A while ago, we shared the story of the brand No Limbits and how Erica Cole is raising awareness of the need for inclusive and adaptive clothing. But how does adaptive clothing pair with the same old wheelchair designs? That’s where Izzy Wheels comes in!
Irish sisters Izzy and Ailbhe (pronounced Alva) Keane are the masterminds behind this innovative brand of fun and colorful wheelchair covers. Since launching in 2016, the brand has partnered with powerhouses like Disney, Marvel, Barbie, and others.
Izzy has spina bifida and knows that wheelchairs can be a source of awkwardness in conversation. ” Having stylish wheels on your chair that match your outfit or show off your interests immediately addresses the chair and opens conversation.” Ailbhe also understands the need to “let users celebrate their individuality by personalizing their source of independence.”
We are inspired to see a new generation bridging the gap between adaptability and fashion! You can check out more Izzy Wheels designs here. We can’t wait to see what these two do next!
