the brand’s products aim to spark conversation and inspire a radical shift in traditional design approaches. FFORA’s first collection, the essentials suite, is comprised of fashionable and functional lifestyle accessories for manual wheelchair users, including a proprietary wheelchair-attachable dock, a versatile unisex leather bag offered in two sizes, and a cupholder – all designed for easy installation and effortless use.

FFORA products are sturdy and reliable in function, with PVD coated metal parts and pebbled leather ensuring weatherproof durability. the bags, available in an assortment of colors, can be utilized in various orientations that suit a customer’s needs; with or without a disability, standing or seated, an additional shoulder strap prompts wearability both on the body horizontally, or docked securely on wheelchairs vertically.

the two-way zippers complete with thumb-pulls open the bag flat like books for easy access and organization, particularly for those without fine motor skills, and the one-size cupholder allows for customers to hold their hot or cold beverage in place to enjoy pushing freely with both hands. at the heart of the FFORA product range is the attachment system, compatible with 21 different manual wheelchair brands (which is approximately 170+ models of wheelchairs worldwide).

  • Beautiful design, but that purse would be stolen very easily…someone can just grab and run. And yes, people in wheelchairs do get ripped off!
