SAINT JAMES PRODUCES SUSTAINABLE MASKS

By Crash

Saint James has decided to transform its knitting activity to make masks that protect humans and their environment for health establishments and, in priority, hospitals which are having hard time staying afloat in these trying times.

These protective masks, made of washable cotton, consist of two layers of cotton fabric and a layer of cotton fleece between the two layers. They are machine washable at 60°C after 3 hours of continuous use without handling. This mask blocks the emission of sputum when you speak, breathe, sneeze and cough. It does not protect against contamination from the outside. It is in no way a substitute for the FFP2 mask. Its objective is to facilitate the maintenance of the activity of health care institutions by allowing the reorientation of personal protective masks towards the caregivers. These masks – the company hopes to produce 20.000 – will be first given to Mont Saint-Michel hospital before supplying other health establishments.
