The idea for Well Cool came about after one of our son's needed prolonged hospital care when he was younger. He had great treatment but due to some of the medication he was on, he gained weight and his regular pyjamas became tight. Sometimes he got sick and his pyjamas needed changing. At this time, he had IVs (a drip with a needle going into his arm) and I had to wait for the already busy specialist nurses to come and disconnect the IV from the pump and thread it through his tight pyjama sleeve or disconnect. He had to remove his top leaving him exposed and embarrassed. He also hated the Hospital Gowns as they posed the same problems as his own pyjamas.
I returned to my idea and formed Well Cool Clothing (at the time both my sons used to use the term “that’s well cool” constantly). The PJs have been trialled & these are now the finished designs and with all new products there have been many alterations and design changes along the way.
As we started as a children's brand, we wanted something bright and fun to make children and parents smile. It was drawn free hand and our boys picked it from a choice of others. We have often been advised to change our logo for a more corporate image, however for the time being, we have decided to keep it, as after all, it's central to our story.
