Masks are going to be part of our lives for some time. The Population Foundation of India (PFI) approached Dastkar to develop masks with women’s organisations to meet this demand. We selected the groups on the basis of their skills and needs. Sales and orders of their regular products had ceased with the onset of Covid and the lockdown. Each group used their own signature skills and locally available fabric. There were endless delays in production and delivery due to the difficulties women had in getting to their centres, markets for fabric being shut, and transport services not functioning. All communication was through Whatsapp video!  We are happy to showcase the results.
