Eczema Clothing (known as Comfort Clothing) was founded in 1980 and since 2021 owned and managed by Jo. Both ladies understand what it is to live with eczema with their daughters suffering from severe eczema as young children.
This personal experience inspired both Dorothy and Jo to design and seek suitable clothing for their own children and then to provide this for others in similar situations.
Cotton was by far the best available fabric – soft yet durable and washable at high temperatures. Dorothy was a pioneer in the use of Organic Cotton, always focusing on natural products and avoiding the use of chemicals.
They are now approved by AllergyUK and have been endorsed by Great Ormond Street Hospital.
