Enayball & Soapstone

Enayball is a social enterprise making accessible drawing tools for people with physical disabilities. Their drawing tool enables anyone with a physical disability, including the most highly paralysed people, to independently draw. It is a joy to use and a gateway to increase autonomy, expression and resilience.  

Soapstone is a sustainable way to sanitise your hands. The pocket sized dispenser is a refillable, durable object, eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles, ultimately leading to a more sustainable alternative to current products. It is a joy to use – rub it in your hands like a bar of soap to clean the device AND your hands – so you can safely share it with your friends.
