Help control the spread of the virus with this washable mask.
Following the production of its facial masks for the hospital community back in April, New Balance‘s COVID-19 mask is now available for the public to purchase. The piece comes in a navy blue colorway and is constructed out of nylon tricot, polyurethane and polyester material.
Additional features include the shoelace-inspired straps that wrap around the head, and the moldable nose clip that can be adjusted according to the user’s preference. Despite its “Single Use Only” label, the non-surgical mask is washable in accordance to its care instructions: “Machine Wash Cold with like colors – Delicate/Gentle Cycle. Tumble Dry Low – Delicate/Gentle Cycle. Do Not Bleach. Do Not Iron.”
The mask is currently sold out on YCMC, but you can get your hands on one via Oneness starting at $10 USD. In related news, a Japanese company is developing a “smart mask” that can translate conversations.
