Cloth masks: Washable Kids Facemask
This is a washable cloth mask for children. 100% cotton and made to the same high quality as the adult masks, with nose wire to ensure snug fit and elastic that goes around the head...so much more comfortable to wear!
Our cloth masks are made by women from a refugee background – present, past and new 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.
All surplus from the sale of masks will be used to develop The Textile Studio, an initiative to support women from a refugee or criminal justice background to attain long term employment.
