What is MASK ASSEMBLY?

The production of quality PPE for frontline workers, hospitals and at-risk communities. Our partnerships with the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research and our network of garment and textile manufacturers, studios and artisans to ensure quality and reach to where it matters most.

In Partnership with NIMR

We have partnered with the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR) to provide clinical sterilization of every single face mask produced.

Our partnerships also ensure ethically sourced sustainable materials, adopting global HSE standards and creating wealth within our local communities.

Why?

Nigeria and Africa currently has a shortage of PPE especially standard/disposable masks due to both global demand and supply chain issues.

According to the CDC and NCDC, cloth masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted.

Design and local manufacturing are uniquely positioned to take on this call to action.

With have developed standards and processes to ensure our PPE meets the highest quality standards and ethical practices. We focus on driving operational excellence at the factory level, reducing waste and steadily increasing efficiency.

This response also helps to build the resilience of solo entrepreneurs and independent makers struggling to survive and the young people and women who are currently out of work due to the rippling effects of the pandemic. We believe the creation of stable employment, is an incredibly powerful driver of sustainable change.

About Us

Founded in 2016, The Assembly is Nigeria’s leading creative hub, that focuses on empowering creative talent, building capacity and entrepreneurship in Nigeria’s fashion and design sector.

ETHICAL COMMITMENT
We believe compliance should be a process of continuous and sustainable improvement, not an exercise in tick boxes and one-off audits. For us, compliance is only the starting point. We are developing our hub factory to sustainably implement living wages, benefits, and empowerment programs. It’s the right thing to do, and it’s also good for business - leading to lower staff turnover, reduced absenteeism, and better productivity.

MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT
The Assembly has zero tolerance for any form of forced labor. In accordance with the UK Modern Slavery Act, we have developed a formal statement specifying our commitment to implementing and monitoring policies, procedures and continuous training in our hub factory.
