TECMASK is an Australian-born business and a leading provider of personalised, protective face masks who’s drive is to “change the perception of a face mask from a commodity to a fashion accessory”. We launched in Japan in 2015 and since then we’ve become one of the top-selling mask companies in the country. The TECMASK brand was created when its founders, David and Maddy Scarf, were travelling in Japan. They were surprised to see how many people were wearing plain white masks, especially when the people of Japan were otherwise fashion conscious. They asked – why can’t face masks be functional and beautiful? And so TECMASK was born. TECMASK has helped hundreds of thousands of Japanese to breathe easier while they live, work and play and has featured its fashionable designs in publications such as Vogue Japan, Elle online and LARME Magazine.
Since the conception of TECMASK, our brand has had the experience in opening Pop-Up Stores around Japan, including a store at the Aoyama Spiral Building in Tokyo, Isetan Shinjuku main store and the Laforet building in Harajuku, Japan.

Having made a name for ourselves in the Japanese market, the TECMASK team have now set our eyes on our home market, introducing Australians to the wonderful world of masks and the benefits they offer when it comes to ones health. And more importantly, offer our customers medical grade protection with a luxury look. We are happy to announce that as of March 2018 we opened up our first permanent store front located in Double Bay, NSW. This achievement officially means that we are the first permanent mask store in the world! Our TECMASK team are continually striving to educate the world about the importance of taking control of your health. And we ensure you that its possible to look fashionable whilst doing so.
So, if you’re travelling on a plane, cleaning out those dusty cupboards, surrounding yourselves with toxic chemicals while you work, have a nasty cold or flu that you don’t want to pass onto the world, not to worry! Because TECMASK have you covered!
