A Glimpse Back to 2020: A Year of Transformation

2020 was a year that reshaped lives and priorities. As the world navigated through uncharted waters, I found myself driven by the desire to contribute in any way I could. That’s when the idea of crafting face coverings took form. Little did I know that this creative endeavor would eventually pave the way for the birth of ohashii.


The Perfect Fit: 3D-Origami Design and Nose Wire Magic

When I started crafting face coverings, I was determined to achieve the perfect balance of style and comfort. That’s how our signature 3D origami design was born – a true embodiment of form and function. With a strategically placed nose wire, bid farewell to those pesky glasses fogging up. Our face coverings promise a fit so snug, you’ll hardly notice you’re wearing one.


Innovative Ear Loop Design: Comfort Redefined

What truly sets our handmade face coverings apart is the innovative ear loop design that I personally conceptualised and brought to life. Crafted using sumptuous satin cord, these slide-adjustable ear loops eliminate the discomfort caused by traditional elastic. No more rubbing or irritation behind the ears – just a snug and customized fit that feels like a gentle embrace.


A Little Extra: PM2.5 Filter Slot

Your safety remains our top priority. That’s why we’ve included a filter slot for PM2.5 filters, ensuring an extra layer of protection. It’s the peace of mind you deserve as you navigate the world around you. You can find our compatible PM2.5 filters & nose wire bundle here.
