Fashion has always been a platform for self-expression. As face masks are quickly becoming a part of our daily routine, many of us are choosing to showcase our individual style through them. Combat COVID19 in style by purchasing your next protective mask from one of CIIN’s favorite local designers. Most are supporting local businesses and empowering sit-at-home women in need.
In an effort to aid local creatives and talented makers, Born Again is an initiative that proved to be conscious and impactful. By using left over designer fabrics Born Again was well, born! Handcrafted by Sitat Byoot, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is the brand’s motto. We add to that ‘Empower’, while helping to secure jobs for the less fortunate artisanal women during this time of crises, Born Again offers a wide array of stylish and statement masks to choose from.
