Take the Drama Out of Dressing with Willow Bug

Stylish Adaptive Clothing for Children with Special Needs

Willow Bug is a new and unique online destination offering stylish adaptive clothing for children with special needs.

Designed and made in the UK, the Willow Bug collection is created with love, care and attention to guarantee unrivalled quality, durability and functionality.  Featuring everyday outerwear essentials for four year olds to teens from waterproof ponchos to wheelchair snugs, back-fastening jackets to wheelchair capes, the Willow Bug range offers function and form without compromising on style.

Created with comfort in mind, the styles are designed to be worn while sitting and are cut shorter at the back to ensure there’s no extra material to tuck away.  All of the products are seam sealed and fully waterproof and most are fleece lined for extra warmth.

Willow Bug was established towards the end of 2016 by sister and brother team, Jess Chippendale and Dom Murray.  Frustrated by the style limitations of available specialist clothing for her wheelchair-using daughter, Jess was presented with an opportunity when adaptive clothing company Able2wear were selling off their childrenswear range. Following an extensive rebrand, new product lines and an injection of energy, colour and fun, Willow Bug was launched to much acclaim.

“My daughter Willow is like any other six-year-old; she’s a style conscious kid who likes to look good.  However, getting Willow dressed is a daily challenge and it’s hard to find clothing that can accommodate her disability and her wheelchair,” says Jess. “We are on a mission to provide fun but functional clothing that is easy to put on in fantastic styles that kids are going to want to wear.”
