House of Waris & Philip Huang Use the Power of Indigo for their New, Charitable Masks

Masks that spread love, not fear

Masks are becoming a part of our lives. Though we once dismissed the thought of wearing a mask as overtly cautious, it’s now become the most important part of our wardrobes. Naturally brands have tried to do their part by designing and creating masks for those who don’t have access to N-95 masks, which still need to be going to hospitals first. Our friends over at House of Waris are the latest to come up with one of their own designs in collaboration with designer Philip Huang, and it’s exactly what we’ve come to know of the brand. The tie-dye style features 3-layers, and is made of Sakon Nakhon indigo blue, a natural dye that’s been used for thousands of years and has compounds that make it anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and antimicrobial. On front is a print of House of Waris’ motto: LOVE CONQUERS ALL. The best part of this offering is that for every masked purchased, one is donated to The Bowery Mission. We’re fans of House of Waris’ adaptogenic blends, which recently introduced their fourth flavor, Immunity One, and 10% of their functional blend (aka “tea”) sales are also going to Citymeals on Wheels. But frankly stress-relieving, love-promoting  teas are enough of a sell at this moment in time, and now we’ve got the masks to match.
