Cloth Masks: a washable cloth mask for you
Buy a quality mask for yourself - we should all be wearing them when out shopping or in other confined areas.
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. When 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.Made from:3 layers of 100% cotton, elastic and a metal nose wire
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.
