During the Corona virus lockdown I have been making masks fashioned from double layered 100% silk twill from Frances Nutt London pocket squares. They have an internal pocket in which you can add additional layers of disposable filter material if desired.
Each one is made at home by me using my grandmother’s Singer sowing machine and hand finished. Beauty and Safety. Washable & Reusable.
An elegant caring gift item for family and friends.
Bespoke possible features – plain elastic or covered ruched elastic straps and a coordinating pouch to keep the mask clean whilst carrying in your bag.
Please note these masks are not medically certified and are not a suitable replacement for any medical grade Personal Protective Equipment. The mask does not provide any guaranteed protection against COVID-19 and is not intended to replace other safety measures and guidelines as advised by The World Health Organization.
Wearing a mask to cover your mouth and nose in enclosed public places can reduce the danger of droplet infection and the spread of germs providing protection for you and others whether you are commuting or visiting the grocery shop.
THE STORY OF MEANWHILE GARDENS
A community garden built on former derelict land in 1976
Home to the Metronomes Steel Pan Orchestra since 1989
Aswad’s Live and Direct concert/album recorded at Meanwhile Gardens
Over 50 different species of trees.
Kensington & Chelsea MIND Wildlife Garden Project
Jamie McCollough the artist, engineer and visionary struggled to get all the permissions, paperwork and money to transform this derelict, fenced-in land into a garden for the whole community. Grudgingly, the council – the owner – said that they had no current plans for the plot. This was 1976, the year of our bail-out from the IMF, of black-outs, of rising inflation and unemployment. It was a period of national hopelessness, and the area around Meanwhile was, as it is today, one of the poorest in the country. The council said that they might want to do something with the land in the future, but meanwhile, Jamie might as well go ahead. He brought people around a common vision. They worked to transform something derelict into something cherished and called it “Meanwhile Gardens”

#MeanwhileGardens was my daily dawn walk during spring 2020 #Lockdown1 It is the nearest green space to where I live and is also a mental health garden cared for by Scope. Most plants and trees are also labelled with their name. The paisley pattern is made from an oak leaf surrounded by spring hawthorn flowers. Other herbs and flowers pictured on the scarves are #Alkanet #WildGarlic #SolomonsSeal #Nettle #Periwinkle
It is located at the foot of #ErnoGoldfinger’s #TrellickTower
