Type One Style was founded in 2021 by husband and wife Emma and Charlie. Here's their story of how the brand was born:
"On a cold, quiet night in March of 2021. Our co-founder Emma had rolled over in bed, catching the adhesive of her Dexcom G6 sensor on the bedsheet. The Dexcom G6 sensor filament was ripped out in a flash. Emma screamed in pain and agonized over losing a £50 Dexcom sensor.
The scream woke up Charlie and both of his cats, and he immediately dressed Emma's small wound and frantically searched the internet for a solution to stop her Dexcom G6 from coming off again.
We discovered adhesive patches for her Dexcom G6 as a solution but were not impressed with the quality of the Dexcom patches available. We decided that we could make our own patches, with better materials and designs.
So we did just that. We cleared out the spare room, started making CGM patches for Emma by hand, and launched a little store on Instagram.
Since then, Emma has never even come close to losing another Dexcom G6 sensor."
