We Make Good 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 and produces a high quality, stylish and face mask that we love.
This project has created 14 jobs. Our makers receive workplace training and supports to move onto other job opportunities making way for new recruits and extending our impact in the community.
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.
The masks are form-fitted and super comfortable. The wrap around loop is perfect for those who don't like the elastic around the ears. The classic patterns make these a very stylish work option.
