Corona Virus Response MASK PRODUCTION

While not fully operational, we are grateful to be permitted to reopen. We appreciate your patience with fulfillment delays as we work through the backlog with limited staff. 

Our new efforts to manufacture protective masks have evolved considerably in the past 48 hours. Guided by the Manufacturing Association of Greater Philadelphia, we soon will be partnering with other local business to sew surgical masks, and medical clothing. In addition we are supporting the hundreds of home-based workrooms across the country in a grassroots effort to make cotton fabric masks. Check out this article highlighting one of these workrooms.  https://www.goupstate.com/news/20200323/lending-helping-hand-srhs-has-received-10000-donations-of-masks-other-equipment

Lastly, we are developing our own engineered print design for stylized masks. This would allow YOU to participate, if you like, by providing permission to use your artwork. Stay tuned-  more on that soon!

For now, the workroom volunteers across the country are having difficulty finding 3/8″ or 1/4″ elastic and any size cotton twill tape. If you have some, or can purchase some, that you would be willing to donate, please send it to Adaptive Textiles, Attn: MASKS, and we will distribute to the volunteers.
