(You knew it was coming!) Here’s a mask that reminds us of the spirit in which we face adversity—gaman. "Gaman" means to persevere and endure adversity with inner strength. It is an expression of a concept that is synonymous with the Japanese American spirit during a time of extraordinary upheaval and uncertainty: the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans in concentration camps during World War II. It is a cultural value that was passed from the Issei to the Nisei but perhaps has never been clearly understood by subsequent generations. Today, in our own uncertain times, we can all gain a bit of strength by internalizing the same powerful message and sharing it with others.
This non-medical face mask is machine washable (over 50 times), anti-bacterial, and comfortable for all day wear. Consisting of 3 layers, the outer layer is polyester and the two inner layers are 100% white cotton. Features an adjustable nose wire and anti-bacterial FUZE treatment. FUZE Biotech consists of non-ionic silver nano particles that mechanically break down bacteria without hazardous chemicals or toxic substances. Percent reduction of bacteria: > 99%. Made by local DTLA fashion textile company, Cozack, specializing in apparel manufacturing and brand strategy but recently shifted to developing cut and sew fabric masks. They are a core partner of the LA Protects face mask program
