Make a statement, literally! This t-shirt will turn heads and start conversation.

Our classic white t-shirt is now available with black braille beadwork that reads “diversity includes disability”. The high contrast between white fabric and black beads makes the braille easily identifiable. You’re sure to have people ask you “is that braille?” or “what does it say?”. Keep the conversation going! Make accessibility an expectation, not an exception.

Made from premium materials, the fabric is ultra-soft and comfortable to wear. The braille adds subtle texture and sophistication while showcasing your diversity and inclusion values. The beadwork is added by hand with great precision for superior braille legibility. By buying a braille t-shirt, you’re supporting the empowerment of blind and visually impaired individuals and helping to increase diverse representation in fashion.

      Materials

      Legible braille created with premium crystal pearls. Fabric consists of 50% polyester, 25% cotton, and 25% rayon. It's a very soft material, light weight, and sensory friendly. The beads are smooth to the touch and easy to read.

      Wash Instructions

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

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

      5% Donation

      5% of t-shirt profits are donated to the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), who we are honoured to have a long-term partnership with.

      AFB is the internationally recognized blindness organization that Helen Keller worked with for over 40 years.

      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.

      Beautiful Fashionable & Inclusive

      I've always enjoyed having a white tee in my wardrobe. What makes this one so special is the braille bling. The beautiful Swarovski crystals with the "Diversity Includes Disability" message is meaningful, inclusive and a statement piece designed to generate conversation around adaptive fashion. Love it!
