A COLLABORATIVE STORY
Working out of Pretoria, our brand has come to share a friendship with ERRE and Isabel De Villiers Clothing, rooted in the love for creation, creativity, quality and people. When the first case of Covid-19 in South Africa was reported, we became increasingly concerned about possible shortages of face masks within South Africa, as this has been reported to happen in various other countries. In the two weeks leading up to the South African lockdown, we slowly seized all of our normal business activity, focussing solely on the production of masks, partnering with a medical supply company to produce masks and scrubs for medical professionals.
We have since designed a range of practical, reuasable, quality fabric face masks for the general working public, which are now selling online. As designers we are so excited that we are able to use our skills and creativity to adapt and help to create masks and protective wear during this difficult time. We find it so inspiring that our brands, as so many other South Africans, can come together and help as a team, recognising that there is strength in numbers and community. We believe that as a country we will overcome this with resillience and love as we have done time and time again!
