Following on from releases in Japan and the U.S. last month, UNIQLO has now announced plans for the U.K. and European release of its AIRism mask. The mask was developed to help combat the spread of Coronavirus, and has proved a popular and affordable option as more and more countries make mask-wearing mandatory.

The mask itself is produced from UNIQLO’s AIRism fabric, focusing on a combination of comfort and protection. The three-layer structure features anti-microbial, moisture-wicking self-deodorizing properties, as well as releasing heat an absorbing sweat.

Additionally, the AIRism mask is machine washable with regular household detergent. According to studies, the filter contained within the mask retains 95% of its efficacy even after it has been washed 20 times.

The AIRism mask will release in packs of three from all UNIQLO stores in the U.K. and Europe, including the brand’s web store. A three-pack will cost £9.90 GBP (approximately $12.70 USD), and the mask is available in either small, medium or large and color options of gray, black or white. UNIQLO has also donated 4,000 AIRism masks to the Tate Modern.
