Our Story

In a world so obsessed with maintaining the status quo, often being a little different is shunned. We’re shamed if we don’t fit into the pre-packaged box laid out by society and made to feel like there’s something wrong with us. This couldn’t be further from the truth than for autistic people. A famous study found that over the period of just one month at least 36% of autistic children experienced bullying. It’s clear something needs to change.

Our Story

The problem lies in lack of acceptance for this that is different from the norm. Which is why we aim to bring their unique stories to the forefront. To show the world that it’s okay to be different and there’s nothing wrong with this. We offer a range of autism-infused clothing, gifts and merchandise to help people wear this uniqueness with pride. The hope is to normalize autism and shift the narrative from a negative condition into something we embrace as an authentic part of somebody's being.

Our Story

We believe that everyone is born different. It doesn't mean we are broken. Quite the contrary. It’s our differences that make us special and unique. Which is why we aim to champion these differences in the autistic community and change the perception of them to increase acceptance. When you wear something from our store you are quite literally playing a part in a wider mission to end the needless suffering of autsitc people worldwide. It’s a simple gesture, but together we can do this!

Our Mission

Our aim is to bring autistic people to the forefront of culture. To champion their differences and showcase what makes them beautiful. For too long they have been alienated because they don’t fit in. Our mission is to change this and help them become accepted by wider society through normalization and bold self-acceptance. We believe that it’s our differences that make us unique and so have made it our goal to empower people to be different. To wear their weirdness with pride and never be afraid to be themselves.
