Made for the community, by the community. There's never been a more important time to support your local community than right now, which is why we've partnered with local seamstresses and tailors in the Boston area to make face masks and neck gaiters out of our high performance fabrics. These individuals have been hit especially hard over the last several months as the revenue from prom, graduation, and professional tailoring services has disappeared.
We're paying our tailors and seamstresses $5 for each mask or neck gaiter they make as a way to keep their businesses funded and get as many face coverings to our customers as we can. When you purchase a mask or gaiter, $5 goes directly to the sewer, $5 for shipping, $5 for materials, and $5 to support Manual.
As a small business, we're asking you, our community, to help us fund this Boston based operation and make this effort possible. Together, as we look for ways to support one-another, we'll build a stronger community than ever before.
For our neck gaiter we're using a high performance fabric from a mill in Italy called Pontetorto. It's a blend of merino wool (36%), polyester (56%) and elastane (8%) and is a medium weight that is ideally suited for the fall/winter months ahead. It's also naturally odor resistant and is treated with a DWR that resists water (perfect for dodging fall rain showers and winter snow squalls). All-in-all, this will be your new favorite essential... from the ski slopes to the city streets, you won't want to take it off.
This gaiter is not PPE, has not been evaluated by the CDC or FDA and is not a substitute for N95, surgical, or procedural masks.
