Members of Ballyphehane/Togher Art + Craft Initiative also participated in the project, and as a voluntary collective designed and produced a significant number of layettes, as a deceased infant’s first and last amuletic robe. These tiny white sets were donated to maternity hospitals nationally.

Additionally coffin wraps were also produced for the maternity unit in Waterford Regional Hospital.
