Emerald International, a manufacturer of menswear, donated PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to the medical teams on the frontlines recently.

The PPE, developed by Emerald International in keeping with international tech protocols for protective gear, were manufactured using internationally recognised quality material.Comprising gowns and headgear, they were designed to ensure comfort, durability and protection.

It was also the occasion for the launch of Emerald International’s premium grade NMRA (National Medicines Regulatory Authority)-approved ‘Protect by Emerald’ face masks. The masks were developed, using Emerald’s expertise and know-how acquired over 60 years in the market as a manufacturer of menswear.

The face masks are made using five-ply reusable fabric with a BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency) of 98%. The masks are equipped with a water repellent outer layer along with an inner layer made of vapour absorbing fabric that takes the moisture away from the body. Hence, the masks, classed as water repellent and breathable are designed to fit the facial structure with a comfortable 3D shape devised evenly to minimise voice distortion.

Emerald International also feted Dr. Anil Jasinghe for his exceptional commitment towards the fight against Covid-19. Dr. Jasinghe was gifted with the ‘ThePerfect Shirt’ by Emraan Mohamed, Marketing Manager of Emerald International.
