Here in beautiful San Francisco, all non-essential businesses are mandated to close, including many of our subcontractors.
We were able to safely move all tasks to artisans working alone in their own studios or homes. In shipping materials back and forth to them, we are using the regular USPS daily mail pickup at our locations and theirs, in order not to increase any person-to-person interactions. We have increased production times by a few days to accommodate the shipping.
We continue to monitor the situation and have reached out to local hospitals for making masks. At this time, we are getting feedback that N95 and not the DIY masks going around social media are what is needed. If this changes, we are able to make masks and will. If you know of a hospital in need, let us know! The health and safety of our community is the top priority. Be well, everyone!
