The Saffron Stitch is a business started by someone with lived experience of detention who writes: ‘Without Refugee Tales and the GDWG from which it grew there would be no Saffron Stitch.’ Take a look at the very beautiful website.

If you have to enter a shop or enclosed space, you may wish to buy a face mask as the government recommends. If you need to use public transport, you may be looking for a suitable face covering. Look no further! Refugee Tales face masks are on sale with our logo on the fabric. They are beautiful quality with many other fabrics to choose from too. 

Masks have an outer 100% cotton layer and an inner layer of poplin used for NHS scrubs and face masks Oekotex approved. The fabric is 97% cotton, 3% elastane, washable and reusable. What’s more, 75p is donated to Refugee Tales and the work of GDWG with every Refugee Tales mask or other mask sold. 

It is also possible to donate to Greg, one of our GDWG trustees who is a Birthday Ambassador packing masks for us and burning the midnight oil to do it after his day job too… Here’s the link for your orders.
