Hand-embroidered masks during COVID-19

The most effective weapon in the war on COVID-19 is face masks. 

Paying attention to the market demand, Nguyen Thi Xuan Kieu living in Ho Chi Minh City came up with the idea of turning plain fabric masks into more eye-catching but comfortable embroidery masks. Many young people consider this kind of mask as a suitable gift for relatives and friends.
