“In order to provide protective gear to healthcare workers, Louis Vuitton has repurposed several of the maison’s ateliers across France to produce hundreds of thousands of non-surgical face masks,” the brand announced on its Instagram account. “In partnership with the Mode Grande Ouest textile network, this initiative will donate the much-needed protective gear to frontline healthcare workers. Thank you to the hundreds of artisans who have volunteered to create these masks, as well as everyone doing their part to fight this global pandemic.”

The house has re-opened its ready-to-wear atelier located on Paris’ rue du Pont Neuf, home to Louis Vuitton’s headquarters, in order to produce hospital gowns. These gowns will be provided to frontline workers in six Parisian hospitals, who are taking care of patients suffering from Covid-19.

“We are proud to be able to help healthcare professionals at our level and put our know-how at the disposal of the Hôpitaux de Paris to create gowns for medical staff,” Burke said in a press release. “I would like to thank the artisans of our atelier who voluntarily participate in this civic act and who have been bravely applying themselves since this morning to equip healthcare workers in hospitals who are in need of gowns.”
