With highly contagious corona-virus (COVID -19) rapidly spreading throughout the world, the demand for masks in the public has skyrocketed. Foreseeing this demand in the reusable cloth mask, KSID took this as a huge opportunity to empower the Kudumbashree by giving them the training to make cloth masks so that they can contribute to society and will be equipped to function as a micro enterprise.
KSID started this 10-day long training program for Kudumbashree on 25th May 2020 till 9th June 2020 and has trained around 50 members from Kudumbashree with unique ideas of making branded designer masks to go with the new trend and fashion by avoiding monotonous mono-color regular masks available in the current market.
The Training was focused on complete hygienic and ergonomically comfortable designs for masks in various sizes for kids and adults. KSID has paid utmost importance on the selection of designs, colors, patterns, and good quality fabrics including handloom, khadi fabrics, stripes, checks, traditional ikat prints, batik prints, big and small printed motifs, bright colored fabrics, mesh fabrics, etc for the mask.
KSID is a design education institute which has a key ideology of designing for the solutions for social problems and empowering society. Such training programs will help develop and support women’s power.
