An idea that grew into love!
Truth is a wonderful thing…. So I’d like to say my first thought about the first Turkish towel I saw was “and how is this going to dry you?”. I did, however, like the story I read about it, I liked what people said about Turkish towels online worldwide, and I was convinced Australia needs sun glasses, sun screen, thongs but most of all Turkish towels! I (Dana) called Annie (partner in crime) and told her that we are going to sell Turkish towels and that every household in Australia is going to have one, two or three! Annie said: “OK”. That was July 2014. By November 2014 we had found the most amazing and wonderful manufacturer in Turkey, had imported 15,000 towels, had secured 2 shopping centre sites in Perth, employed 10 lovely team members and armed with enormous enthusiasm to show everyone what they had been missing out on. Our customers absolutely loved them, without even knowing what they were and 10 weeks later we sold out! We knew we had to share the love with more people not just in Perth but around Australia. So, we did.
Today we might have grown a little, but what we are very proud of that SAMMIMIS is 100% Australian owned, now 100% online (we said good bye to pop ups after 2019 summer season) and many corporate companies who see the value in gifting a high quality and versatile product to their team members, delegates, students and customers.
In a nutshell we are personable, down to earth, have a positive attitude, believe in healthy body/healthy mind and live by our values. We speak the truth – do we have to say more? We love, love and love a good laugh especially about ourselves. We make mistakes! Heaps of them. We surround ourselves with people that care, believe anything is possible, are genuine, positive and like to improve themselves as a person – that includes our customers, team members, suppliers, service providers (banks and insurances included), family and friends. We like growth – personal and business. We are by far not perfect and happy to admit if we are wrong.
