LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2020SFPRO-TEX, a new U.S.-based high-quality mask manufacturing company, with sustainable options, founded by fashion industry innovator Karyna Myres, is offering the private and public sector customizable protective face coverings, as much of the country begins the phased reopening process. Initial clients include Apple, Wells Fargo and the Pacific Maritime Association.
SFPRO-TEX was born out of Myres' desire to be of service during the pandemic. After witnessing frontline medical workers forced to wear bandanas instead of proper protective masks, Myres mobilized her network of factories and rallied support across social media to found SFPRO-TEX. This new venture has directly contributed to the security of 1,000 jobs, of which 300+ are in Los Angeles. Myres realizes the need for masks extends across all of America and will be a necessity in our new normal.
"As the world tries to navigate this unprecedented time, I felt compelled to put my skills and resources to work. Although, there are a lot of options available, I'm proud the SFPRO-TEX mask is a rare combination of functional, protective design with high-end fabrication using U.S. factories and employees," said Karyna Myres, founder of SFPRO-TEX.
SFPRO-TEX manufacturers premium 3-ply 100% combed-cotton, synthetic-free, reusable and sustainable masks milled and sewn from components in the U.S., offering five different styles from The Essential to The Professional.
