Adaptive clothing brings choice to people with disabilities
Wrap it up
Soumita Basu in a sari designed by her
Soumita Basu, who has psoriatic arthritis, founded her label Zyenika a year ago to offer solutions for people who have various kinds of disabilities. “I started doing research and I had my own body to understand what I would have to do,” says Soumita, who is based in Kolkata. Soumita is a wheel chair user and before she launched her label, she spoke to a number of designers to get a few designs together. Her label has a wrap-up sari, which can be worn lying down and a slip on sari, which can be worn with little effort. She is working on a range of kurtas for men too, without buttons. Soumita says she is also working on adaptive inner wear for women and men.
