The inspiration behind The Able Label
The Able Label was founded by Katie after her grandmother was diagnosed with Parkinson's and dressing became increasingly difficult for her. Our beautiful clothes have been inspired by Katie's grandmother and are specifically designed to make dressing easier, considering things like stiffness, slowness of movement and shakes.
The Able Label clothes have two key rules: no overhead dressing and no fiddly fastenings
Katie Ellis - Founder
My husband has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's and found it difficult to walk on the wooden floors in our house. Seeing your Alan socks, I bought a pair for him to try and to our delight he's far more confident now he has the grip given by the soles. I've just ordered 4 more pairs!
Finding The Able Label was amazing. To actually be able to wear comfortable, fashionable, clothing which is easy to get on and off, and saves us both a lot of time. It has definitely been a factor that has improved our quality of life having to live every day with Parkinson’s.
