Sanyukta Shrestha's Covid-19 Response

Sustainable bridal designer Sanyukta Shrestha makes masks and visors, as well creating a special bridal package for key workers helping in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Inspired by the selfless dedication towards safety of people’s lives, the award-winning designer is taking an initiative to be part of the fight towards Coronavirus by contributing her skills to help protect those who need it. She has also created a special keyworker bridal package to treat all the brave couples when these gloomy days are over.

“By staying home, we are saving lives. As civilians we are doing our parts diligently, but we feel strongly that we need to use our skills to help frontline doctors and key workers who are risking their lives to save us in this much needed time. It has been nearly 2 weeks, working on PPE gowns prototypes and making hundreds of masks so we contribute our skills during this Pandemic. It has not been easy sourcing material during this lockdown however along with our patternmaker & seamstresses we have tried our best to take our own initiative to give back to these brave warriors by using our limited resources. It's not the N95 masks but we are designing and making masks as per CDC guidelines while locked down at home and giving to much needed keyworkers. We are committed to continue this as much as our capacity allows’’

Putting fashion to the service of the greater good, Sanyukta alongside a small team, have been creating reusable masks with 3 layers of 100% breathable cotton fabrics, and some have the option to add an extra layer of filter protection, detachable visor and nose grips. Masks have been handmade as per CDC guidelines and with the help of recognised doctor’s tutorials. CDC guidance says healthcare workers can use homemade masks and even bandanas as “a last resort.” They believe their masks are a more protective than other homemade masks with these added features.

“NHS, emergency services and all key workers throughout the country are even more stretched than usual due this pandemic. They are selflessly and tirelessly working to keep us safe, healthy, and supported. We feel it’s time we must value our armies even more. It’s a small way to give back these brave workers and it's our way of saying ‘thank you’ for their dedication”

As an optimistic and sustainable company, Sanyukta Shrestha have always seen light in dark tunnels, when everyone said there is nothing to look for. We are all in this unprecedented difficult time together now, and they strongly believe in the power of kindness and positive spirit. Caring for the planet has been the DNA of this brand and they feel that once we are over Covid-19, we will be closer to each other than ever before.

As an ethical bridal company, Sanyukta Shrestha decided to to also join a national scheme which has partnered with 13,000, retailers both local and national, to treat amazing armies with Blue Light Cards and Defence Discount Cards to give a special discount package that will help key workers to save a significant amount on our wedding gowns. This UK discount service has enlisted the help of retailers up and down the UK to ramp up its offers, discounts and freebies in an effort to say, ‘thank you’. The ‘special key worker bridal package’ offers free appointment service, a 25% off for wedding gowns from all collections including bespoke gowns and a £200 gift voucher towards a veil for all new orders.

Our special key worker bridal package will apply for all the Emergency Services, NHS and all Armed Forces, Veterans & Armed Forces community from Defence department, all key workers from delivery drivers to pharmacists.
