COVID-19: ARE MASKS USEFUL?
We can help limit the spread of Covid-19 by wearing masks. However, be aware that masks do not protect you. What does protect you is to keep PHYSICAL/SOCIAL DISTANCING. That's why we made simple t-shirts with that reminder.
COVID-19: DO MASKS WORK BOTH WAYS?
Masks simply create a filter that limits the quantity of particles that go through the mask (either direction) and the distance they travel. This means that many of the particles that you emit through your mask will not reach a person standing at a normal distance from you. However, those particles emitted by them that make it through your mask, will go directly into your nose and mouth since there is no distance between your mask and your face. Therefore, wear your mask when needed, in order to limit the spread of the virus, but don't buy into a fake sense of safety that makes you disregard physical/social distancing.
COVID-19: WHAT IS THE BEST USE OF FABRIC MASKS?
The structure of denim is a very tight weave, which makes it very protective. Linen masks have great breathability. You can insert a double layer of paper-towel in the filter pocket to increase efficacy. Unfortunately, breathability and efficacy tend to be inversely proportional, so it's a matter of finding the right balance between the two. You may want different masks for different uses, for instance, one type of mask for your regular shopping and a different type for exercising. The weather will also make a difference. Our denim mask is more efficient but has less breathability, so you may want to use the denim in crowded spaces and the linen in less crowded situations.
