Keep Face Mask in a Card-sized Package
** First in the World to Satisfy the Unmet Need** In this unexpected situation, there is NO product really caters to this need for temporary mask storage and solves the pain point. People just use envelopes or tissue paper to store “take-off” masks during mealtime which are NOT eco-friendly and with POOR user experience. To satisfy this, we designed the Maskeeper to tackle this scenario and created a new and easy table manner for everyone. This allows every user to “fold and store” the mask in a simple, neat, and hygienic way.
