UpWrap Face Masks


ABOUT US

UpWrap was born from a mission to provide a sustainable, ethical, and luxury alternative to traditional paper gift-wrapping through re-usable fabric wrappers made from excess textile generously donated by our brand partners including Peter Pilotto, Mary Katranzou, and Rokh, among others.

RESPONDING TO COVID-19

In response to the healthcare crisis, UpWrap has pivoted its resources to coordinate a volunteer effort and produce reusable fabric facemasks utilising fabric off-cuts and dead-stock, giving these unused fabric remnants new life to help save lives now and as the world resumes work in the coming weeks.

OUR FOUNDER

Amber Testino is Managing Partner of Art Partner and has been an agent for artists in fashion for twenty-five years. She brings to the project her business and creative networks along with a life-long passion for sustainability.

WE NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE!

We are aware of the overwhelmed health care systems and widespread shortages of medical supplies due to COVID -19 and we would like to help. UpWrap and Art Partner are mobilising to make and distribute fabric face masks in response to this emergency and we would appreciate your assistance!

OUR ASK

Brands, Please donate any over-stock or off-cuts of light to medium weight cotton or other light-weight breathable, washable fabric for the creation of facemasks produced and distributed by UpWrap.

Makers, Calling on anyone with a sewing machine; students, designers, grandmothers to help make masks (details and video tutorial available at UpWrap.org) to help sew masks that will be donated directly to charities and organizations in need of personal protective equipment.

Everyone, Please help share the message on your Instagram. Tag @Up.Wrap in your call to action, and use #iwearmymaskfor and tell us who you are wearing your facemask for in order to protect—it can be an individual, organization, community, or country that you are doing your part to help protect!

Besides washing hands and respecting social distancing, the number one way to stop the spread of COVID -19 is by wearing a protective face mask. UpWrap will be selling face masks at UpWrap.org for £8.00 with 100% of proceeds in April being donated to the production of additional face masks which will be donated to communities at risk. Every purchase will make a difference to the cause.

OUR MASKS

UpWrap face masks are protective, sustainable and considered in their design. Our masks are washable and reusable, and they can accommodate a disposable filter for those with more direct risk of exposure. All members of our sewing and delivery teams wear protective masks, use disinfectant gels while working and adhere to government guidelines on safe distancing in the workplace.
