TECMASK is an 100% Australian owned business and a leading provider of personalised disposable face masks who’s drive is to “change the perception of a germ mask from a commodity to a fashion accessory”.
The concept of TECMASK (Total-Environment-Care MASK) was created by an Australian father-daughter duo, David and Maddy Scarf, whilst travelling in Japan. They were surprised to see how many people were wearing plain white surgical masks, especially when the people of Japan were otherwise fashion conscious. Although they both appreciated the reasons behind wearing a surgical mask and the benefits associated, they asked – why can’t disposable face masks be functional and beautiful? And so TECMASK was born.
Combining Mr. Scarf’s 30 years of experience in the fashion industry and his daughter’s love for travel and marketing, TECMASK eventuated with a range of products incorporating definitive and colourful designs with a high efficiency PM2.5 filter.
In 2015 the TECMASK brand launched in Japan and quickly became one of the top-selling masks in the country. It captured the attention of a number of world-renowned influential brands including Vogue Japan, Elle Online, WWD Japan 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 fashionable disposable face masks and the benefits they offer when it comes to ones health. And more importantly, offer our customers medical grade PM2.5 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 disposable face 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 it is 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!
