Bilio Mask

Bilio Mask is a reusable, knit-to-shape face mask designed for long-term public use.

While health experts have advised everyone to wear face coverings in public, there is a shortage of vital, medical-grade PPE for health workers on the front lines.

Bilio Mask was created to keep the public safe and save vital medical supplies for those who need them most. This involved an entirely new design strategy around a local supply chain and domestic manufacturing focused on ambitiously applying new thinking to an often overlooked knitting industry.


This project has been longlisted in the wearable design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
