Wearing face protection mitigates the spread of COVID-19. There are a few hindrances to a widespread adoption of such protection.
General use respirator face masks don't: look very good, fit very well, or maintain air-tight effectiveness.
- recycled 100% cotton fabrics from past collections at A.Oei Studio--jerseys and twills (machine washable) ideal for particle filtration and comfort;
- included elastic where necessary, for durability; and,
- most importantly, applied a good deal of care addressing the problem of how the bridge of the nose creates an air gap under the eyes: sewn-in metal strips, encased in batting, and foam-ended.
The end result is good air and better vibes. BuenosAires.
Each mask is handmade, produced in small batches. Suggested per-mask donation: $15-$25. If you're within walking distance to Capitol Hill Station (Seattle) you can pick one up in person; if not, we'll ship it to you.
