All About: Oi Oi
Here at Little Treehouse Lane, we love stocking, supporting and championing Australian small businesses.
Today we want to introduce you to one of our favourite brands that we have in store, OiOi.
OiOi The Brand
OiOi have a fabulous range of nappy bags, change mats and stroller organisers that are some of our best sellers.
The story of how OiOi came to be is again a mum creating a product she wanted but couldn't find!
OiOi was started 24 years ago by Lisa Bennetts. She wanted a nappy bag that wasn't daggy and was big enough to hold everything. Lisa couldn't find one on the market, so she designed her own!
Lisa used cardboard cutouts to help her create the most intuitive layout, sourced a beautiful & durable microfibre fabric and designed useful matching accessories to include in the bag.
They were a hit and the rest is history!
OiOi is still an Aussie family owned and operated business with daughter Isabella (pictured) leading the team.
Fun Fact : the name OiOi was what Isabelle's mum used to say to her to get her attention as a baby!! Cute, right?
About OiOi Products
All of the OiOi products are incredibly high quality and durable and are made safely and ethically.
Products go through rigorous testing and quality control checks to ensure you get many years of wear from them. Each bag has a water-resistant finish on the lining inside the bag as well as the outer materials.
One of the reasons they are so popular with our customers is that they are gender neutral so the husbands are happy to wear them as well!
