OUR STORY

Riser was founded in 2015 by Chrissy Virgiotis in Melbourne, Australia. With over fifteen years in the rag trade and mum to Leo and Roman, Chrissy knows the value of quality fabrics, refreshing designs and uncompromising style. Inspired by her playful imagination and her two early risers, Chrissy set about designing her collection of cot sheets and swaddles, T-shirts and onesies.

MELBOURNE DESIGNED COT SHEETS AND SWADDLES

Riser’s designs are brought to life by local Melbourne artists with a shared love of colour, fun and creativity. Moving away from traditional baby colours and designs, Riser’s swaddles and cot sheets feature lush green cactus, exotic palm trees, magical peacocks,  dreamy coconuts and Scandi-inspired monochrome designs, updating the nursery every time sheets are changed.

MELBOURNE MADE T-SHIRTS ONESIES AND PILLOWCASES

Made with the finest certified organic cotton that is luxuriously soft, Riser has expanded its range to include T-shirts, onesies and pillowcases that feature the label’s signature rope stitch slogans. Working closely with manufactures locally in Thornbury, Riser’s founder Chrissy oversees the production of each T-shirt and onesie ensuring the highest quality and craftsmanship so that garments keep their shape and colour wash after wash, wear after wear.   

All  around the globe, children are sleeping soundly and waking up wrapped in Riser
