The Rosset Group is mobilizing to help communities in need across Brazil during the COVID-19 crisis, pivoting its manufacturing operations to produce protective face masks made with LYCRA® fiber.

Giving back to the community

The largest textile group in Latin America is temporarily repurposing some of its production lines to make fabric masks for donation to underprivileged communities, as well as to employees (and their families) at its 14 manufacturing facilities. When stores reopen, more masks will be donated to retailers to keep shoppers and staff members safe.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have taken the decision to change the functioning of our factories, replacing programmed demands by making thousands of masks to serve and help communities in need"

Supporting essential workers

Rosset also is producing white t-shirts for Brazil's Federal Council of Nursing (COFEN) to distribute to healthcare workers in São Paulo, the state with the country’s highest number of COVID-19 cases.

"With the scarcity of protection items in the fight against COVID-19, we, in partnership with COFEN, will produce white t-shirts for nurses who are on the front lines at this moment. We believe that if each one does his part; the impacts will be minimized.”
