About Bunshi Mask
The following are the main features of the Bunshi Mask, a next-generation face mask that strikes a balance between high performance and beautiful minimalist design:
– The Bunshi Mask blocks against more than 99% of fine particles.
It uses the latest nanofiber filter invented by Akihiko Tanioka (*2), professor emeritus at Tokyo Institute of Technology (*3), which blocks against more than 99% of fine particles.The Bunshi Mask can protect its users firmly and effectively as it uses finer mesh for its filter than that of the surgical N95 mask.
(*2) Professor Tanioka (professor emeritus) is a leading expert in the field of nanofiber.
(*3) Tokyo Institute of Technology, often called "MIT of Japan," is one of the top universities in Japan.
Furthermore, the Bunshi Mask allows users to breathe with ease as it uses the latest nanofiber, and it becomes an environment-friendly mask supporting a sustainable society as it is made out of materials from recycled PET or polyethylene terephthalate. It can also help reduce the number of times for it to be washed thanks to the effects of ultraviolet disinfection because it is UV-resistant.
– Its design is beautiful from every angle.
The Bunshi Mask has a well-thought-out design to draw out the charm of the wearer’s face. Moreover, its surface has luster and looks gorgeous.
– Using "top-end knit cotton fabric"
It uses a top-end knit cotton fabric treated by the so-called "silhouette" processing, the quality of which is higher than gauze fabrics. It lends itself a premium feel as it is gentle on the skin and gives a dry wear feeling. Another attractive feature is that it does not wrinkle easily even after washing.
