masks for the people

mask republic is a non-profit initiative launched by paper republic and Borealis. We have developed a new model of washable and reusable face mask, whilst creating work for independent sewers in the Vienna area.

Our masks integrate special meltblown fabrics, donated to the project by leading plastics raw material producer, Borealis. The filter enables up to 4 times higher filtration rates than regular self-made fabric face masks.

For every 3 masks sold, we will donate 1 mask to those who need it most in our communities.

innovative and responsible

One of the key innovations of mask republic is that we added a unique washable meltblown filter between 2 outer layers of high-quality cotton fabric. Our laboratory tests indicate that our mask are four times more effecient in filtrating particles and droplets compared to regular, self-made masks.

The meltbown filter is the result of extensive testing in order to get the perfect mix of breathability and filtration efficiency. The meltblown filter is similar to the filter that is used in classic surgical masks, with one major difference: it is not electrically charged. This means that the filtration is lower than surgical masks, but it also means it can be washed again and again.
