Surat: Surat-based Fashion Design Development Centre Fashionova has developed the world’s first personal protective equipment (PPE) kit ‘COVID Nari Kavach’ that can be worn on a saree. The kit has been approved by Sitra.

Speaking on this innovation Ankita Goyal, Director, Fashionova, said, “The PPE kits currently offered to our Corona warriors cannot be worn on sarees whereas many women health professional prefer to wear saree.

Twitter handle ‘Mann Ki Baat Updates’ posted an update on this innovation, which was retweeted by Smriti Irani.

‘Fashionova’ is the first-of-its-kind Design Development Centre in the Textile City Surat. It provides its associates with a strong platform to showcase their creativity and innovations. It is a budding start-up making all possible efforts to provide help in these tough times.

Earlier Fashionova had provided garments to Surat’s Civil Hospital for COVID-19 patients.
