Why is accessible apparel so difficult to find? There is very little accessible apparel available, and too often what’s out there is not fashionable or well made… until now.

JUNIPERunltd is designing the future, one that includes everyone. They are doing this by creating a content hub, marketplace and community that uplifts everyone’s voices. At the heart of JUNIPERunltd is the marketplace for apparel and accessories that are both fashionable and accessible.

The inclusive products and growing marketplace of 17 brands featured on their website highlight style and function. JUNIPERunltd is changing the conversation when it comes to inclusive design and living.

JUNIPERunltd’s roots began with the innovative brand of MagnaReady. Founded by Maura Horton whose football coach husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at an early age, MagnaReady is a collection of men’s, women’s, and kids apparel and accessories designed to make life and dressing easier and stylish. For example, the fleece ‘Dillon’ jacket utilizes MagnaReady® patented adaptive technology – magnetized closures at the front placket combined with a classic fit for Stress-Free dressing. It features a knitted fleece fabric offering a luxurious soft hand-feel that will become a favorite part of your wardrobe.
