MAIN LINE, PA — Main Line Health's workers will be fighting the coronavirus with style, as the health care group got a donation from one of the most prominent names in fashion.
Louis Vuitton donated 1,000 non-surgical face masks to Main Line Health to support the region’s Covid-19 relief efforts. All donated masks were locally produced at Louis Vuitton’s workshops in the United States.
The face masks are made of cotton cloth with the ability to be re-used, washed and adjusted to better fit a variety of users.
Phoenixville Hospital was also gifted masks from Louis Vuitton.
The company re-purposed all five of its American workshops in Piscataway, New Jersey; Johnson County, Texas; Ontario, California; San Dimas, California; and Irwindale, California to produce face masks to aid in the battle against Covid-19 within the United States.
In coherence with social distancing and workplace guidelines specified by officials, each workshop ensures safe and healthy working conditions for all artisans.
Collectively when the workshops are at efficiency, artisans across the five workshops will create hundreds of thousands of masks which Louis Vuitton will continue to work with local organizations to donate and distribute in states currently most heavily impacted by Covid-19.
