Uniqlo Is Coming Out With Face Masks Made From AIRism Fabric

Here's everything we know so far.

(SPOT.ph) Retail giant Uniqlo is just one of several businesses and establishments that have reopened around the Metro since the modified enhanced community quarantine began on May 16. The Japanese brand is known for practical wardrobe finds like padded bra tops, canvas tote bags, white sneakers, and more. That's why it's no surprise that they would cater their selection of clothes and accessories to these trying times: Uniqlo is set to release face masks to help provide protective gear to its customers amidst the COVID-19 pandemic!

Though no official photos or design prototypes have been released by the brand yet, here's what we know so far: according to an article by The Nikkei, brand chairman and CEO Tadashi Yanai stated that Uniqlo's face masks will be available some time this year. The CEO was quoted saying that the masks will be "under a few thousand yen." JPY ¥1,000 roughly converts to P469, so expect the mask to be somewhere in that price range.


The masks are expected to be made of the same material as Uniqlo's popular AIRism undergarments, which feature a lightweight cool-to-the-touch, fast-drying fabric that's stretchy and form-fitting, but doesn't constrict the skin. We're already daydreaming about the chic, minimalist style and nifty construction Uniqlo's masks will have!

Since the start of the pandemic, Uniqlo Philippines has donated millions to aid the COVID-19 relief effort as well as supplied frontliners with clothing and protective gear.
