Michael Coates Shares His Mzansi Mask Journey

May 15, 2020 2 min read

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.

Q: How have you been coping with COVID-19 in a personal capacity?

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. 

Q: How has work/business been affected by COVID-19 - is it business as usual?

I’m English and we retired to the Western Cape so work is not a problem for me.

Q: What measures have you taken to ensure safety for yourself, your employees/colleagues, and your family?

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. 

Q: How have you enjoyed your Mzansi Masks?

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. 

Q: What is the first thing that you will do once lockdown is over?

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!
