A Must Have Accessory
A face mask is just one tool in fighting the spread of the Covid19 virus. Staying inside and physically distancing is ideal, but if you can't do that, wearing a face mask provides a physical barrier to the virus.
And if you are going to wear a mask why not make it a fashion accessory.
Our tailoring team are making and selling cotton masks that are stylish, sustainable, washable and therefore reusable with a triple layer and at a very reasonable price.
Our masks sell for 5,000 UGX or US$2.00 each (but it does not include DHL delivery costs). However, if you order 1000 masks you will only pay for 50% of the delivery costs.
If you would like to help us to distribute our masks or would like to keep family and friends safe by giving them a mask, please contact Ruth at firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of masks you would like and where you would like them shipped to and Ruth will then provide you with a quote and payment options.
