A Workplace Made with Love | Mustard Tree

A Workplace Made with Love | Mustard Tree

“What would an organisation with inclusive work practices look like?”

For centuries, workplaces have been designed for able-bodied people. Because of long-standing physical and social barriers, organisations often fail to make adequate accommodations for people with special needs.

Regaining Confidence | Muthiah

Regaining Confidence | Muthiah

Social isolation is a complex issue with various causes and solutions. Muthiah had to wear a sarong instead of conventional pants because of a condition called elephantiasis.

Caring for the Caregiver | Shalom

Caring for the Caregiver | Shalom

As a person with muscular dystrophy, Shalom realised that his dressing process could be quite taxing for his caregiver. He came to us with a request for customised apparels – ones that would be easier for his caregiver to help him put on, plus, suitable to wear it for sleep and for a day out.
A Backward Solution | Milan

A Backward Solution | Milan

While most of our designs involve using zippers to improve accessibility, the goal of Milan’s jumpsuit was actually the opposite. The jumpsuit’s zipper was intentionally placed out of Milan’s reach so that his caregiver would be the only one with access.
