The next episode of shark tank Season 13 will introduce new commercial offerings this Friday. One of them will be a company called No Limbits, a clothing line for amputees.
Founder Erica Cole launched her business last year after a successful Kickstarter campaign. The description of No Limbits on the brand’s Instagram profile reads:
“A adaptive clothing brand whose mission is to increase the comfort, confidence and independence of those who have difficulty dressing due to a disability.”
No Limbits jeans come with zippers to make it easy to wear for amputees, wheelchair users and people with “limited dexterity and sensory sensitivities”.
The idea for No Limbits was born out of frustration
According to No Limbits’ “About Us” page, Cole came up with the idea to create adaptive clothing out of frustration. The founder lost her leg in an accident and received a prosthetic leg, which made wearing stockings and jeans a painful job.
The pain and frustration gave her the solution to use her sewing skills and create decorative covers on her prosthetic leg. A few days later, Cole began making jeans with zippers that allowed his legs to slip in and out of the pants easily.
The University of Iowa chemistry degree holder was initially unsure about starting a business. To find out if it would work, she entered a pitch contest at Iowa JPEC IdeaStorm, where she won. This gave him the confidence to start his own business called No Limbits.
Its About Us page reads:
“Today, after winning multiple startup competitions, completing a successful Kickstarter campaign, and receiving funding from enthusiastic investors, Erica is thrilled to build No Limbits into a leader in adaptive clothing so no one has to. compromise between style and function, regardless of their unique life and body circumstances.
Where to buy the clothes
Interested buyers can purchase No Limbits products through the brand’s website. It offers men’s and women’s jeans for $70.
The women’s collection includes blue jeans, black pants and gray pants, while the men’s adaptive clothing consists of Dark Wash, Black and Light Wash. On its website, as part of a sensory collection, the company offers tank tops, joggers and t-shirts ranging in price from $30 to $45.
