WK-Kiwi Washable Face Mask: Embroidered with Filter
Wasteless Kiwi’s Face Mask is the sensible way to be eco-friendly in a pandemic while protecting your well-being!
In line with our zero-waste values and our promotion of re-use over single-use, we set out to provide Kiwi’s and visitors to our shores with an eco-friendly reusable face mask. Our Wasteless-Kiwi Face Masks are remade in our workroom from a variety of rescued textile items, that would otherwise be destined for landfill. Each repurposed mask is individually handcrafted, using 3 specific layers of textile, in a precise combination providing a good degree of filtration against aerosol particles such as dust, air borne bacteria, virus and pollen (see here for further reading). As a bonus the inner layer provides a filter pocket opening which allows the wearer to insert an extra barrier: the specialised HELIX.iso™ filter system that cuts out over 99% of small particles and droplets that carry viruses and bacteria.
Each Wasteless-Kiwi Face Mask is supplied with one complimentary replaceable HELIX.iso™ wool-based filter.
Owing to the finite availability, of each rescued cloth, the actual colour and appearance of each mask may vary (slightly) from the item pictured.
