The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the world we live in, from job cuts to shortages of life-saving medical equipment. In an effort to support Canadians through these difficult and uncertain times, the responsible luxury accessory brand Piper & Skye announced it was employing over 30 sewists to made non-medical grade fabric masks for various vulnerable persons nationwide.
“This pandemic has hit our global economy hard and as unemployment rates rise, I started to notice friends and family struggling with the uncertainty, “ states Joanna MacDonald, founder of PIPER & SKYE. “I’m providing opportunities to those Canadians with the skillset to make tangible protective necessities for the communities going largely unseen right now, and augmenting the need for masks across the country.”
