Lingerie manufacturer SPEIDEL expands its production with protective masks made of 100% organic cotton

Bodelshausen, 25 March 2020.

The lingerie specialist SPEIDEL from Bodelshausen has expanded its production and starts manufacturing mouth and nose protection masks. The family business is actually known for high-quality lingerie made from sustainable materials. "We would also like to actively contribute our share in these difficult times and help to eliminate the bottleneck in the procurement of protective masks and thus slow down the spread of the corona virus," says Swenja Speidel, Brand and Product Manager at SPEIDEL.

The company is starting production of the mouth and nose protection masks with immediate effect. They are made of 100 percent organic cotton (two-ply) and are washable at 95 degrees so that they can be used several times. Although SPEIDEL's products are not certified, they still protect against saliva and prevent unnecessary touching of the face. The mouth and nose protection masks will be available in two closure versions: with elastic bands or for tying.

"The corona virus affects each and every one of us and SPEIDEL, like many other companies, is trying to help in the best possible way in this extraordinary situation - according to the motto #flattenthecurve. Everyone is willing to help, which gives our employees additional motivation. The development of our mouth and nose protection was a new challenge that really everyone took up. Now that we have equipped all our employees with a mask, production and delivery is starting," says Swenja Speidel.

SPEIDEL produces the fabric for the masks at the company site in Bodelshausen, and the protective equipment is then made up and sewn in the company's own factories in Hungary and Romania.
