Surat-based fashion design development centre Fashionova has designed the world's first personal protective equipment (PPE) kit ‘Kovid Nari Kavach’ that can be worn on a sari. The kit has been approved by the South India Textile Research Association (SITRA)—recognised by the Indian government as a laboratory for testing PPE coveralls for COVID-19 protection.

“The PPE kits currently offered to our corona warriors cannot be worn of sari while many women health professionals prefer to wear sari. Recently, the Kerala government made it mandatory for COVID care staff to wear t-shirt or shirt and that has created trouble for women staff. Given this situation, fashion designers at Fashionova Saurav Mandal decided to develop PPE kits that can be worn on a sari. Currently, the design centre is producing 5,000 PPE kits daily,” said Fashionova director Anupam Goyal.

Fashionova's designing of Kovid Nari Kavaach has been posted by ‘Mann KI Baat Updates’ on its twitter handle, and it has been retweeted by Union textiles minister Smriti Irani, Goyal said.

"Fashionova is the first-of-its-kind design development centre in the textile city Surat. It provides its associates a strong platform to showcase their creativity by promoting it to the fullest and providing them the market assistance they need. It is a budding start-up making all possible efforts to help in these trying times," Goyal added.

Earlier, Fashionova had provided garments to Surat’s Civil Hospital for corona patients.
