Partnered with the Autism Society

Oowee Products are Hand Stitched by adults on the autism spectrum.

Did you know that each day two North Carolina families have a child diagnosed with a form of autism. The incidence of autism is now 1 in 88 births and 1 in 43 for boys. We are so proud to be partnered with the Autism Society of North Carolina! Adults with autism are hired to hand stitch all of our Sleeves. They enjoy the job and are great at it because they are so meticulous. They also thrive well with routine. Stitching the leather koozies is a way for the Autism Society to employee autistic adults. This adds routine to their life in a healthy, controlled environment.

Autism Society of NC is holding an event on June 2nd with Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures and Asheville Treetops Adventure Park. All proceeds raised by individual and team donations will go to the Autism Society of North Carolina to offer respite, increase advocacy and services, and to assist families in Western North Carolina!

Zipping for Autism, the first event of its kind in the country, had over 30 teams and raised

$31,000 in its first year!
