Why choose a mask from Puraka?
We Know Masks | Puraka was founded in 2018 in Seattle, Washington, originally offering fabric masks to protect against wildfire smoke pollution. In 2020, we joined the ASTM subcommittee that developed the national standard for protective face coverings, F3502, in collaboration with the CDC's NIOSH division. Our masks are tested in North American laboratories to ensure they exceed the minimum filtration levels. In short, we have the experience to know how to make a great mask, and what to look for in a filter.
More Filtration, Less Discomfort | Puraka Masks are designed to offer everyday protection suitable for active or casual use. A Puraka Mask with our laboratory-tested electrostatic filters is engineered to block airborne particulates in the critical fine-aerosol range significantly better than most cloth masks, but with less inhalation resistance and corresponding heart strain than a typical medical respirator (learn more).
