Six designers in China have produced a series of conceptual products in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The series, Create Cures (CC), features Chen Min’s Maskerchief. The Maskerchief is a reusable handkerchief that can also be folded into a six-layer cotton gauze mask. Chen Min proposed the design as a way of providing ‘more than just a mask’ while also addressing the environmental impact of single-use tissues and masks.
