One of Tokyo's top design studios, nendo produced this bo-bi face mask for Clever. Wearing face masks is common in Japan, both to protect yourself from dust and pollen but also if you have a cold and don't want to pass on your germs to others. Unlike many face masks, though, nendo's stylish one is re-usable and integrates 10 layers of meshing for extra protection. Each mesh layer is developed for different applications, harnessing the know-how of Clever's industrial filters to cut down on the risk of breathing in dust, viruses, radioactive materials, and more.
The bo-bi also reduces odor and maintains circulation so as to avoid humidity levels rising as a result of wearing it. The mask comes with its own mouth-shaped case, which makes it easy to remove and also means the case can function like a laundry net when you wash your mask. There are two sizes (medium or large) and three versions: regular, professional (with an extra 2 layers of meshing), and slim (which helps reduce calories daily by adding a load to your breathing).

- Multi-use (can be washed up to around 100 times)
