Autism aware clothing label Born Anxious have this week launched the new official Harvey Price clothing range to its collection of innovative and fashionable sensory wear.
he clothing benefits from not only being soft and organic but also the additional comfort of having the inside labels removed.
Kellie Barker, owner of Born Anxious said, “I was first introduced to Katie and Harvey through our ambassador Anna Kennedy OBE, an amazing lady who has dedicated her life promoting inclusion and equality of children and adults with Autism Spectrum. A friendship grew and we decided to design a collection of clothing that is a celebration of all things Autism, to support each other and to recognise Harvey’s love of frogs!”
The range includes basketball vests and shorts, t-shirts, jogging trousers, hoodies, and recycled messenger bags.
All products are printed with Harvey’s frog logo on the front and can be adapted to include the Born Anxious messages on the back of the garments, for example, “I DON’T LIKE LOUD NOISE, AUTISM ARMY, BEE KIND, I’M ANXIOUS, I HAVE AUTISM.
The profits from the Harvey range will be divided equally between Harvey’s personal trust fund, the Anna Kennedy Online charity, and Born Anxious.
On launching the new clothing range Katie Price said, “I am really happy for Harvey to release his own official range of clothing which celebrates his love of frogs and also a way of donating to Anna Kennedy’s charity and raise autism awareness through the Born Anxious clothing label.”
Anna Kennedy OBE founder of the Anna Kennedy Online charity added; “I’m so proud of Harvey as one of our Charity Ambassadors sharing his love of frogs on his new, Born Anxious clothing range. We really appreciate the donations going to our charity which are very much appreciated during these difficult times.”
Born Anxious is a homegrown clothing label set up by Kellie Barker, mother of Oscar, an autistic child living in Herne Bay, Kent.
Kellie set up the clothing label in 2018 with two main objectives, which were to make the clothes as comfortable as possible, whilst also remaining planet-friendly and to hold important information that will aim to help not only the child but also the caregiver.
