Meet Koko Kay, a Kenyan lady based in Frankfurt – Germany who has carved a niche for herself in saturated market with her unique simple and disposable face-mask design to ward off the deadly Coronavirus .
Koko is a trained financial expert.
The partial-lockdown at work in Frankfurt provided her with ample time to sew fashionable and reusable facemasks using the knowledge she acquired in Home Science in school.
Koko says she solely produces 80 pieces of different classic designs of protective facemasks a day. The demand for her designer facemasks went so high that she had to ask her family members living in the Netherlands to join in to boost production and supply to different parts of Europe and beyond online.
Dubbed Ten Covidmasks, Koko says the masks are made with four layers of carefully selected cotton fabrics for men, women and children of different age groups.
Their selling point is that they are reusable after washing, making them economical.
