Mask up with a pattern from Cooper Hewitt's collection! This protective mask is made of 2 layers of 100% cotton and a removable 5-layered PM2.5 activated carbon filter with two layers of melt-blown polypropylene. The mask adapts to different head sizes with adjustable straps and features an integrated metal nose-piece to ensure a snug fit.
This pattern is based on a bògòlanfini textile from Mali shown in the exhibit Willi Smith: Street Couture.
