A design that started with love became an apparel company for people with disabilities

Sometimes good design solves a problem. That's how Nicole Puzzo and Joanne DiCamillo started their design journey.

It began when Puzzo couldn't find proper clothes for her daughter, Stella, who has cerebral palsy and had underwent major surgery at 5 years old. After several design iterations, Puzzo and DiCamillo developed a pair of pants that feature side zippers that could work for Stella.

And so began their Swampscott company, befree, which makes accessible clothing. The duo join Radio Boston to talk about their business and inspiration.
