Exclusively inclusive

Since February 2018, Kintsugi has been creating beautiful, useful, accessible apparel with disabled customers in mind. Our core collection features wardrobe must-haves, from skirts and tops to trousers and outerwear. We also have a mini range of t-shirts, each with a disabled pinup girl front and centre. 

Kintsugi is about better representation of diverse body types that fall outside the narrow boundaries set by mainstream fashion and media, particularly plus-size and disabled bodies.

Our customers are headstrong, unapologetic and refuse to take up less space in a society that tries to make them feel invisible. Our products are designed to reflect this attitude and ensure our customers are seen.
