The 'Bibi' Mask by Bibi and Zaky

The story behind the 'Bibi' Mask - One specific sewer for The Collective Thread, Bibi, with the help of her husband, both refugees, made over 4,000 masks for TCT.  Zaky, a former Afghan interpreter for the US military, was laid off early from his job and the only income they had was from TCT’s mask making project.  Amazingly, through hard work and dedication, this project has provided enough income for a down payment on a home for Bibi and Zaky, an American Dream for sure.  In the midst of crisis TCT has experienced hope in the community they serve through stories like these.

Our 'Bibi' mask is a pale grey and red traditional patterned textile, made of cotton, it is adjustable, reversible, and washable. There is a slot where you can add a filter if you like.  We have a limited amount of these lovely masks but when they are gone, you can still buy masks directly from The Creative Thread's website at https://thecollectivethread.org/ (and yes you can donate there too!)
All $12 goes back to The Collective Thread to pay for supplies and to continue to support and empower their female workforce.
