Mask republic is our attempt to help. Our vision: create a re-usable, washable mask that protects effectively, looks good and is highly breathable. We wanted to make it here in Vienna and provide work to our community.
We've found an extraordinary partner in Borealis who has had the courage and vision to follow us on this crazy journey. For mask republic, they decided to launch the production of a high-tech melt-blown filter on their R&D line.
Yes, exactly the same kind of filter that you find in surgical masks. We then let the best tailors in Vienna sew these filters directly into the best cotton fabric available.
The result: 4x time filtration than regular DIY fabric masks (tested in Borealis laboratory) and high breath-ability, work for small business owners and a much need touch of design and colour on your face.
We have now released two new patterns with a new "around the ear" ribbon.
As part of this initiative, for every 3 masks that are sold, we donate 1 extra to those in need in the local community, from schools to care homes, and many more who need it.
Paula from the fulfillment team and myself are smiling at you
