What makes the Ribcap blanket different from other products on the market?
Nico De Wilde: Ribcap utilizes the finest quality materials to ensure maximum comfort and durability. The weighted duvet contains chambers that hold micro glass beads that are responsible for the even distribution of weight to mimic a comforting embrace. It also incorporates a microfiber and cotton filling within its construction, as well as a sumptuously soft cotton outer layer that is breathable, yet soft and cozy. Crafted in Europe utilizing premium quality materials, our weighted blankets are soft, comfortable, and durable – permitting everyday use and suitable for machine wash.
How important it is to create an inclusive community?
Nico De Wilde: Inclusivity is a hot topic, and it's no wonder. Inclusion is a social issue that needs our attention. We all have access to the same tools and opportunities, but not everyone has the opportunity to enjoy them.
The fashion industry has been criticized for not being inclusive enough of people with disabilities. However, there are many companies who are trying to change that. One example of an inclusive fashion brand is Ribcap, which offers fashionable products for people with different conditions or disabilities.
It’s important to be able to participate in society without the stigma and barriers. We strive towards a community of people that can live their life to the fullest without any barriers.
Are there more Ribcap products like this planned in the near future?
Nico De Wilde: Yes, we're hard working on different products where we incorporate our mission and product knowledge. The overall goal is to create a beautiful independence for people with different special needs.
