How are these masks sustainable?
Well, initially we have purchased the fabric with the intentions of making a new Kaffetech polo. When the pandemic hit, we saw there is a more immediate need for face masks, and thus, we made face mask covers.
Kaffetech fabric has anti-odor properties, which makes it one of the best materials for face mask covers. It can help prevent bad odor after a long day of usage. We still suggest that you wash your face mask cover after a full day of use.
Face masks covers can allow medical grade face masks to be reusable for up to 2-3 days more, which is especially crucial during times when face masks are experiencing heavy manufacturing shortage. Directly reusing face masks would cost the bacterial filtration to be much less effective, so we suggest you to fully utilize these face mask covers if you want to save on throwing away face masks on the daily.
After we made these face mask covers, we donated a huge portion to local hospitals to help combat face mask shortages in Taiwan. Now, as Taiwan has effectively contained local spread of COVID-19, we want to share these face mask covers with you, as well.
We urge you to wear face masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The disease spreads from people to people via respiratory droplets, and these droplets are airborne from when you talk, sneeze, shout, cough, or even sing. As unsanitary as that already sounds, droplets can easily land in the mouths of those near you or they can easily breathe these droplets in. Mask wearing can create a simple barrier to protect others and yourself.

Seersucker was first introduced to the western world through British colonies in the late 19th century. It was written as Sirsakar in Hindi, which means Milk and Sugar. Soon, it’s brought into the United States by colonial trader and became popular. At first, seersucker was made for workwear. Until the early 20th century, different products began to appear in menswear. It was worn by workers in factories and celebrities who took it to high-end places. This is an important evolution of seersucker development.
