Gertrude and the King is the brain child of mother and daughter team, Sandra and Kate.
The story began when Sandra was inspired by her daughters shopping woes for their children. Sandra learnt there was a need for stylish, classic and of course practical designs when it came to accessories for babies and toddlers, with priority being placed on natural fibres where possible.
We now bring parents a curated collection of high quality and practical baby and toddler soft sole shoes, luxe bibs and headbands. Classic and timeless but with a modern twist.
Our baby and toddler shoes are made from a breathable cotton canvas, they feature a feather light textured rubber sole that is durable and super flexible – they’re also totally washable! Recommended by paediatricians & podiatrists up until the age of 2 or until walking is fully established, soft soled shoes mimic bare feet and allow babies to improve their balance as well as strengthen all those tiny muscles and toes.
Our shoes are well made and super comfortable, allowing the little people who are wearing them to be a real kid, we’re proud to say they will handle whatever your little one throws at them! Did we mention they’re machine washable?!
Our beautiful luxe bibs look amazing whilst being practical, 3 layers means they’re ultra absorbent and multiple snap buttons or tie back closures means they can be worn from new born through to toddler years. All of our luxe bibs are designed and made by us with the finest craftsmanship. Who said bibs have to be boring?
