As a group of individuals who have had to wear masks due to air pollution, we were all too familiar with the inconvenience and discomfort of regular mask usage. Originally having to rely on n95 masks to filter our air pollutants from the constant hazy air we were getting, the ongoing pandemic brought forth a more urgent need for a mask that is comfortable. The pandemic gave us the realization that protective face masks had to be produced sustainably, much like the clothes that we wear.
This has necessitated the development of a reusable cloth face mask that would now become the new norm, a part of our daily attire.
airMask was thus born. A mask that is reusable and able to protect us from air pollution, viruses from infected water droplets and yet remain comfortable to wear on a regular basis.
