Almost every fashion brand is selling masks right now. A huge portion are just mass-produced basic face mask design with their logos fashionably printed on it. So it is a good idea to know the common mistakes on face mask designs. Even though it’s not really medical grade, fabric masks are more than half a percent effective than the usual disposable surgical mask which is not bad. Our reasons for wearing masks could be purely aesthetic but we shouldn’t sacrifice other factors such as comfort, reusability & sustainability (not to mention safety & protection of course).
Mask production is not just done by the big international brands though. Local companies in Singapore also started making and selling their own cool face mask. Brands such as CYC, 1929 Mask and the batik-printed Baju mask are selling well. Not to mention our C+ Fabric Mask which is uniquely customised in house at Ark Industries and is a perfect face mask corporate gift.
