In early March, the US was hit hard by COVID-19, and companies across the country felt the impact. Almost immediately after, a record number of layoffs followed and many things seemed uncertain. Rustico was no different and we had to take a step back to see what would be the best pivot to make for our company.
After some lengthy brainstorming and thorough analysis, we decided to put our best foot forward and build masks. We retrofitted our workshop and adjusted our processes to keep our team safe. The goal was to handcraft tough, reliable face masks and, for each one purchased, we'd donate one to healthcare workers on the frontlines.
With your help, the response has been simply amazing! Our goal is to make enduring face masks to help protect American families and communities. See our journey as we work together.
