Mrs Keung, the founder, used to work in the clothing industry. When taking care of her elderly mother, she felt that the elderly in Hong Kong would love to use more aesthetic bibs for eating. As there was a lack of bibs and clothes designed for the physically disabled people in the market, she decided to start a business to design and produce care clothing for the elderly and disabled people, giving the neglected groups in society their deserved dignity and hope by infusing love and respect into the design of these specially made clothes. Her bibs and medical storage bags (used to store urine bags when going out to avoid embarrassment) are particularly popular.
Rhys was officially open for business in 2018. Mrs Keung’s daughter Kadri, who is a graduate of the Institute of Textiles and Clothing of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, is the designer of Rhys. Grassroots women and people with physical and mental disabilities are also employed.
