Able2Wear specialises in the design and manufacture of clothes for wheelchair users, or for anyone who has problems in finding essential clothing that fits properly. After extensive research - and with the kind co-operation of wheelchair users, carers and professionals - we have built up a unique collection of garments that ranges from waterproofs to trousers, offering clothes for every occasion. But we are not a fashion company - we simply offer properly designed basics such as trousers, a few skirts and accessories all designed to solve clothing problems - and we encourage our customers to pair them with fashion garments from their favourite store.
Throughout design, manufacture and administration the staff at Able2Wear work as a closely-knit team. Several wheelchair users have played an important role in our team over the years, testing garments and acting as models at our photography sessions, and although the photographers were anxious about the battered state of many of their wheelchairs we knew you would be reassured by the chipped paint and frayed cushion covers!
Our designers' innovative ideas and their expertise in the design of waterproofs for wheelchair users is unequalled. Testament to their abilities is the string of prestigious awards won by them over the last few years, including:
- ECMOD AWARD for BUSINESS EXCELLENCE
- British Clothing Industry Award
- Scottish Design Award
- Queen Elizabeth Foundation Award
- British Healthcare Industry Award
- Millenium Product Status
- Glasgow Business Award
Our design team has an on-going programme of new product development, and we look forward to adding to our range regularly, so do keep visiting us to see our latest garments.
