Covid-19 Face Masks
(pack of 2)
We have joined forces with our mascot sewers to produce beautiful shweshwe masks. The purchase will not only support this job creation project but also help us donate masks to Livingstone Hospital in PE.
So many of you have seen and bought our beautiful animal mascots, designed and sewn in partnership with Baby Cuddles, a job creation project for women living in tiny settlement of Kylemore, in the Western Cape. However, now due to Covid-19 and the increased demand for masks, the team of seamstresses have adapted their business and are making masks.
The masks are made according to the Department of Health guidelines, using the Shweshwe cotton used for the mascots. They are made up of 3 layers: The outer layer is 100% cotton; the middle layer –Spunbon interfacing, which inhibits the transfer of small particles yet doesn’t inhibit breathing and the inner layer is made of polyester. Elastic ear loops make putting on and taking off the mask as quick and easy as possible. There is also washed ‘denim’ cotton masks available.
The masks are available in four sizes: Mens, ladies, teenagers (ages 7 to 12) and children (3 to 6 years).
The masks are being sold in packs of two for R100 (R50 each) and for every mask purchased, one will be donated to the Livingstone Hospital in PE. Upon order and payment the masks will shipped directly to you.
From May 1 the wearing of a mask is mandatory when leaving home so make sure you buy yours. Remember that you are supporting these ladies whose earnings depend on their sewing. Three seamstresses will be working from home producing these masks – the income they receive will support 21 people.
