Even if you don’t have kids, strolling through the children’s clothing section in Target can be super fun (the tiny clothes! so adorable!). Now, Cat & Jack, one of Target’s lines for children’s clothing, is giving us one more reason to state awwwww: they recently released new apparel options that were specifically designed for kids with disabilities in your mind.
Cat & Jack first released their Design for those?collection back in August. All the items are sensory-friendly, meaning they’re perfect for children who may have trouble processing certain sensations, for example?scratchy tags or graphic tees with 3D decals. “The pieces include heat-transferred labels instead of tags, flat seams, and one-dimensional graphic tees, all designed to minimize discomfort when in contact with the skin,” Target explained in a pr release?at that time.
The newest items in the Design for those line include?a jacket with zip-off sleeves, and leggings and bodysuits which make changing diapers easier. What’s more, all of the items are produced from soft cotton material that will not irritate the skin.?”As a technical designer, I’m always taking a look at ways to develop items that are super functional and can help many different types of people,” Mari Anderson, principal technical designer of youngsters?apparel at Target, said in a recent press release.
