The Embroidery Barn has started to produce masks for businesses and families following recent government advice. The masks are £5 each and are made with a colour fabric of choice with organic cotton natural rubber elastic (softer on the ears than usual elastic used). If companies want their logos on they will be £9 each.
Since the beginning of lockdown the company has been making masks for key workers under its #Masks4All Dorchester campaign. So far 600 handmade masks have been distributed to key workers, care homes, GP surgeries and food banks. It has raised over £1,700 and it is hoping to get more funding soon so they can keep producing.
