We've made some face coverings from the offcuts of past collections. We're donating 100% of the profits from these masks to Hestia, a charity helping prevent domestic abuse and to assist adults and children who are suffering its effects.
The face masks are 100% cotton. They have three layers of fabric over the nose/mouth and are washable at 60 degrees. We will also include replacement elastic if the mask is too snug and needs adjusting.
These face masks are not medical grade personal protective equipment. Please wash before use + wash regularly.
Our masks are a 'lucky dip'! Because they have been made from offcuts and no single mask is the same, we will choose one to send you. If you see a colour combination that you would prefer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org after you have ordered your mask and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
In the six months since lockdown began on 23 March, 2020, Hestia saw a 52% increase (when compared to the same period last year) in installs of Bright Sky, their app providing support and information around domestic violence. In the same period it saw a 70% increase in within app calls to 999, domestic abuse services or helplines and a 38% increase in people trying to access their services.
The pandemic has challenged everyone, but for those living with the trauma and existing crisis of domestic abuse, it has magnified fears and made recovery more difficult. Your support is much appreciated.
