Due to ongoing pandemics in the fight with joint trials against the spread of the virus, there is a great need for effective protective equipment. As a PhD fashion designer and course leader for the fashion design education at Inredningsakademin in Stockholm, i have used my expertise in the textile industry to create a product that not only meets demand, but who also take into account the sustainability perspective linked to high quality requirements from their own manufacturing in the factory in the EU.
My external analysis and studies have contributed to the attached proposal of specific material and design that can offer altered effective protection. The products have also been the subject of dialogue with the Swedish Work Environment Authority, the Medical Products Agency and RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden AB). The result has been concretized with 2 types of protector masks.
• A model with replaceable filter BLACK MEDICAL FACE MASK
• A model that is right for healthcare staff and patients, WHITE RESPIRATOR MASK.
Both are manufactured in the EU (Romania), assuring flexibility in production and fast deliveries to Sweden and to intermediaries, agents or customs handling for other countries.

BLACK MEDICAL FACE MASK
Description & Protection level​​​​​​​
A stylish and flexible reusable face mask which assures an extra effective protection by its replaceable filter, added to the backside. The product is classified as a medical (surgical) mask, following the requirements and test methods of European standards SS-EN 14683:2019+AC:2019, type 2/BFE2 with a bacterial filtration efficiency of over 98%.
Surgical masks are tested in the direction of exhalation (from inside to outside).
Prevents droplets of saliva or secretions from the upper respiratory tract when the wearer exhales. If worn by the caregiver, the surgical mask protects the patient and his or her environment (air, surfaces, equipment, surgical site). If worn by a contagious patient, it prevents the patient from contaminating his or her surroundings and environment.
Protects the wearer from infection transmitted by “droplets” or from the risk of splashes of biological fluids. From this reason the extra filter of BLACK MEDICAL FACE MASK, as well as the filling have a waterproof layer. “Medical/Surgical” masks can be used in different fields: Surgery, Dentistry, Other medical procedures, In the case of isolation

• Replaceable filter - nonwoven material - 3 layers of meltblown polypropylene PP.
• The material is TUV Rheinland certificated and tested as antiallergic, antiviral, antibacterial, anti mould, antistatic and is used in their manufactured products of brands such as Bosch, Philips, Rowenta, Daewoo, Miele, Electrolux.
• CE- certificated waterproof textile technology: TexGuard Quality
Care Instructions
For cleaning/sterilizing the mask can be used several methods:
• washing gentle by hand with hot water, soap or detergent.
• sterilizing in hot water-temperature 90°C during 1 min.
• keeping the mask on a metal sieve over a pot with boiling water.
• put the mask on the grid in the middle of the oven and keep it 30* min at a temperature of 70°C.
After you have worn your mask is recommended it to clean it or sterilize it directly or to keep it inside a plastic bag at least 6 hours until you will use it again.
WHITE RESPIRATOR MASK
Decription & Protection level
The WHITE RESPIRATOR MASK is a reusable respirator mask with a high level of protection classified as FFP2 mask according with the requirements and tests methods of European standards SS-EN 149+A1:2009.​​​​​​​
A FFP2 mask has minimum 94% filtration percentage and maximum 8% leakage to the inside; It is mainly used in construction, agriculture, the pharmaceutical industry and by healthcare professionals against influenza viruses or respiratory illnesses such as avian flu, SARS, pneumonic plague, tuberculosis and most recently the new coronavirus.
The WHITE RESPIRATOR MASK can be used in healthcare because of the intensive filtration provided by the material - a double nonwoven needle filter in three layers, but also because of the compact design which uses origami as a confectionery technique; this means the model has no cut / sewn seams, being able to assure a strong sustainability and protection against pathogens, in a contaminated environment.
The face is covered to the eyes and down the neckline under the chin. An elastic band (6 cm) adjusts the mask over the nose adapting to the shape of the face. The mask has a soft and comfortable texture and fit, and it is deep enough to offer unobstructed breathing during many hours of work in healthcare.
