Only one of these turtlenecks exist!! Aille Design is excited to continue offering our new upcycled one-of-a-kind braille clothing collection.

This new design transforms the classic turtleneck into your new favorite piece to wear!! There is no seam connecting the shirt and the collar, making it an easy to wear top without being too restrictive. The white braille beadwork along the front of the design adds instant sophistication and modern elegance. The location of the white braille beadwork from the neckline to the shirt hem will help further elongate your body. Not only does this top look great, the stretchy dress fabric makes it comfortable to wear all day long.  

White braille beadwork reads:

Blindness does not have a certain "look" or "feel". Not one single person looks the same. We are all people first. Disabilities do not define us. We define ourselves.

Materials

Legible braille created with premium crystal pearls. Fabric consists of 94% viscose and 6% spandex. The beads are smooth to the touch and easy to read.

Turn your shirt inside out before washing. Machine wash with cold water. Hang to dry. For best results, do not put shirt in dryer.

When wrinkled, it is okay to use a steamer. Do not use an iron on or near the braille beadwork.

5% Donation

5% of t-shirt profits are donated to Visually Impaired Advancement (VIA), who we are honored to have a long-term partnership with.

VIA's goal is to help blind and visually impaired individuals achieve their highest level of independance. They are the largest and premier service provider to Western New York's visually impaired community.

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 and braille card describing 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.

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