248-08-18-17 PATTI + RICKY Online Department Store for Individuals with Disabilities
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Shopping at Macy’s, Nordstrom, and other department stores can be both challenging and discouraging for some individuals with disabilities. Many individuals in wheelchairs for instance, struggle finding jackets, jeans, and more that work with their daily needs. This is where PATTI + RICKY comes in.
PATTI + RICKY is a new online shopping experience that offers stylish and functional designer products for people with all sorts of disabilities. The online catalogue offers products for women, men, and children. A few of their current products include:
- Adaptable clothing like pants, jackets, and tops
- Fidgets and stylish fidget jewelry
- Hearing Aid and Cochlear Implant Cuffs
- Braille accessories and clothing
- And much, much more.
What’s even cooler is that 10% of all PATTI + RICKY’s annual profits are donated to nonprofit organizations that support inclusion and provide access for individuals with disabilities.
