‘Great British Designer Face Coverings: Reusable, for People and Planet’

Now considered to be an essential item, reusable and sustainable designer masks / face coverings have been launched by the British Fashion Council (BFC). The non-surgical masks were designed by the likes of Julien Macdonald, Mulberry and Liam Hodges and manufactured by sustainable company Bags of Ethics using zero single-use plastics.

The initiative aims to raise £1 million for charity with 100% of proceeds being split between 3 charities: NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal, BFC Foundation Fashion Fund and Wings of Hope Children’s Charity.

The fabric sustainable designer masks are being sold at £15 for a pack of 3 reusable and washable masks and 2 protective pouches. They are available to buy through the British Fashion Council’s website, as well as John Lewis & Partners, ASOS, Boots and Sainsbury’s, online and in-store.
