Wolford Deploys Expertise And Resources To Support Fight Against COVID-19

Top hosiery brand Wolford is deploying its extensive expertise and resources to support the fight against COVID-19

Since beginning of March the brand’s production facilities at the headquarters in Bregenz, Austria and in Slovenia have been working at full speed to produce face masks for its employees and consumers.

The masks are made of a double-layered high-quality breathable fabric to ensure easy breathing when they are worn. A completely water-repellent finishing provides full coverage even against minimal moisture. 

Typically Wolford, a perfect fit is created with the finest knitting, individually adaptable aluminum nose-wires and highly elastic, extra-thin bands to keep the masks in place.

Keeping an eye on the environment as usual, the masks are washable and therefore reusable over and over again. The main quantity of the masks will be handed out for free to employees in highly affected areas such as Italy and Austria.

Wolford have also announced the production of 200,000 medical face masks for health institutions in Vorarlberg, home to the brand since 1950.

A limited number of masks, the Wolford Care Mask, will be sold through the brand’s e-commerce to customers worldwide. The income achieved will only be used to cover production costs and logistics and for donations to healthcare related activities to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
