The wheelchair certainly is part of your life – don’t let it take over and reign your sense of clothing. No need to wear drab practical rags when there are these lovely jeans.

According to their personal measurements and special needs every customer gets a unique pair of jeans with perfect fit, 100% custom made and individually tailored.
