Published on 20/07/20

With the increasing of Victorian restrictions and ever-changing nature of COVID-19 across Australia we are all experiencing tough times right now. The Victorian Government has made it mandatory for the general public to wear masks in public. In response we have created a go-to shopping guide on where you can purchase masks from Australian made, ethically accredited businesses. Keeping you and your family safe, while supporting our local industry and garment workers.

Please note: these masks are not for medical PPE use and have been created for community use only.
