This face mask is handcrafted by UES in Osaka. The outer material is a dark indigo rope dyed lightweight wabash fabric. The lining is made of UES original rope indigo dyed twisted yarn fabric. It sits gently on the skin and breathlessness is also reduced.
The wabash dotted line fabric was recognized as railroad workwear since they wore the hickory stripes and dotted fabrics. Each fabric is unique and easily identifiable from the others.
The shape is made in a three-dimensional pattern that can be worn along the face and has a neat and simple appearance.
It features a rubber so that you can adjust the size, and we will deliver it in a lightly tied state. When wearing, please tie it tightly according to the size.
*Please understand that this mask is only for fashion use and not for protection over virus. We highly recommend to use it over a surgical mask. Hand washing is recommended and can be ironed at low temperature. No tumble dry, please dry naturally.
UES is a small Japanese label founded by Chuji Matsumoto in 1994. UES comes from the English word "Waste", which means that Matsumoto-San wants you to make full use of each garment for as long as possible before discarding it. It is a small judgement of the concept of disposable wear that is so commonplace today in the world of fashion and from which Matsumoto-San disassociates himself completely.
