Disabled and chronically sick people don't just have needs, we have wants too. And beyond that, we want (and deserve) nice things! Generally products aren't designed with that in mind, but they here.
I currently have a range of t-shirts with most available in unisex sizes XS-4XL, art prints available in A5, A4 and A3 sizes, and a range of plastic-free paper-based stickers.
This collection is about bringing you nice products, yes, but it's also bringing you products that can spark conversations. You don't have to have a certain condition to buy from this shop, in fact you don't have to have any condition. Many of the pieces incorporate valuable reminders for everyone.
Ever feel burnt out? Ever need a reminder to be gentle with yourself? We all do sometimes. Whether you'd like to brighten up your wardrobe or your home, this shop is here to help.

WHAT I'M STILL WORKING ON:
I want to be as transparent as possible with you about this range and the steps I'm taking to improve things. I understand that the current t-shirt size range is not inclusive enough, and an extension of the current range is actively in development.
The webshop isn't currently accessible for those of you that use screen readers, for which I'm very sorry. This is something I've brought up with my fulfilment company. I sent over detailed feedback regarding accessibility features needed for Blind and low-vision folk, as well as for those that navigate around a webpage using the keyboard instead of the mouse. This feedback was gratefully and respectfully received and sent straight to the web development team.
I'm committed to ensuring that This Thing is a space for everyone, and will continue to use my privileges to speak up on issues that need improvement. I will of course keep you all in the loop with any changes that are made. I really appreciate your understanding and your support.
The webshop is free from gendered language, but it's worth noting that the fit of the tshirts is often referred to as a "mens" style meaning it's a more straight fit. If it helps I'm 5"7 and a UK 10/12. I wear a size Medium for a regular fit, and a Large for a more oversized feel. Ryan is 6"4 and a UK Large/XL. He wears a Medium or a Large for a tighter fit, but says an XL would be his preferred choice and more "true to his regular size".
