Known for its rugged line-up of U.S.-made bags and camera straps, DSPTCH is now the latest retailer to join the call in supporting the coronavirus relief efforts. The brand has crafted a face mask out of durable cotton ripstop alongside a detachable nylon strap in order to help raise funds for those most affected by the outbreak.
While the exterior of the mask features a sturdy, all-black ripstop fabrication, the interior is lined with 100% cotton muslin for breathability and a softer feel against the skin. The mask was made with the concept of a “bandana-style wearing method” for a classic silhouette and equipped with a single elastic band for tightening.
To offer more versatility, the face covering can also be paired with a nylon strap in shades of black, olive, grey, or “coyote.” The removable element, intended to help ease any tension on the back of the ears, features a magnetic buckle and snaps which can be tightened as necessary for each wearer.
Priced at $36 USD for the mask and $12 USD for the strap, the styles are available to shop now at DSPTCH’s webstore. 100 percent of the proceeds from the launch of the face covering will be donated to various Bay Area non-profits.
Elsewhere in fashion, Louis Vuitton’s French workshops have launched the production of hundreds of thousands of non-surgical face masks.
