We sampled seven designs before successfully mastering and releasing our tailored-fit facemasks in three sizes. Our first release mask met the mask shortage need but wasted too much fabric in the cutting process due to the curved design. To us, design is just as much about the aesthetic as it is the impact and function, so we reworked our vision, then designed our own pattern to meet wearability and sustainability needs equally, without compromise. We created a low-waste pattern which tessellates on the fabric – dramatically cutting down fabric waste and in the process – we created an exceptional fit too.
Our face masks are Australian designed, Australian made, ethical, sustainable, made with natural fabrics
Our face masks are Australian designed, Australian made, ethical, sustainable, made with natural fabrics, they’re vegan-friendly, plastic-free, elastic-free, synthetic-free, washable, reusable, biodegradable and reversible. Our masks are designed for circularity too; made from 100% of the same fibre (cotton), allowing them to be recycled, reused, or biodegraded (remove the timber toggle, pop in the worm farm or fabric shredder, and that’s it). We’ve created a premium product for an immediate need in the most sustainable way. Our facemasks are tailored with darts which can be fitted at either the nose or the chin to suit a range of faces, and they’re crafted for longevity with reinforced inner seams, triple-threaded ear loops, and triple-stitched side seams. They fuse fashion and function; they enable Australians to abide by mask rules and protect themselves and each other while still being able to express a sense of style, and retain their sustainability values.
