Handmade Face Masks for Local Communities, Clinics & Hospitals
This variant is currently sold out
Tribal Textiles' sewing team is making 100% cotton double-layer face masks for local communities, clinics & hospitals to reduce the spread of the corona virus in the Mfuwe area.
Please help our communities by purchasing bundles of 5, 10 or 25 face masks to be distributed through Mambwe District Council's COVID-19 Response Team.
Whilst face masks don’t offer complete protection for either the wearer or others, cotton masks like ours have been shown to reduce the rate of transmission of the virus by up to 70%, if properly used.
At a time of year where we are usually buzzing with energy and anticipation for the coming season, we had to close our gates and send our artisans home to keep them safe & healthy.
But our sewing team are adamant that they want to continue making vital supplies of face masks. So a group of 10 have stayed on at Tribal - with suitable distancing and sanitation measures in place - and are immensely proud of the important work they are doing.
Thank you for supporting our community!
I live in NYC, the epicenter in America, and I wholly support and appreciate Tribal Textiles’ decision to focus on making masks. They are critical for preventing further spread of this terrible virus, and TT’s commitment to it is the best of what humans are capable of, when we choose to care about others, not just ourselves. My admiration is unending...
