The donning of masks and other personal protective gear has quickly increased as governments seek to slow the spread of COVID-19, and in an effort to create a superior mask, smart textile makers Myant has crafted a new antiviral and antibacterial mask knitted from copper and silver yarns. The startup is aiming to design a revolutionary line of personal protective equipment (PPE) to assist in combating future pandemics.
Moreover, the new PPE series is comfortable and reusable, meaning that individuals could wear them for long periods of time and over-and-over again, to ensure shortages in the future are reduced. The masks are available in various styles depending on personal preference and range from ENdura Mask to Flex Mask, among others.
