Satori exists to promote sustainable, meaningful creativity. Because being alive is a required precondition for any sort of creativity, we reconfigured our production facility to produce facemasks to help with the shortage.
Should you wear a mask?
Yes. Lots of people are asymptomatic and presymptomatic, and it takes a while for symptoms to appear. Wearing a mask helps prevent infected people and asymptomatic people from unknowingly spreading the virus.
It's also recommended that cloth masks be worn instead of medical masks to help prevent a critical shortage of equipment for medical professionals on the frontline.
Our masks are made with a polycotton blend, which filters out approximately 70% of 0.02-micron particles (5x smaller than the coronavirus). For context, surgical masks filter out 89% of particles.
Our masks are reusable and machine washable. You can get one in any colour, as long as it's black.
When will you get your mask?
1 - 2 days if you live in Gauteng
2 -3 days if you're in a major metro outside Gauteng
A note about our pricing
We are being responsible and maintaining modest margins. Our pricing was determined by how much we need to keep running during this period that is difficult for any small business. Like all of our products, our masks are handmade in our workshop in Pretoria Central.
Do it yourself
If you’re home, have a sewing machine and time, you can download the pattern for a homemade mask from Freesewing.org.
