On August the 13th the world celebrates everything left-handed
and this year the Co-operative Xest site is lending a hand to lefties
with a number of left-handed mobility aids and home products.
International Left-handed Day is the one day of the year where left-handed people
are recognised and appreciated in an arguably right-handed biased world. Left-handed
products can be difficult to find in most common high street stores and can make
many tasks uncomfortable or unnatural for the average left-handed person.
This is where co-operative Xest has stepped in to highlight the many products that
can make being left-handed easier and more comfortable from left-handed walking sticks to specialist cutlery designed with the left-handed person in mind.
The company that specialises in helpful products that make every day life easier
understands many situations where difficulties could arise from something as
seemingly small such as opening jam jars, to providing support and stability via
walking sticks and walkers for those who are unsteady on their feet.
As Andrea Dipple, Managing Director at co-operative Xest mentions, left-handed
people are much less of a minority these days and there is a definite call for
“There is much more demand these days for left-handed products whether they are
left-handed scissors that are less laborious to use or left-handed walking sticks
that help to support the body’s weight comfortably.
“There are many high profile left-handed personalities ranging from US President
Barack Obama to author Lewis Carroll and actor Robert DeNiro. But as well as the
more famous left-handed people it is estimated 10% of the world’s population is
Andrea added, “this is why here at co-operative Xest we have made sure to stock a
wide range of left-handed products that ensure left-handed people are not
inconvenienced or have to adapt to right-handed products that may not feel natural
or even comfortable to use”
With a number of left-handed and multi use products that suit left and right-handed
people available on site as well as one handed products for those with disabilities
or dexterity issues then it makes co-operative Xest a welcome resource for many
