I am writing to share with you our perspective on the role Matouk can play in the lives of our employees, our country, and our customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our team at Matouk is comprised of a wide range of individuals who are committed to creating the world’s most beautiful collection of bed and bath linens. Many of our fine people are artisans working at our unique and enlightened factory in Fall River, Massachusetts, where we still produce over half of everything that we sell. Throughout the current crisis, we have gone to great lengths to protect our team and keep them healthy. We have allowed all administrative employees to work from home and for our production team, we have created a supremely hygienic environment that follows the strictest social distancing standards.
As long as we are permitted to do so, we intend to use our domestic production resources to contribute to our country’s response to the oncoming health crisis. We have committed to supplying local hospitals and relief agencies with free bed and bath linens to furnish as many emergency hospital and shelter beds as we are physically able to do. Further, we are actively exploring how we can retrofit our production process to produce reusable sanitary masks and other urgently needed Personal Protective Equipment.
While we operate in this manner, we hope that you will not mind if we occasionally email you about Matouk items that we hope can enhance your feeling of comfort and security in your own homes. Your support of Matouk throughout the crisis will help support our own efforts to give back to our community as we all endeavor to overcome COVID-19 and then strive to create a safer, healthier and more sustainable world around us.
On behalf of everyone at Matouk,
George Matouk, Jr.
