Rothy’s, a very popular San Francisco-based footwear company, launched the Open Innovation Coalition. It is an initiative to unite like-minded brands and share resources to better support Covid 19 relief efforts as a collective group. Rothy’s open-sourced their mask-making knowledge with fellow manufacturers who are interested in producing similar items. A few or their partners include incredible brands like ThirdLove, Marine Layer and Lucky Brand.
As they are getting ready to produce masks, Rothy’s is donating 5 disposable, non- medical masks for every item sold.
