Why choose a mask from Puraka?
More Filtration, Less Discomfort | Puraka Masks are designed for enhanced, every-day protection suitable for active or casual use. A Puraka Mask with our laboratory-tested electrostatic filters can reduce 90% of airborne particulates in the critical fine-aerosol range, much more than a typical cloth mask, but with significantly less inhalation resistance and corresponding heart strain than a medical respirator (learn more).
We Know Masks | Puraka is an American company based in Seattle, Washington, founded in 2018 after the West Coast wildfires. As one of the only pre-COVID mask makers in the United States, we serve on the ASTM / CDC committee that developed the national standards for protective cloth facemasks. In short, we have the experience to know how to make a great mask, and what to look for in a filter.
Our In-Stock Guarantee | A mask is not something you should have to wait for. Every product in our store is ready to ship from one of our U.S. fulfillment centers, usually within one business day or less from when you place your order. We offer free ground shipping on any order of two or more masks, or you can upgrade to USPS First Class / Priority for only $5!
