Making a virtue out of necessity - according to this motto, the company Hatico from Bavaria, known for its shirts, converted part of its production to make fashionable face masks under its brand Pure.
3000 Pure masks have already been produced from functional shirt fabric. The range includes various washable and reusable models, which stand out from other suppliers due to their fashionable fabrics with printed patterns.
ETERNA community face masks
ETERNA, one of the most popular shirt brands in our online shop, has also changed its production and now offers face masks and makeshift mouthguards in addition to ETERNA menswear and womenswear. There are 2 models on offer, one washable, re-usable model made of 100% cotton and one ETERNA respiratory mask made of 100% polypropylene with spunbonded fabric in FFP3 standard.
TRIGEMA mouth protection masks
TRIGEMA, the polo shirt and T-shirt manufacturer known for its consistent 100% Made in Germany strategy, was one of the first German textile companies to convert its production to washable, re-usable makeshift face masks. TRIGEMA produces two versions of a classic, white mouth mask made of 50% cotton / 50% polyester (2-ply). One variant has fabric straps as closure, which are tied behind the head. The other variant has elastic bands which fix the mask behind the head.
OLYMP community face masks
Our long-standing corporate fashion partner OLYMP is not yet offering OLYMP mouth protection masks for its extremely popular company shirts, blouses and polo shirts, in addition to TRIGEMA mouth protection masks, as of 21.4.2020. Should this change, we will of course also offer our customers OLYMP masks.
Van Laack community face masks
Who doesn't know the Van Laack premium shirts of the upper class from Mönchengladbach. Van Laack has also decided to convert part of its production capacity for the production of face masks. The Van Laack masks are made of 3-layer, 100% antibacterial cotton fabric. They impress above all with their high-quality and fashionable fabrics.
Seidensticker makeshift face masks
The traditional German brand Seidensticker from Bielefeld is now also producing mouth and nose masks with part of its own ultra-modern production facilities in Vietnam. The reusable masks are washable at 60 degrees and are made of 100% cotton.
Hugo Boss community face masks
Hugo Boss also wants to support with the production of makeshift face masks. As you could read on the company's facebook page, the Metzingen-based textile brand does not plan to produce and sell community masks for consumers. Instead, 180,000 washable, non-reusable face masks made of 100% cotton will be produced and donated to public institutions to help in the fight against Corona.
efixelle respiratory masks Made in Germany
The initiatives of the German textile industry to provide German private customers and authorities with masks aim at the production of textile mouth and nose masks, also called community
masks, in most of the efixelle medical respirator cases. Medical respiratory masks are withheld from qualified personnel in medical facilities. An exception in this respect are the masks from Efix Tricot in Hechingen, which are certified as medical products. Due to the cooperation with a Chinese membrane manufacturer, the reusable, washable efix respiratory protection masks are virus filtering in both directions, i.e. during inhalation and exhalation. This is because two external, air-permeable warp-knitted layers of the efix respirators cover the special, central virus membrane, which filters out a large proportion of the viruses when breathing in.
Stenströms community face masks at hemden.de
Stenströms, the traditional Swedish brand and shirt supplier of the Swedish royal family, also enters into the production of textile mouth and nose masks. The fabric is of the same high quality as the popular Stenströms premium shirts. As soon as they are available, you can buy Stenströms mouth-nose-masks here at hemden.de
CASAMODA makeshift face masks
The manufacturer CASAMODA Heinrich Katt GmbH & Co. KG from Oldenburg is also entering into the production of textile mouth-nose masks. The company produces 3-layer masks with two cotton layers, which include a double fleece insert of 100% polyester. All processed materials are certified according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. Due to the light, soft cotton outer fabric, the masks manufactured by production partners in Europe are comfortable to wear. As with other textile manufacturers, the CASAMODA oronasal masks are washable and reusable.
Note - community face masks are not medical face masks but reusable, washable masks for every day wearing
