Single Mouthmask PROUD (Equalty)
The Gay Issue and designer Rodrigo Otazu join forces to increase tolerance
Recently, we have been seeing more and more news items about declining tolerance regarding the gay community. For The Gay Issue (TGI) and designer Rodrigo Otazu this was a reason to join forces to increase tolerance.
Rodrigo Otazu who now operates under the name Mr. O and currently lives in New York, designed two sets of four face masks with the theme LOVE IS LOVE. One with a clear Mr. O signature named Fabulous and one with a wink to the gay community and tolerance with the name Proud.
In order to create wide support and make a contribution to society, the majority of the profit will go to a good cause. Amnesty International is dedicated to protecting human rights all over the world. Amnesty supports local organizations and activists that stand up for gay rights in their country.
The face masks are manufactured from a special fabric called Evolon® and produced by Textiles and More, which is situated in the Netherlands. The face masks are washable at a minimum temperature of 60˚C. Even after many washes, the print retains its quality and appearance. The filtration efficiency of the face masks has been tested at TNO. Based on these tests, the face masks meet the filtration efficiency of the material in accordance with the material of type IIR Surgical reference masks. The face masks have a filtration efficiency of at least 95% against particles that are spread through the air. The anti-allergic composition is a natural barrier against smog, bacteria, pollen and other allergens. The dense texture of microfiber has great air permeability and drains fluids under the mask. The material is non-woven, very comfortable, breathable, and soft.
The face masks are one-size-fits-all.
