Our story

Our mission is to quickly supply better masks in the fight against COVID-19.

We’ve all been perplexed by the shortage of safe personal protective equipment available at a time when hospitals are in dire need. Each of us has a relative, partner, or friend working on the front-lines, and we couldn’t just sit by idle. So, we had to fix the mask.
