Deafblind Tips 2 – Jean buttons

Braille labels on jeans buttons

I have three jeans in the same design. The jeans feel the same, but I have a way of labelling them so I know which colour I am choosing.

I create a label by stamping the colour code in braille onto Dymo tape then stick the tape onto the button of the jeans. I read the braille dots using my clever finger, not by me! The braille dots show “bk” for black, “lb” for light blue, “db” for dark blue.

It truly helps. See photo.
