This was a sturt-up project of Mustafa Özkır. In Turkey, goverment must offer to organize special education for mentally disabled people. Mustafa offered a brand, profesional and useful education materials. First started wearing material about the basic clothes like; pants, shirts, buttons, zips, etc.
This case is so spesific and interesrting. Could you please imagine it: You are a teacher. you and 3-10 students in a special class wtih their parents some times. And you should teach to a girl “How wearing a bra and use its clasps.” or teach to boy “How wearing his pants.” If you dont have any special material about it you should use what they have on them daily. Espically in Turkey, this education is realy difficult about ethic, phsically and neccessary. This project was about solve this handicap.
We could find only those product groups. We noticed a huge problem about them: While a person was wearing shirts, person’s eyes looking to buttons from top and little bite back section. Actually we are looking to our body parts and operate on them. But, about those products, user looking to a object outside from her/his body.
Already, mentally disabled people have been learning difficultly. Those products are not user friendly for them. Actually, teachers have used them untill notice this problem. And then, they are not using one more time.
