PR presents our new Face Mask project. Created using fabric ‘waste’ donated by our designers, we’ve selected natural fabrics to create fun, stylish and sustainable face masks!
One of the saddest outcomes of this pandemic is the rise of domestic abuse, in Sri Lanka and worldwide. PR presents our new Face Mask project in collaboration with Ceylonese Apparel Company. We asked our designers to donate any ‘waste’ fabric and we’ve selected natural fabrics to create fun, stylish and sustainable face masks.
ALL proceeds of the sale of our masks are donated to Women In Need.
Established in 1988, Women In Need (WIN) has grown into a respected organization both locally and internationally, as an institution which has lived up to it’s objectives of protecting victims of domestic and all forms of sexual and gender-based violence.
Women In Need (WIN) is a nationally acclaimed non-governmental organization in Sri Lanka, established in 1988, providing essential support services to women and girls victimized by gender-based violence.
