We LOVE Buffalo, NY and we want everyone to know! But shhh... let's keep it's awesomeness a secret!

To celebrate our Buffalo pride we've launched limited edition t-shirts with the phrase "Keep Buffalo a Secret". Our blue braille beadwork makes the phrase extra secret (unless you read braille!).

Grab a friend, two braille shirts and head over to the "Keep Buffalo a Secret" mural to show your Buffalove. Mural islocated outside Oxford Pennant at 731 Main Rd, Buffalo, NY.

Fun Fact: Alexa and Jake—the wife and husband team behind Aille Design—had their first date in Buffalo at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery! Bonding over Lloyd's Taco Factory, live music at Iron Works, and the city's countless murals, Alexa fell in love with Jake and Buffalo simultaneously. Thank you to the city of friendly neighbors for the warm welcome!

Aille Design has officially expanded operations from Toronto to Buffalo...GO BILLS!

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.

Sustainability

Products: Our high quality products are designed to endure a long lifespan and become a key part of your wardrobe. We also produce limited product quantities to help reduce waste.

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