Origami masks are handmade in San Francisco with ethically sourced materials that are both zero-waste and sustainable. The masks are free of harsh, toxic materials like plastic, elastic, and metal, making them extra durable for hot wash and dry cycles. In addition to their green design, they are 100% biodegradable and compostable. After prototyping over 25 different cotton mask variations, the designer selected the most efficient design to mass produce as well as the easiest for people to sew at home. The mask pattern was immediately made available for free online and has since been downloaded over 7 million times from around the world. The mask was noted by USA Todayas one of the top 10 masks of 2020.
