Fine Face Covering Mask & Gloves. Exclusive Centennial Edition Kit. Black
The convenient placement of the wide securing band makes it possible to adjust the position of the mask on the face
Dry and breathable
The fabric weaving structure is moisture-wicking and ensures a high level of air circulation. The gloves “breathe” and the mask does not get wet from respiration
The glove’s fabric technology allows you to use your smartphone or any other touchscreen devices without having to remove gloves
Soft touch material
Designed specifically for daily use, whether during adverse seasonal or epidemiological conditions, for sports or everyday wear. The material is soft and skin-friendly, so it won’t be uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time.
Silver ion fabric
The face masks and gloves are made from a high tech, silver ion, antibacterial fabric (ATB-UV+). It has bactericidal and anti-fungal properties and serves as a highly effective disinfectant against pathogenic microorganisms
Bacteriostatic textile face masks and gloves may be washed and reused, maintaining the quality and properties of the fabric. After termination of wearing, the colonies of pathogenic organisms on the fabrics’s surface die entirely within 24 hours
Comes with gift packaging
Working on the design for the mask and gloves, FAKBYFAK strived to encapsulate the spirit of Tom of Finland’s characters and visual language, delicately and harmoniously combine it with FAKBYFAK’s inherent sense of style
Beyond aesthetics, this face mask and gloves kit is constructed utilizing couture cut-and-sew techniques, pushing innovations in protective gear that fuses fashion, culture and function
Eco-Friendly dyeing method, dying individual fibers as opposed to the entire fabric. This method not only ensures saturation and durability of the colour, but also uses less water, chemicals, and energy
The release has been timed to coincide with the celebration of Tom of Finland’s Centennial, marked by museum shows, gallery shows and cultural manifests and partnerships worldwide. The edition is designed specifically for daily use, whether during adverse seasonal or epidemiological conditions, for special occasions or everyday wear. Working on the design for the mask and gloves, FAKBYFAK strived to encapsulate the spirit of the Tom of Finland’s characters and visual language, delicately and harmoniously combine it with FAKBYFAK's inherent sense of style.
Just as Tom of Finland elevated the homoerotic to high art, this collaboration changes the perception of a face mask, treating it as an aesthetically considered object that also functions as a protective shield. Beyond aesthetics, the face mask and gloves kit is constructed utilizing couture cut-and-sew techniques, pushing innovations in protective gear that fuses fashion, culture and function.
Tom of Finland created well-defined images that to present day define and shape popular culture. This collaboration reflects the times in which we live in while contributing to Tom of Finland's memory and legacy. Just like Tom's art, the mask and gloves convey refinement and a sense of humor — characteristics Tom of Finland is recognized for — while also touching on the human need of connection, engagement and love through safety - traits that contributed to the foundation of Tom's art.
The TOM's 100 face masks and gloves may be worn daily. The qualities of the fabric will be maintained even with frequent washing.
The bacteriostatic & anti-microbial properties of the used fabric are confirmed by a certificate from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a certificate from the Japan Textile Evaluation Technology Council (SEK).
Please understand that this product is not a replacement for medical-grade Personal Protective Equipment. Please continue to practice social distancing, wash your hands and refrain from touching your face.
