It was the death of Freddie Gray that started Assistees. He was on the spectrum. And when police stopped him for questioning, they mistook his tendencies and used violent maneuvers that killed him.
When I learned about the incident, I started designing t-shirts that prevented misunderstandings.
T-shirts that empowered people. T-shirts that empowered disabilities. T-shirts that worked toward a positive and inclusive environment for people like Freddie.
Or simply - tees that assist.
We want to prove disabilities only mean different abilities. So we aim to craft comfortable, well-made clothes for anyone considered disabled.
The Dream Junction - a multi-location operation that specializes in digital printing - makes all of our shirts with 100% soft cotton, light fabric, and tear-away labels. We use an Industrial DTG printer equipped with five Ricoh Generation print heads to ensure an optimum look for every customer.
Our ethos? Providing shirts that look and fit well to uplift - and assist.
