There is a vital plea that people don't use medical-grade masks as they are in short supply. As a result, we decided to use our existing network of suppliers, crafters and communities to manufacture WHO recommended, washable and reusable face masks.
The manufacturing of our face masks is being facilitated in both Johannesburg and Cape Town by our crafters - the small sewing initiatives who usually make the merchandise for our retail stores. Our goal is to produce over 60 000 masks using our iconic shweshwe material, protecting as many people as possible and allowing us to safeguard the livelihoods of our crafters.
- WHO recommended
- Made from double lined, 100% cotton shwe shwe fabric
- Revives jobs for 50+ staff from local communities, avoiding job loss
- Each mask comes with an informational pamphlet that includes wash and care instruction
- Assorted Colours (red, brown, orange)
- 5 per pack
Delivery: 7-10 days from order
All proceeds made by purchasing this pack allows us to manufacture additional masks for distribution to vulnerable communities in South Africa through the Goodbye Malaria mask initiative.
