As concerns about the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE) grow, manufacturers around the country are making substitutes for healthcare workers.
One such person is designer Inga Goodman and her partner factory, which is producing masks made from apparel fabric and interfacing.
“We are using two layers of thermal bonded polypropylene inside. They are adjustable and breathable and can be washed in hot water without a wear,” Goodman said.
She also reported that manufacturing is done by Creative Visual Concepts manufacturing, which is seeking the support of brands. Production costs are about $4 per mask, and the company stated that it would like to donate them to those in need or sell at cost. Interested supporters can donate here.
