Wash Instructions

Turn your sweater inside out before washing. Machine wash with cold water. Hang to dry. Do not put sweater in dryer.

When wrinkled, it is okay to use a steamer. Do not use an iron on or near the braille beadwork. Like most sweaters, this fabric is likely to attract lint and hair. It is best practice to use a lint roller.

Design Process

The intricate braille beadwork is applied by hand with great care and precision. Our garments are created in a process called co-design where we work alongside a diverse team of sighted and non-sighted individuals consisting of braille readers, fashion stylists, and disability advocates. Each item is made in North America and is designed to initiate conversation about disability inclusion.

Accessible Packaging

Accessible packaging includes a large print or braille card describing visually elements of the product and how to wash it. We use a braille slate and stylus to add all of the braille by hand. An embossed version of the Aille Design logo is also on the card.

Sustainability

Packaging: Our simulated braille tissue paper and branded stickers are eco-friendly and can be composted or recycled after use.
