Izzy Wheels is a Dublin based brand founded by Irish sisters Ailbhe and Izzy Keane. The idea was inspired by Izzy who was born with Spina Bifida and is paralyzed from her waist down. Izzy always saw her wheelchair as a symbol of freedom but never felt it expressed her bubbly personality. Ailbhe created Izzy Wheels as her final year college project in The National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in 2015.
Izzy Wheels has been featured in some of the world’s top global publications including Vogue, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Forbes, Oprah Magazine, It’s Nice That, TechCrunch and many more. The brand has won 15 national awards and both sisters were named on Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2018.
