Intelligent and Empathic Design

In collaboration with Innovate Product Design based in Salisbury, Clip-Knix focused on designing and manufacturing a practical yet fashionable underwear solution for the female sex at this stage, that negates the need to bend or stretch when dressing.

The result is underwear that can be fastened in the front without the need for bending or turning sideways. Careful and robust research has informed the development of a highly effective and attractive range of underwear that will ultimately work for everyone.

Whilst the first range launched is aimed at the female market, Clip-Knix is designed for anyone and Clip-Knix will be expanding the range to include options for both men and children and swimwear.
