But are the COVID-safe?
A London-based designer is desperate to get their hands on some human skin so they can make “Leather face” masks after a previous partnership with a bariatric surgery clinic fell through. The designer says they have an order to fulfill for a private collector, and is willing to pay a legitimate supplier £10,000 for 10lbs of skin.
The designer says in her job request that she is desperate to get her hands on 10lbs of human skin, which she plans to make into masks for one of her private clients after a previous partnership with a bariatric clinic “fell through at the last minute”. The professional, who has chosen to remain anonymous, has £10,000 for the skin, and would like to make contact with any suppliers by November 9th.

A sewport spokesperson said,
“We’ve had some bizarre and quirky requests come through the platform in the past, but this one has to take the crown! After speaking with the designer it’s obvious that she’s incredibly passionate about her art, and although it might be a little stomach curdling, it’s all above board.
“We’re not here to judge, our role in this is to help this designer fulfill her order, and the way we can help, and what has proven effective in the past, is to make her request public. I urge anyone who’s recently undergone weight loss surgery, or any clinic that has the right to donate skin, to get in touch – you never know someone might love the idea of their tummy skin being worn as a scary mask!”
