Open Source Medical Supplies: Sewing Change, The Iris Luckhaus Story" by John Kalil

Open Source Medical Supplies is my favourite international mask making group, as there are specialists from such a wide variety of fields, helping each other and the volunteers. I have been posting and discussing my hybrid mask pattern there, helped countless volunteers to sew it and was thankful to learn about material studies and neat sewing tricks! When John Kalil asked to intervíew me for their site, I jumped right in – and now, his article is online!

»The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged experts across a number of industries to use their skills and resources to address needs in their communities. (…) Luckhaus, a German illustrator, stylist, and designer based in Wuppertal and Berlin, exemplifies exactly this. Her background in clothes design and pattern making allowed her to change the course of emergency mask production throughout the rest of the world.

For the past few years, Luckhaus primarily worked as an illustrator, graphic designer, and writer, creating catchy advertising, beautiful books, and scientific infographics.  But after learning about the shortage of masks at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, Luckhaus dusted off her sewing machine and got to work, planning to sew masks for her family and friends.  She initially tried the existing designs but found them unsatisfactory, time-consuming, and often impractical.  (…) Taking matters into her own hands, Luckhaus used her pattern making skills to create an entirely new type of mask.  On her very first attempt, she struck gold.«

To read on, please visit the Open Open Source Medical Supplies website! Thank you to John Kalil for the lovely artivle, and to Devon Rowland for publishing it and representing that very special spirit of OMS so well! <3
