Reusable Mask Design

Considering the needs of healthcare workers and people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are creating a multipurpose design to make DIY reusable fabric masks and plastic mask covers. Our design tutorial aims to inform the current need of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) design innovation, as well as to raise awareness on available alternatives that people can make at home. To make DIY masks at home, download and print the patterns and instruction below. Share your DIY results with us by @openstylelab on Instagram and Facebook!

Disclaimer: Our designs DO NOT replace medical-grade surgical masks and N95 respirators. They DO NOT provide 100% protection and should be used for emergency protection only.
