Samantha Cameron has launched a sustainable non-medical face covering under her fashion brand Cefinn.

The label - founded by the former British Prime Minister’s wife in 2017 - has collaborated with the Daily Dress Edit to create a face mask, and all proceeds will go towards the Intensive Care Society.

The label announced the news on its Instagram account, alongside a photo of the 49-year-old wearing the face mask with the matching dress from her brand.

The post read: “We are so thrilled that our friend @isabelspearman // @dailydressedit asked us to produce face masks to sell in order to support the Intensive Care Society. 

“@ics_updates provide essential resources and psychological support directly to the brave ICU staff across the UK to help them overcome the impact of Covid and prevent any trauma.

“The masks have been made sustainably from existing fabrics, and are made in our best-selling Leopard Pansy print. Made from 100% silk, all profits from these masks will be donated to the ICS.”

In just a few hours the post has already racked up hundreds of likes on the photo-sharing site, and social media users are already gushing over the product.

One commented: “How fab”, while another added: “So pretty.”

Cefinn’s face mask is made from existing fabric, which is their bestselling Leopard Pansy print.

The masks are 100% silk, and boast a blue and black animal pattern, which has been woven to ensure it is breathable yet protective for the wearer.

However, due to the fabric it is handwash only.

The Silk Face Mask’s retail for £25 from Cefinn, and are available to buy online now.

Cefinn is not the only retailer that has catered for people’s needs, as other stores, including Anthropologie, ASOS and Mango are among brands, which have created non-medical face masks during the coronavirus pandemic.
