Bradford & Bryan Manning | Co-Founders of the Two Blind Brothers
Bradford and Bryan Manning are two blind brothers on a mission to cure blindness.

At a young age, they were diagnosed with an eye disease that causes blindness over time. To fight back, they left their former careers to start Two Blind Brothers, a small charitable clothing company that donates 100% of the profits to drive life-changing research for a cure for blindness. Their condition inspired a special vigilance for details, a passion that carries over into the construction of their clothing line. Two Blind Brothers focuses on quality, comfort, and “sense of touch.”
