Our Story

In July 2019 Intimacy Director & Coordinator Yarit Dor approached Costume Designer Shoni Wilkinson to create a specialised intimacy/modesty garment kit for her to use on set and in theatre.  

As one of the UK's pioneers in Intimacy Coordination & Intimacy Direction, she found that the garments available to her and her colleagues just weren’t suitable for the job. Disposable, ill-fitting, limited in skin tone and size, Intimacy Professionals and Costume Departments needed a purpose-built garment that represented the industry's ethos. 

Intimask was created to fill this void. 

The development of action specific intimacy & modesty garments and INTIMASK Silicone Barriers provide support and protection to both the performers and the planet.

Our washable, reusable, purpose-built garments are made with the highest quality materials. They come in a range of 6 skin tones and sizes and many include our registered INTIMASK Silicone Barriers. 

ETHICAL STATEMENT

- All of our garments are designed and produced in the UK.

- We pay our employees above the "Real UK Living Wage", for more info visit https://www.livingwage.org.uk/

- Our fabric is produced in the UK by a leading textile company.

- All of our garments come packed in reusable, resealable, biodegradable bags and labels.

- We use environmentally responsible shipping options, offsetting the emissions from the transportation of our products.

- We are always on the look-out for eco-friendly stretch materials and textiles in order to help our planet. Until we find a more sustainable replacement it is important for us to raise awareness of methods that help reduce microplastics and waste in the performing arts & recorded media industries.

“The intimacy movement is such a powerful, positive force, we felt its tools should reflect that”
