Queenie,Godfrey and Company was established in January 2015 to provide high quality adapted clothing for the additional needs community.
The Company’s philosophy is to Adapt and Overcome the challenges of daily life head on and change attitudes towards disability and additional needs one lovely garment at a time. These products are unique to Queenie, Godfrey and Company and are designed and manufactured in the UK.
Queenie, Godfrey and Company works very closely with the charity Cure Rett who support the Rett Syndrome community and research into this devastating neurological disorder. The families involved with Cure Rett have helped develop and test the current range. Issues that have been addressed within the garments relate to wheelchair usage, back brace wearing, leg splints, incontinence and specifically those individuals fitted with gastrostomy feeding tubes.
Our first range includes the Dixie organic denim pinafore dress. This dress is a simple A-line shape, that fits neatly over the head and has poppers down each side to help with ease of dressing. The decorative fold at the front neatly conceals a gastrostomy feeding tube access point. It fastens at the front with a cute little wooden button. The fastening is at the front so there are no pressure points at the back of the neck. We have fully lined the dress, so that there are no uncomfortable seams that may cause sore points. And, of course, it is made of super soft organic cotton so that there is no danger from chemical irritation.
This first range also includes the Holly organic cotton t-shirt. Made from super soft organic cotton jersey, this t-shirt features a loose fit, kimono style sleeve which enables the carer to put their own hand up the sleeve, take hold of the child’s arm and gently draw it down. It is then secured at the cuff with pretty ties. Again it is a simple A-line shape and, like the Dixie dress, the fold at the front of the t-shirt hides a gastrostomy feeding tube access point.
To keep things all clean and tidy, this range also features the Emlyn painting smock. This long sleeved cover-up has a bamboo lined front to help absorb any spills. It is a loose fit and is fastened at the back of the neck with a wooden button. We love a bit of quirkiness and this is the garment to provide it.
As a young Company we are always developing new ideas and products. The latest addition to our family is the Olive weighted lap pad and blanket. The lap pad measures 50cm by 70cm and weighs between 3-4lbs. The weighted blanket is 100cm by 150cm and weighs between 7-8lbs. Each product has scope to be made heavier if desired. They are made of funky cotton fabric and are backed with a very snuggly flannel. The weight is provided by poly-pellets, which makes the product fully washable. Please see our website for further details of all our products.
