No Limbits Designs Accessible, Adaptive Clothing #WearableWednesday
No Limbits was started by Erica Cole and currently provides wheelchair, unlimbited and sensory friendly clothing. Fast Company spoke to Erica Cole back in June:
Fast Company: Tell me about your decision to become a founder.
Erica Cole: I graduated with my degree in chemistry, the year after my accident, and had this as an alterations business on the side. I had a really nice job offer from Los Alamos National Lab. And then in the summer of 2020, there was a hiring freeze at Los Alamos National Lab because of the pandemic. It gave me some time to figure out where this was going. We launched a Kickstarter and were fully funded in 24 hours. Then a producer from Shark Tank reached out to us, and it’s grown from there. I never really intended to be a founder, but I just needed to see how far this could go. There really aren’t that many options in this space.
