It’s Mid-May, where has all of the time gone? Despite the showroom being closed, Elements has been busy. First off, Elements would like to thank all those who replied to our survey, your feedback is invaluable and will guide us on our path to re-open more relevant, responsive and effective.
At the beginning of April we were approached by Terry S.A., exclusive distributor of Havaianas in the Philippines and owner of CommonThread and Aura Athletica, to collaborate in making reusable masks. I gathered fabric (100% cotton, cotton/poly, solution dyed acrylic) which was not too thick, and sent them boxes and rolls of fabric. Their designers sorted through the boxes; selected fabrics due to the appropriate thickness, breathability, washability; and developed different prototypes. The masks are hand sewn and in a true sense of bayanihan – the “ >” emblem is to remind us all that we are greater than this pandemic. Children sizes have not been left out! We hope to have stock soon.
From fabrics samples to prototypes.
