With high quality work in the field of microfibre, Babette Keller has already conquered the luxury world of watches and jewellery. Now Keller Trading / KT Home which has developed their very own, high quality textile masks has become the first company from the French part of Switzerland, to achieve the TESTEX Community Mask label for its textile face masks.
With face masks being mandatory in all publicly accessible indoor areas, the demand for reusable face masks is increasing. The FOPH (Federal Office of Public Health) clearly states on its website that self-made masks are not advised because they do not offer verified and reliable protection. Instead, the Swiss National Covid-19 Science Task Force has developed a set of recommendations and defined what requirements should be met.
Together with Empa, TESTEX has refined a testing procedure whereby textile masks are being evaluated on these recommended requirements for their filter function, splash resistance, wear comfort, reusability and additionally, their textile tolerance.
Keller Trading / KT Home’s founder, Babette Keller-Liechti, has established the company’s position in the high quality, luxury textile market long ago. For her impressive achievements, she even received the prestigious Prix Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award in 2009.
“The challenges of designing a textile mask that is compliant with the requirements of the TESTEX Community Mask label, lie in keeping it’s functionality after washing the mask. Together with our Korean partner of choice and experts in Switzerland we have made sure to combine the best microfiber with innovative and scientifically proven techniques,” Keller-Liechti said in a press release.
“Keller Trading / KT Home only accepts the highest standard and quality when it comes to the safety, comfort and design of their products. We have developed this Community Mask with a highly eco-friendly vision, mainly motivated by providing a solution for the people,” Liechti said.
