Rolling Elephants wheelchair jeansJun 21 08:36
There have been a slough of wheelchair jeans manufacturers since adapted fashion became popular over 15 years ago, with USA Jeans being one of the most well-known manufacturers of adapted jeans; jeans especially made to fit the form of a seated human, rather than a standing one.
And Rolling Elephants is the latest wheelchair jeans manufacturer to hit the scene, offering a more rugged look that harkens to the site’s roots - rural Germany. The jeans were created because of a young woman named Mira, a wheelchair-user who wanted cool-looking jeans that were also comfortable. The site first began selling jeans only in Germany, but they have recently created an English-version of their site, so they can accept orders from the UK and other European countries.
The jeans offered by Rolling Elephants are perfect for outdoors people and ladies who don’t mind getting their hands dirty, but also don’t want to wear a shapeless pair of jeans that do nothing to flatter her figure. They sell handcrafted, organic, colored and stretch jeans. Their jeans are double-seamed to extend their longevity, have no back pockets, have longer zippers, as well as extra belt loops to assist wearers in pulling them on. The handcrafted jeans are pretty cool too. They provide a selection of artistic motifs to chose from, and they will hand-paint your motif onto your jeans.
Most of their jeans cost around $225 a pair, but considering the quality of each pair, these jeans are sure to last a lifetime. To inspect their garments further (and if you know German, be sure to check out their German disability lifestyle blog), visit Rolling Elephants
