About feroxetferus

Combatting the pink/blue aisles and gender stereotyping one item at a time.

ferōx et ferus translates from Latin as wild and untamed, but the words can also translate as ‘bold, headstrong, fierce, fearless, spirited and courageous.’ This brand is for those kids.

This shop came about from the growing despair I felt whenever I had to buy my own kids new clothes. I have two children, a boy and a girl, neither of which really conform to the traditional blue and pink aisle. My daughter’s favourite colour is green, so she has been wearing clothing from the ‘boys section’ for as long as she’s been able to talk. And my son spends so much time playing with Lego and cars on the floor that he prefers wearing comfy leggings to constrictive jeans.

I started off buying them clothes from Scandinavia, then I decided to learn to sew them myself. If we were out and about and people complimented their clothes or asked where we’d got them from I would always just answer ‘Thanks, I made them!’ But then I realised maybe it would be a good thing to offer others an alternative to the pink and blue aisle too. So I decided to change my answer from ‘Thanks, I made them’ to ‘Thanks, I made them, would you like some too?’

And so if you or your kids are fed up of the limitations of traditional children’s clothing and want an alternative, where the fabrics apply to both genders, can be comfy, bright and bold, and more importantly, where kids can just be kids, then to you I say ‘I made them, would you like some too?’

Frequently asked questions
RUSH ORDERS

As most of the items in my shop are made to order I ask you to please allow up to 2 weeks for your order to be made and posted. I do always strive to get your order shipped as quickly as possible but if you do need something for a particular date or in a hurry please let me know and I will try my very best to make it happen.

READY TO SHIP ITEMS

There may sometimes be a few items in the shop that are ready to ship. These are items that I have made already and therefore I are not able to adapt or customise them in any way. I aim to have these in the post 1-2 days after you place your order.

CUSTOM ORDERS

If you have any particular customisation or personalisation requests then please send me a message and we can discuss making your perfect item. If it is a case of adapting sizing/shape then these items will still fall within my 1-2 week turnaround time. However if you would like a particular fabric design or colour that I do not have in stock then I am more than happy to order it in but then please be aware that this will add to the time it will take me to make and ship your order.

SHIPPING UPGRADES

All orders now come with free UK shipping! These orders will be sent standard 2nd class and should arrive within 2-3 working days. If you need your order in a hurry there is a shipping upgrade available when you checkout to upgrade to 1st class signed for which aims to deliver the next working day.

International shipping varies between Europe and the rest of the world. I will send all orders as standard international class which are untracked. International shipping upgrades are also available to upgrade to tracked and signed for.

LOST PARCELS

Please be aware that I am unable to refund for missing parcels until after the statutory claim period for royal mail has passed. These are as follows:

UK - 10 working days after delivery estimate
Europe - 20 working days after delivery estimate
Rest of the World - 25 working days after delivery estimate

If you think your order is missing please contact me and we can discuss any further action.
