Full Turn Custom Apparel and Blue Frog Embroidery have collaborated on this DistanZ Mask project. When our local Government issued a “shelter in place order” we were forced to close our business on March 17th. Upon reflection, we quickly realized we had the materials and talent needed to help solve the immediate need of health masks.
On March 18th, with the approval of our local Police, we became an essential business by re-purposing our luxury apparel fabrics and utilizing the Bluefrog sewing talent to produce the DistanZ Health Mask.
We learned much along the way by drawing patterns, cutting fabric and sewing all by hand. As we wanted to produce a high quality product, the patterns were designed to include a hidden pocket where a high tec filter called a “non woven, melt blown PM 2.5 filter is located. With the hidden pocket those filters can be replaced after washing the mask itself creating a health mask that can last.
We are proud to have the opportunity to help those in need during the Covid-19 crisis and proud to now bring these high quality health masks to you. Enjoy your DistanZ Mask and stay well!
