A famous French haute couture house, Christian Dior, said on Tuesday that one of its units has started to produce masks for workers in supermarkets and other sectors that are still operating during the outbreak of the Corona virus.
Dior, owned by LVMH, will produce protective equipment at a factory in Brittany, northern France, usually producing high-end children’s clothing, but volunteers will do the work.
All other Dior production sites had been closed.
The house said that the muzzles will be donated to workers in key jobs such as transportation or food distribution.
The brand did not disclose its production capacity.
