Altid Sammen Face Mask - Charity for Recreativo dos Anjos (RDA)
This dual layer cloth mask was hand printed and handmade by Siroco in Lisbon, Portugal. It's made of 100% unbleached cotton canvas printed with water-based ink. The lining is made of 100% cotton veil, hand-dyed with tea leaves.
The pattern was created by Hvass&Hannibal for the Altid Sammen album by Efterklang.
All of Efterklang’s sales proceeds will be donated to Recreativo dos Anjos (RDA), a social center in Lisbon. RDA is a nonprofit space that has existed in Lisbon since 2010. Right from the beginning of the Covid crisis, RDA set up a solidarity canteen which operated between April and September 2020, serving about 150 fresh meals free every day. Since September, this activity has evolved into a community kitchen called the "esplanada comunitária." Every day, a kitchen is set up in front of the RDA space, where anyone can come and cook with ingredients donated to or purchased by RDA. Besides the kitchen, people have free access to washing machines, showers, electricity, the Internet, etc., as well as help in their administrative or legal procedures. RDA is funded entirely by donations and, in the midst of a global crisis, it's getting more and more difficult not only to obtain funding but above all to meet the needs of growing numbers of destitute people. Restrictions due to the pandemic, combined with the approaching winter, are also posing new challenges in terms of providing safe, comfortable surroundings. Accordingly, RDA has decided to invest in a modular awning over its outside area, which will allow for smoother adaptation to the constantly changing situation.
