decided to create my own line, designing everything from the fabric up.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Initially from my two daughters (and now from my son as well). I am also inspired by the seasons…think warm and cosy for winter, and fresh light for spring/summer.

What is your favouriteRube & Harri design from the current range?
There are so many I love, but if I were to pick just one for the girls it would be the Kate. I love the combination of the fresh white top with the gorgeous floral pant. For boys I love the Archer. It is bright and fresh and looks equally fantastic on my two year old son as it does on his eight year old cousin.

What can we expect of Rube & Harri in the near future?
I can’t give too much away, but my Spring/Summer range is inspired by the gorgeous Brighton beach huts. It will be bright, fun and fresh, while still maintaining the classic elements my customers come to expect.

Before I became a mum to my twins 3 years ago I was the store manager of a beautiful children’s store, I absolutely loved my job and still miss it all the time. Of course Christmas time was very busy for the store but although it was hard work it was so much fun. All these little people that needed clothes for Christmas and many grandparents coming in to buy the most gorgeous gifts. Year after year one of the top Christmas gifts (if not THE top gift) was a new pair of pyjama’s. If you are looking for some beautiful pyjama’s to put under the tree this year check out Rube & Harri.

Australian label Rube & Harri designs stunning children’s sleepwear for boys and girls aged 2 to 7. Owner and mother-of-three Angela has created a beautiful new spring/summer range combining unique prints with classic, traditional cuts and high quality materials. Angela knows we are all busy and don’t have time to go shopping, so her online store is always open and at the moment you don’t even have to pay for shipping (Australia only, offer ends Dec 15).

With warm summer weather on the horizon you will really appreciate the Rube & Harri fabric choice, the 100% cotton pyjama’s will keep your child cool and are lightweight and breathable. If you think there is nothing cuter than a little girl in nightie try adding a Rube & Harri nightie, how gorgeous is this Girls Crimson Spot Nightie ($44.95)? Each pyjama (nightie or set) comes in a transparant gift bag, perfect for the gift giving season.

For the boys there is choice from three different styles in classic blue and red tones, combining a plain top with printed shorts. Rube & Harri has been very careful to select timeless styles and prints that are suitable for all ages, you really can’t go wrong. Make sure you ‘like’ Rube & Harri on Facebook as every Friday in December you are in with a chance to win a pair of Rube & Harri pyjama’s.
