I’m just like you! A parent/guardian who is looking for the best, most comfortable way for my child to wear their processor.

My daughter, Ruby was born deaf. At 1 year, in 2014, Ruby was fitted with a cochlear implant. I bought a headband which wasn’t quite what I wanted. I have always been a keen designer and have been sewing for 30 years. I knew I could come up with something better, with a more professional finish. I spent long evenings trying to design the “perfect pocket”, and through lots of trial and error came up with the RubyBand.

Our shop is based in Ireland and I’ve been running it since April 2015. I love to see other children wearing my headbands and get a huge sense of achievement when I get a lovely review from a buyer. I know how incredibly difficult those first few months are.
