About

A family affair...

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 that there was a need for stylish, classic and of course practical designs when it came to shoes and bibs for babies and toddlers, with priority being placed on natural fibres where possible.

It seemed most of the bibs on the market were far too big for young babies, or not absorbent enough to do actually do anything. Soft sole shoes were hard to find, and those that were around were covered in prints and patterns and a bit too difficult to style...

Nothing really fit the brief: timeless designs that did the job well whilst looking beautiful. Simple really!

After retiring from her corporate career, Sandra took her daughters feedback on board and started creating. You can guess what happened next. . .

The collection is now a combination of handmade and ethically manufactured. After a while Sandra needed some help, sewing GK shoes was keeping her up waaaay past her bedtime! Her daughter Kate now looks after the business side of things, leaving Sandra to work her magic and continually create sweet new things for your favourite little people!

Thanks for joining us on this journey!
Sandra and Kate

Refunds and Exchanges

Customer satisfaction is extremely important to us. If for any reason you are not totally satisfied with your purchase please contact us. If it is agreed for an item to be returned it must be returned in it's original condition within 14 days of purchase. Refunds will not be given on shipping costs
Payment
Payments are accepted through Paypal.

We welcome custom made orders but in order to cater to everyone's likes we would indeed require a huge amount of stock on hand. So for custom made orders we may have to purchase individual fabric not always on hand so ask for a 50% deposit before starting on your order. Do hope you understand.
Shipping
Each piece is securely wrapped in paper then popped into a waterproof postal sachet.
Shipping times and handling costs are shown in each listing. For items in stock, not custom made, they are shipped within 5 business days of payment verification unless otherwise noted in the listing.
If specific colours of fabric need to be ordered for bespoke orders it may occasionally slow the process down just a bit. We will keep you well informed and send photos of the progress we are up to at numerous stages.

For Australian buyers we send via Australia Post, shipping cost includes tracking number. For international buyers we send regular air mail and you are responsible for any additional fees imposed by your destination country (customs fees, taxes, etc.). Please be aware that with international shipping it generally takes at least 10 -14 business days (sometimes a bit more) for items to reach their destinations. Near holidays it can take longer. If you would like a tracking number it is an additional $6 fee and we are happy to provide this service.

If you have any questions about shipping please contact us through the "contact" link or email us directly at wrinklesandrolls [!at] gmail.com
