Its been a long years past living here in Japan. It’s common for people to wear mask. I’m so curious there are some people wearing mask some are not wearing it. In some countries wearing mask is so strange on them.
Since ancient time, Japan has a culture of being considerate to other person’s feeling. They want to avoid disturbing others around them. Generally, the sick or not feeling well person wear mask in cases to avoid passing bacteria or germs to other person in public places or in home.
Especially during the spring and autumn season, there is large amount of pollen in the air coming from Japanese cedars and cypresses causing sneezing, runny nose and other symptoms due to an allergic reaction from pollen that enters the body. During the season of epidemic, wearing a mask help to ease these symptoms. A person suffering from pollen allergy or hay fever is normal for them to wear mask at work, school or when they going out in the park, shopping mall or any public places.
However, when pandemic corona virus burst worldwide, almost people wear a mask in any of season of the year. It becomes a trend of wearing mask as fashion lifestyle. The mask develops to a unique, beautiful fashion style with offering suitable functionality and for healthcare purposes.

We often read the following description of the mask. It is structured of how many layer in order to filter dust, large debris and can filter an invisible small particle. Also we read “non-woven fabric”. If we say “woven” means constructed by interlacing threads or strips of material or other elements which create a space gap in between of interlacing threads or strips that will give a passage for any large or small debris particle.
Therefore, if we say non-woven fabric is the material made from staple and long fiber, bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat or solvent treatment which is not made by weaving or knitting. It is an engineered fabric which design for bacterial filter or barriers and sterility, preventing bacteria forming in the mask.
Additionally, the structural design that has good quality ventilation of mask for our breathing and comfortable to wear, smooth and gentle on the skin.
