Turkish Towels 4 Face Masks

Santa Barbara, CA April 13th 2020 - 

The Riviera Towel Co. announced today they are donating free towels to anyone who is making face masks for medical professionals and those in need. 

"When I heard one of the challenges for home based mask makers was a lack of fabric I knew we could help." - stated Co-founder Albert DiPadova.   "After boosting an ad on Facebook offering free Turkish Cotton towels for making face masks the request came flooding in from around the country"

The tight flat woven 100% Turkish cotton makes the perfect material for face masks. Depending on the number of folds you want, you can make up to 15-20 masks from one towel, which are extremely soft so they don't chafe your skin when worn all day. 

Locally, Anneliese from Santa Barbara Mask Makers is making face masks for the SB community including non-profits, grocery store workers and Animal Hospitals. She's also sending some to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC where her daughter is a surgeon.
