New research on face covering just released!
Research released this month has tested the effectiveness of fabric reusable face masks against single use ones and found the fabric multi layered ones perform better.
'Overall, our study suggests that cloth face coverings, especially with multiple layers, may help reduce droplet transmission of respiratory infections. Furthermore, face coverings made from biodegradable fabrics such as cotton allow washing and reusing, and can help reduce the adverse environmental effects of widespread use of commercial disposable and non-biodegradable facemasks.'
Our triple layered face coverings are made from high quality soft cotton with a dense interfacing layer which makes them both breathable and reusable.
They have proved so popular we have completely sold out of several lines and have just added 2 new designs a fabulous Dutch Chintz and Rose Garden.

Jacwicks founder Ruth Jacobs talks to Melanie Cant of Elm Marketing
When you are running a business its always important to connect with a network that's on your wave length and contains other members that help and support each other. Its never been so important as it is now and I'm proud to be a member of the Do Business Network (DBN or Derwentside Business Network).
The team there have worked tirelessly to provide help, support and training during lockdown. They continuously engage with their members and find new ways to promote their businesses to the network and beyond.
Part of this process involves members Podcasts and I was lucky enough to be asked to speak to Melanie Cant from Elm Marketing, about how and why I set up Jacwicks Designs. Hear how the name Jacwicks came about, how I work with a local charity Just for Women and the way that the 'Finding your Tribe' moment happened.

It's been a great project to be part of, I've loved telling my story and receiving listeners feedback.
Pull up a Perch and a coffee and have a listen, I hope you enjoy it.
