Amid the Wuhan Virus outbreak, renowned Japan designer Oki Sato’s 2017 debut “bo-bi” face masks from the nendo line have once again resurfaced, gaining the attention of the public.
“bo-bi”, which means “protection” in Japanese, is the combination of 10 layers of mesh that are capable of blocking out dust, viruses, radioactive materials and bad odors. To make it even more appealing, it can be reused and washed up to 100 times.
To extend its lifespan, “bo-bi” comes with its own soft case that allows the face masks to retain its 3D shape after use.
The soft case is made of the same material as laundry nets so that when it needs to be washed, you can merely toss it into the case and let the washing machine do the job.
In addition, the face masks have a feature that is widely lauded by women: it can effectively avoid smearing one’s makeup.
The face masks come in three styles: regular, high-end (shields against radioactive materials) and “slim.”
The masks are priced at around JPY 150,000 (NT$4,095). But due to the outbreak and publicity gained from Japanese celebrity, Yuzuru Hanyu, the masks are now out of stock.
Buyers will need to wait 3-4 months before they receive their purchase.
