Once you’ve worn a quality, hand-made mask, it’s difficult to wear anything else. We’ve noticed that many Mzansi Masks clients are loyal to the brand and keep returning to make new purchases.
On one hand, they’re keeping themselves protected during the pandemic. And on the other hand, they’re contributing to job creation in a very strained market. Thank you to everyone who has supported Mzansi Masks so far!
We like to get to know our customers and enjoy hearing stories about how they’re coping with COVID-19. We recently reached out to three-time customer Michael Coates to hear about how he’s surviving COVID-19.
Its been a challenge as my wife had to return to China (she is Chinese) and she is currently there. I’ve also set my self some daily fitness goals which means currently I weigh less than when lockdown started.
I’m English and we retired to the Western Cape so work is not a problem for me.
In the past 50 days, I’ve only been outside on six occasions for shopping. So being alone, wearing a mask, and social distancing when outside is a must.
I’m sure that once we return to the new “normal” we will be required to wear masks for some time. So for me, the masks will become a fashion item! I love the many colours and patterns of my nine masks (I have 8 different designs). I love the quality and the feel of the mask when I’m wearing them.
Crazily I will get a haircut! I usually get my haircut every four weeks and it's now been eight since I last had a haircut.
Thank you for sharing Michael!
