#FASHIONUNITES – ESSENTIAL WEAR

FASHION UNITES IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19

We, as designers, have decided to take hands in our effort to support each other and the community of seamstresses that works in our studios.

We will manufacture and distribute a range of masks that are beautifully constructed from quality materials.

The funds raised will be used to sustain our smaller couture Ateliers and the staff that we employ.

The full range: colours, styles and silhouettes will be available on each brand’s website and social media platforms.

All the masks will be manufactured by us, the designers, and the staff that we employ directly and indirectly.

We are humbled by the support in these trying times.  Erna, Gabi & Stephen xxx

The South African garment and textile industry employs many seamstresses, pattern makers and cutters to name but a few. Your support, by purchasing a mask, will contribute to sustaining this already fragile business sector and to keeping it from collapsing due to the threat of this global pandemic.

LEVEL 4, Lock down demands that all South African’s or foreigners currently living in South Africa should wear a face mask when they are not at home.

These multiple layer cotton face masks when used correctly, washed and ironed after every wear can offer the following protection to the wearer:

– Reduces transmission of droplets from the person wearing the mask when they cough or sneeze.

– Reduces the risk of exposure when you are in a crowded space such as your office, hospital or grocery store.

– By wearing the mask you create awareness around Covid-19 and it also reminds you to not touch your face.

IMPORTANT GUIDELINES when wearing a face mask:

– Wash hands before and after you have put on your mask.

– Make sure the fit is comfortable and not to tight.

– Do not touch the cloth part covering the mouth when putting the mask on or taking the mask off.

– Do not touch, fiddle with or adjust the mask while you are wearing it.

– After every wear wash with warm soapy water and iron when dry. This is a means of disinfecting the mask.

– When taking of the mask after you have worn it, undo the strings or elastic carefully and move it away from the face. Immediately put it in a container preserved for the washing of masks.
