Reusable Washable Aso-Oke And Denim Studded Face Mask and Body Amour
Above everything else, guard and protect yourself and others.
Wearing a face mask is our new normal. To make a great looking, good quality, and long-lasting face mask that brings meaning, joy and value to the wearer every day, it matters that I create, reuse, and refashion as many textiles, and materials as possible, mindfully and purposefully using each piece of material sustainably.
I have used parts of denim jeans which have been repurposed and fused with handwoven Aso-oke cloth. These materials have been intentionally distressed, collaged and pieced together using hand and sewing machine to create an interesting body armour with a face mask.
The body armour is then adorned and embellished with cascading pointy silver-tone studs, which run across the middle and the shoulder parts of the body armour. A well-fitting decoration which I feel adds to this unusual style that draws its inspiration from the punk couture aesthetics.
For the finishing touches, I have added red lips for the makeup-free days, when all you have to do is smile with your eyes while protecting ourself.
This mask is handmade with multiple layers which form the design. The upper parts of the face mask are made of cotton denim and Aso-oke cloth, a cloth created by the Yoruba people of West Africa, which also form the lining.
This makes it very breathable and comfortable to wear. It also features ties which can be tied and adjusted around the head and neck to the wearers fit.
This mask is not N95 or FDA rated, it is specifically designed as preventative safety wear to shield your face, mouth, and nose. The wearing of a face mask such as this could still reduce the transmissibility of viral particles by a small but significant amount, enough to make a difference to you and others.
