About Joe Bootkidz
Joe was designed in 2005 by Karen Henry and featured in the London Design Festival 2006 in partnership with Gap Kids
as part of a retail window display on Regent Street in London.
A number of Joe coat stands were made for this event and since 2006 these mannequins have been loaned out to a number of fashion shows and design exhibitions for use as exhibition pieces for use as fashion mannequins for children's clothing.
Hire or Buy
Joe is available for purchase or hiring as a window display or retail mannequin from Bootkidz Ltd, for payment options see below. Joe is available in a variety of colours including green, purple, yellow, red, orange. Joe can be custom made to order.
Materials used in manufacture
Joe is made using high-strength steel rod, bent using an industrial machining process.
It is very difficult to bend this steel making it ideal for wire-frame mannequins.
The paint is electro-painted onto the steel for a glossy thick paint quality-finish.
Joe's shoes are made with cast cement using a Wellington boot mould, and fixed to an MDF base using concrete bolts.
