When the corona pandemic hit, this master tailor went from producing high-end bespoke suits to custom-made masks.

Yosel Tiefenbrun honed his craft on London’s world-renown Savile Row, creating one-of-a-kind suits.

Tiefenbraun was trained as a rabbi before turning his attention to high-end menswear, eventually opening up his own atelier in New York where he creates tuxedos, suits, and custom coats that sell for thousands of dollars.

When the coronavirus crisis struck, Tiefenbraun switched gears, re-purposing the luxury fabrics he usually uses for bespoke suits to craft high-quality COVID-19 face masks.
