The Project

A Project of Masterpiece Europe

OUR MISSION & GOALS

The traditional tailoring professionals currently face a number of difficulties resulting from globalisation, rapid technological changes, digitalisation, shortage of skilled workers, the need to compete with large companies and industries, and linked to the unique character of this premium trade.

The project of The Mask You Can Trust shall help these professionals to get more visibility, eventually sell some mask but the aim is also to attract the attention of the public on the existance of this profession, of the situation of these artisans, that were already fighting for the existence before the corona by as offering a rather high quality and therefore relatively expensive product.

Small artisans are not always also social media and marketing experts, this project shall help them to access a wider public and be more recognized.

Masks CAN BE FUN, it can be fashionable.
You DON’T HAVE TO use the “single use” mask made of 100% Polyester made in China, there are people here that can offer you a product that can protect you too and that might even look nice and be comfortable
By buying a mask from a local artisan YOU HELP HIM SURVIVE, there is help from the state, but this won’t be enough to keep the running on the long term!
The knowledge, competences of these professionals is part of the European Culture, it is our heritage and by ordering just a small mask, you can contribute to its preservation.

*** ALL THE RESPECT TO THE MASKS MADE IN CHINA AND WE TOTALLY SUPPORT THE NEED FOR DISPOSABLE MASKS, ESPECIALLY FOR THE MEDICAL STAFF. WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE TO TELL THAT WASHABLE MASKS EXIST TOO!
