NEW STRAITS TIMES – Reusable mask with bacterial and viral protection

VOLVO Car Malaysia, Three Little Ahmads and NanoTextile have come together to launch a collection of antimicrobial face masks, known collectively as the “Volvo Batik Reusable Facemasks”.

In addition to bringing more sustainable alternatives to disposable face masks, the project employs the workmanship of local communities to support their livelihoods after facing unemployment and adversities due to the pandemic.

Locally designed by Three Little Ahmads – a Malaysian-founded children’s clothing brand and social enterprise – the face masks are ethically sourced, made and produced by single mothers, women in rural neighbourhoods and GIATMara vocational alumnus, whose jobs were displaced due to retail factory closures during the Movement Control Order in March last year.

For each face mask produced, an individual from this target community group will be fairly compensated.

Volvo Car Malaysia marketing and public relations director, Akhtar Sulaiman says this collaboration falls in line with Volvo’s core philosophy of “omtanke”, which is a Swedish word and Volvo’s brand ethos that means “to care and to be considerate”.

“We are honoured to lend a helping hand to local communities and sustain their livelihoods, especially during these economically challenging and vulnerable times.”

As an automotive company with one of the most ambitious climate goals in the industry, Volvo Cars is also committed to protecting and improving the environment and wider society.

One of the impending environmental concerns to come out from the current pandemic is the disposal of single-use surgical masks, which could end up in landfills or the oceans as nano-plastics.

Recognising that disposable masks are a fast-growing environmental concern, this three-way partnership produces reusable fabric face masks with a unique “batik tekap” pattern as a tribute to Malaysian art.

“When we received the brief from Volvo Car Malaysia, we took a more contemporary spin by creating one-of-a-kind batik stamps based on three flowers: sunflower, stargazer lily and jasmine – flowers that are not normally seen in traditional batik. With the help of nanotechnology and innovation, the face masks are both safe and fashionable for public use,” says Three Little Ahmads founder and fashion Designer, Datin Azrene Ahmad.

 

Each face mask has been crafted with the wearer’s health in mind. Designed and assembled by hand, each mask is made up of 100 per cent cotton, is antibacterial and water-repellent and provides bacterial and viral protection for up to 100 gentle washes.

NanoTextile, the company behind the face mask’s antibacterial qualities, is a progressive textile company in Malaysia that offers leading technology solutions in textile production.

Taking into account cost, production wastage, product lifespan and potential health risks, NanoTextile employs nanotechnology to reduce the penetration of contaminated droplets and prevent possible infection of the fabric by viruses or bacteria.

The addition of a PM 2.5 filter provides a fifth layer of protection and has been tested to effectively filter out 90 per cent of viral particles.

“Nanotechnology opens the door to a whole new way of processing materials in the textile industry. We’re looking at better quality fabrics made from a greater variety of materials, including nano-plastics. Through this partnership, we hope to showcase the potential of nanotechnology as one of the solutions to environmental pollution, and also in producing better quality materials,” says NanoTextile chief executive Officer, Dr Thomas Ong.

The face masks come in a set of three, with two available size options – medium and large. Each set comes in three colour variations, which are Dark Blue (sunflower), Navy Blue (stargazer lily), and Sky Blue (jasmine). Retailing at RM99 per set, the masks are currently available for purchase at Volvo dealerships nationwide.

Volvo Car Malaysia x NANOTEXTILE reusable face masks are enhanced with anti-bacterial, water-repellent, and self-cleaning features on the inside and outside layer

A study was conducted upon designing the face masks, showing that people had a few concerns when wearing a surgical face mask;

1. Cost
2. Waste
3. Allergic reaction
4. Sizing

Hence, this reusable facemask is made to address these problems. They are made up of 100% cotton, soft and washable, enhanced with anti-bacterial, water-repellent, and self-cleaning features on the inside and outside layer, that allows for bacterial and viral protection up to 100 gentle washes.

With nano-coating technology to keep the wearer protected and comfortable

Featured-PressReleases-Volvo

NANOTEXTILE’s award-winning technology has anti-bacterial efficacy that is laboratory tested with the achievement of more than 99.9%. It has resulted in the destruction of possible infection of the fabric by viruses and bacteria and simultaneously decreases the penetration of contaminated droplets in contact. Whilst the mask added five more layers of protection using PM 2.5 filter, which is tested to be 90% effective in viral particle filtration. Thus, it will keep the wearer protected and comfortable even though the mask is worn for a long time.

Undeniably, nanotechnology still faces some challenges in the textile industry. However, as Mr Nalin strongly believes in the nano-enabled technology, “With more R&D put into it, nanotechnology will be the answer to sustainable textiles.”

NANOTEXTILE aims to promote the technical textile continuously with its broad potential of nanotechnologies. The truth is that there is a wide area of nanotechnology invention that is ready for exploitation and market entry such as the demand in the sustainable effort.

Available in 3 colours and batik motif; Sunflower, Stargazer and Jasmine Flower

Untitled-design-31-3-1024x608

Consumers able to purchase the facemask starting 1 February 2021 onwards from all Volvo’s dealerships. As a curated premium item, the face masks are available in 2 sizes, M and L. Varied in 3 colors; dark blue (Sunflower), navy blue (Stargazer), sky blue (Jasmine Flower) and exclusively incorporated with Batik Tekap pattern.

Mr Nalin voiced out, “Batik has always been a pride of our country and we at Volvo Car Malaysia do recognize and embrace local arts and culture.” They believe that it is important to sustaining our Batik heritage.

“Sustainability will always be a journey that allows us to discover layers and interconnections between everything we do and the rest of the world. Sharing our journey and experiences, learning from, and supporting each other, is a key foundation of our organization, and this is no different for the individuals, company, and stakeholders who help us in our businesses,” added Mr Nalin.

With sustainability programs, we should ensure the fabrics are always re-energized by using advanced technology.

As the future of sustainability envisioned by Dr Thomas Ong, the Chief Executive Officer of NANOTEXTILE highlighted, “Nanotechnology supports the movement in the processing part. It provides the technology that adds value and quality to the fabrics, working toward a single vision; a path contributing to sustainability.” Without quality, there will be no sustainability. In the meantime, it is crucial to focus on the technology that can protect our health and hygienic matter.

Volvo Cars is well-known for approaching sustainability principles. They have already taken measures on energy efficiency and pollution reduction at their plants and offices. In short, the all-around initiatives on the facemask’s production; will help the environment and the living continuity of the local community amid pandemics, the sustainability of the textiles as well as our national heritage. Overall, all firms should follow suit in taking steps to ensure that sustainability is practiced.
