As companies continue to release their own versions of face masks in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus, DSPTCH has partnered with San Francisco-based artist Aaron De La Cruz for a special edition face covering. Made with 100 percent cotton ripstop, the olive and green-hued mask is designed primarily with reusability and comfort in mind as an alternative to over-the-ear type of masks already on the market.

The artist’s signature artwork — which blends ancient Mayan aesthetics with modern graffiti stylings — covers the mask, which boasts a single elastic strap design that allows it to be worn similarly to a bandana. The tension is more easily spread, improving comfort and security. The adjustable strap allows the wearer to customize the fit, while a magnetic buckle provides an easy release. There’s also an additional pocket where a DIY filter can be placed between the two layers of fabric.

All of the proceeds from the sales of the masks will donated to two non-profit organizations chosen by De La Cruz. The first is ArtEsteem, a local non-profit specializing in art and literacy programs for children and youth. The second is Border Kindness, which provides aid and services to asylum-seekers, migrants, refugees and the displaced.

Check out the special edition face mask in the slideshow above. Retailing for $40 USD, the De La Cruz-designed face covering is available now on DSPTCH’s website.

In case you missed it, DSPTCH’s black and olive face coverings that benefit various Bay Area non-profits are still available to purchase.
