Variant to produce knit masks

In our effort to help California's healthcare professionals and first responders on the frontline, Variant Labs has created a form-fitting 3D-knit mask made from fine gauge synthetic yarn. The machine-washable, non-medical mask consists of a single-piece design with ear straps and an integrated front pocket which holds a replaceable nylon non-woven filter for increased protection. 

Together with our U.S. manufacturing partners, we are knitting more than 1,700 masks a day. For every mask sold at cost, we will donate one to a frontline worker. All proceeds will go towards purchasing more materials and to keep production running.

Variant’s digital manufacturing framework allows us to provide free automatic manufacturing instructions to industrial knitting machines throughout the country. Our vision enables hyper-local manufacturing wherever knitwear manufacturers are located.

We are currently seeking additional partnerships to help fund production.
