DSPTCH, a company known for their technical bags and camera accessories, has shifted their focus towards creating an in-house designed Face Covering amidst COVID-19.
The brand announced via their Instagram account that comfort and sustainability were key design focus points, as the mask they've created is made from 100% cotton ripstop lined with cotton muslin and can be washed and re-used. The elastic bandana-style strap fastener makes it easy to adjust the fit and utilizes parts already found on popular DSPTCH bags and accessories.
Currently a Medium size option is available online to purchase for $36. The company plans to release a Small/Youth size and Large size next week. A straps accessory is also available for $12, it attaches to ear loop style masks to add adjustability. DSPTCH has pledged to donate 100% of the proceeds to charities in the Bay Area that will help aid those in need during these difficult times. In related news, custom mask creator Zhijun Wang released a mask template online for everyone to create their own protective masks.
