Liberty Face Coverings
During the initial lockdown of 2020, the team at the Liberty Printing Mill in Northern Italy immediately got to work making face coverings from upcycled Tana Lawn™ cotton. When it first came to developing and producing the Liberty face coverings, time was the key factor – the team at the Printing Mill had to think quickly and use the materials they had available, to get the face coverings out to those who needed them. The face coverings were developed using upcycled Tana fabric, scientifically treated for antimicrobial and hydrorepellent properties.
In addition to this, for each pack of five face coverings sold by Liberty during the 2020 summer donation scheme, one covering was donated to a charity, with a total donation number of over 50,000 individual face coverings. Hard-working organisations that received donations of Liberty face coverings include care homes and homelessness charities. As a staff member at the Sophie Hayes Foundation (our ‘Liberty, For Life’ charity partner) explained: “During these difficult times, in which wearing masks is becoming the norm in an abnormal world, every face covering donated by Liberty is a public show of hope for our women survivors – and a positive reminder they have not been forgotten.”
