WATCH: Fashion designer Santi Obcena’s DIY face mask tutorial


Pinoy fashion designers have been stepping up to the plate as they use their resources to create personal protective equipment (PPEs) for the country’s health workers. 

While the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to affect the country, the supplies for face masks have gone scarce. Fortunately, fashion designer Santi Obcena uploaded a tutorial on how to make a reusable face mask. 

His face masks are sewn with an outer water repellent layer and a pocket for a removable filter. The best thing about his masks is that the materials can be constructed with household items. 

In his YouTube video posted on March 22, he specified that his DIY creation is for communities or households without access to surgical masks.

In an Instagram post, he shared that the masks are made with eco bags, umbrella cloth, and “retaso.”
