Masaba starts production of non-surgical masks for donation

Fashion designers all across the world are coming together to the fight against the novel coronavirus. Indian designers are also doing everything that they can to help in this situation. Designers Anita Dongre, Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Masaba Gupta are all part of this group.

Masaba recently took to Instagram to share pictures of quirky face masks being made by her workers. She shared the pictures with the caption, “Changing gears for some time. In the wake of the current pandemic and lockdown across the country, all operations at the House of Masaba came to a halt.”

She added, “While the damage that this (Covid-19) will do is immeasurable at this point, my hope is to keep my chin up by doing my bit to help my country instead, in this time. We have started the production of non-surgical masks for donation at a production facility keeping all hygiene and safety standards in mind. These masks are washable & reusable.”

She concluded by saying that the masks are being made from the material that was to be used for the production of her clothes. “The Masks are being made from fabric that was meant for garments, at one of our production vendors. The team is small – with 3 workers who live at this same facility in quarantine and we are making sure the workers are being paid, and are taken care of,” she wrote.
