In these unprecedented times, Airhole has reflected on how we can contribute to our community. We believe our knowledge of facemasks can help. With the recommendation of government agencies and organizations to wear a fabric mask to help reduce the spread of viruses, we see this as an opportunity to support this iniative. As a facemask brand, we felt it was our duty to provide face protection, pivoting from production of our winter products to manufacturing our Daily Facemasks for immediate release. It is important to protect those at risk and we will be donating masks to directly to those in need throughout the world, starting with our local communities in Vancouver, B.C. and Los Angeles, CA. Our Daily masks are reusable and they should be washed after being worn. You don’t re-wear your dirty socks, so why would you re-wear your dirty mask. While the purpose is to reduce the spread of viruses, this mask is not a replacement for medical grade Personal Protective Equipment, and is not intended to replace other recommended measures to stop the community spread of any virus. Please continue to practice social distancing, washing your hands and refraining from touching your face. We have designed our masks based on CDC guidelines, using three layers of fabric. Woven fine denier cotton is recommended for it’s tightly woven fibers, increasing the chances of blocking particles. We use this on both the outer and inner layers of the mask. Sandwiched between these two layers is a non-woven textile called Polyproylene - a thermoplastic polymer. - used commonly to manu facture surgical face masks. Advantages of non-woven fabrics over woven fabric in filtration are higher air permeability and higher bacterial filtration efficiency. Airhole has lost the hole (on these select styels) for a good reason.
