“Making mask wear sustainable and sexy”
Maskett is dedicated to crafting affordable, sustainable and stylish masks that are inclusive of all race, sexuality and gender. Covid-19 doesn’t pick and choose who it infects, so we want to help protect EVERYONE. A positive of Coronavirus is that it has taught the world that we are all the same and we want to help emphasise this.
Along with social distancing, face masks are a vital tool to help stop the spread of Covid-19. However, the use of single-use masks are creating a massive amount of waste and there’s even been reports of forced labour in order to produce them. Our mission is to not only help stop the spread of Coronavirus but to do it in a sustainable, economically and socially friendly way.
Maskett is made up of 3 key pillars:
- Reduce waste
‘More masks than jellyfish’ - Covid-19 has impacted our world in many ways with one of the most detrimental consequences being the waste that ends up in our oceans. The coronavirus pandemic could spark a surge in ocean pollution if we don’t do something about it now.
We are challenging this by creating masks that are fit for long-term use rather than single-use. Our masks are hand and machine washable so they can be worn again and are handcrafted by local Singaporean female tailors and seamstresses to create long lasting, durable masks.
We ensure to only use deadstock fabrics when manufacturing our masks. This means we source leftover fabrics from fashion houses, fabric mills and even old clothing to stop them from ending up in a landfill. The clothing and textile industry is the second largest polluter in the world, so by rescuing these deadstock fabrics we can help reduce the amount of wastage created by the fashion industry.
By using deadstock fabrics this means our collections are completely unique as you’ll never see the same design twice. You can guarantee you’ll be wearing a one of a kind AND environmentally friendly mask by choosing Maskett.
- Give Back
Not only are people and the environment suffering from Covid-19 but animals are as well. Our founder has worked closely with the Soi Dog Foundation in Thailand who offer protection for stray dogs and are trying to change the laws of the dog meat trade. Animal welfare is a huge value of ours and due to Covid causing a lack of volunteers, these dogs aren’t getting as much help as they deserve. We are committed to giving 10% of our profits to the Soi Dog Foundation to help regain what they’ve lost.
