From the Lab to the Crag: Universal Design with Open Style Lab and Paradox Sports

clairewsmiley 4 years ago

Collaboration between diverse groups can lead to amazing results. Mix together a fabric innovator, an adaptive climbing non-profit, and an educational program focused on accessible clothing, and the sum will be greater than the parts.

Polartec filmed a short documentary to tell this story of collaboration. Featuring non-profit partners Open Style Lab, an educational and research program that increases awareness about the need for accessible clothing, and Paradox Sports, an organization that enriches lives through adaptive climbing opportunities, two OSL participants are able to try climbing for the first time in clothes designed specifically for their needs.

At Polartec, we solve problems with the science of fabric. By collaborating with non-profits like Paradox Sports and Open Style Lab, we can solve much more together.

For more information regarding Open Style Lab, please visit their website or contact [email protected]lelab.org.

To support Paradox Sports, please tell your local climbing gym about Paradox Sports and donate.
