Cloth Face Masks
Our cloth masks are made by women from a refugee background – present and past employees of The Textile Studio - a charity that provides jobs and training to refugee women. As well as the supporting the women to be leaders in their community this initiative is providing them with much needed income continuity at this difficult time.
The masks are made remotely from new cotton or linen, are then steam ironed, and are sent to a central location where they are left unopened for two days. This removes the risk of contamination, in case of asymptomatic contamination by our Makers. They will then be distributed by Irish Refugee Council, using extra precautions i.e. gloves and masks while packing.
If you buy a mask for yourself, it will also be left for two days before being packed up by a member of our team (using gloves and masks) and posted out to you.
