BootNaut Kids is the creation of a mother concerned for her son with food allergies and looking for a way to help navigate the challenges of everyday life. Unsatisfied with the range of options available, I decided to produce a sustainable T. Shirt that said it all. The Allergy Logo is on the back which helps ‘quietly shout’ for others to BE AWARE without the child feeling different. We created the design to be fun and cool to wear. My son always chose to put on these Allergy T. Shirts at social events, parties, restaurants and on holidays. This gave confidence for him to start managing responsibility and helped others to be more vigilant.
