We are building on the vast knowledge of the international community making open-source personal protective equipment. You can download instructions and blueprints below.
Pattern originally developed by Stockholm Makerspace. At Blivande, we are able to produce around 350 of these gowns per day.
- Pattern for gown production, on A4 sheets (Swedish) (English)
- Step by step instructions for gown production (English) (French) (Arabic) (Spanish)
Below is an instruction video from Stockholm Makerspace, who came up with the design. We have slightly modified their protocol, but this also works well.
We think that this design and production method can be very valuable for use in other countries hit later by the pandemic. Since the materials are cheap, and no special equipment is needed, this should be possible even in regions with severe material restrictions. We would be more than happy to help you set up a gown production facility in your home country. If you have any questions, make a comment in our forum and we will try out best to help you get started.
