I was inspired to create a line of age appropriate bibs for children by my disabled 10-year-old son Rex.
Rex was diagnosed with a debilitating genetic disorder - Mitochondrial Disease which has left him wheel chair bound & unable to feed himself or control his drooling.
Meal times could be extremely messy. Keeping Rex's chest dry & clothes clean became quite a challenge, not to mention his dignity.
I commenced by making Rex his own age appropriate & stylish t-shirt, neckerchief & collared shirt. I soon had Rex's therapists requesting them for their clients.
Bibulous bibs are fashionable, classic & practical . A great option for children, teenagers & adults who feel self conscious about wearing bibs.
Designed to keep the chest dry & protect clothes. The absorbent & quick drying backing conceals drool & is comfortable to wear. Whilst the practical design makes it easy for the carer or wearer to put on & take off. I've chosen premium cottons & linens for the outer in colours to compliment most clothes.
I am hoping that in my own small way I can help empower people who are differently-abled with confidence, independence & style.

Rex & I have been fortunate enough to work with The Cerebral Palsy Alliance where you can learn more about our story.
