A Virtual Exhibition of COVID-19 Face Masks from Around the World

Monogram Tapestry Bandana Mask

Louis Vuitton redirected its global manufacturing in April 2020 to create face masks, which they distributed for free to healthcare professionals, retirement homes, and organisations most severely affected by COVID-19. In November 2020, Louis Vuitton produced their own upscale retail version for £350, which included a monogram bandana contained within a drawstring pouch.
