Two West Bridgford girls who make facemasks for the community have returned due to popular demand.
Loughborough University Textiles student Chloe and her sister Tilly began making facemasks in a variety of patterned fabrics to sell at a small charge during the beginning of lockdown.
As the lockdown began to ease, the demand decreased, but since the announcement that facemasks would become mandatory to wear in shops, the demand had shot up again, so Chloe and Tilly are once again hard at work.
Chloe and Tilly from West Bridgford have together produced over 1600 masks so far for the local community. This includes local businesses such as hairdressers, deli’s and care providers.
The no- medical grade face masks are handmade double layered washable poly cotton/cotton with elastic fastenings. These face masks are being sold at the competitive price of £4.50 per mask. Plus, if you want to buy face masks for the whole family, you can get 4 masks for just £16.
The girls have also been involved with the West Bridgford Community Helpers – a group set up to join locals together so that they can help those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
If you are a business and would like to order a set design, the girls can advise you on the best fabrics. They would ask you to provide the fabrics and they will make the face masks for you – easy!
