Initial idea from Wabaiya Kariuki from Nairobi:
Hey, following the COVID-19 pandemic, I would love to have 10 face masks made. I understand that homemade masks don't offer 100% protection but there are some guidelines provided by health experts to make them safe
1. must be 100% cotton
2. Use 2 to 3 layers
3. Insert a pocket for a filter
4. Add a wire on the side seams to ensure the mask is compact
5. Use an elastic as side strands.
6. The fabric should be washable.
Kindly if you're aware of other protective regulations follow them as you make the masks
Looking forward to hearing from you.
