Malaysian Award-Winning Fashion Designer Creates Customized Face Mask for Companies – Tested by EUROFINS

December 08 20:34 2020

Kuala Lumpur – December 8, 2020 – Customized Face Mask for Companies. During the Movement Control Order (MCO) earlier this year, Malaysian award-winning Fashion Designer and President of MODA (Malaysian Official Designers Association), Melinda Looi and her fellow designers in MODA had the opportunity & honor to help Malaysian frontliners by sewing PPE. Now she’s using her expertise and creativity by creating customized face masks for companies.

When the situation improved with wearing of face masks as part of the new norm, Melinda was inspired to create and produce reusable masks that complied with guidelines issued by WHO & our Ministry Of Health. An added benefit was to help reduce the waste from usage of disposable masks which is becoming an ever-growing concern. The renowned fashion designer launched an ever-growing line of fashion masks fit for every style, occasion and price point.

Melinda was then inspired to take her initiative one step further by introducing customized corporate face masks through Designer Uniforms by Melinda Looi. These masks are directly sold to companies who could either pick from an existing range of masks and colours or they could commission the Melinda Looi Uniform Team to create a customized print based on their company’s / brands’ personality or objectives.

When asked about her inspiration, the designer explains: “I wanted to create safe, stylish and affordable masks for everyone. So, we continuously did R&D to develop affordable masks that are uncompromised in quality and safety.” The customized corporate face masks start at RM7.50 only! These customized corporate face masks offered have a specially designed 3D shape to allow for extra comfort as well as breathability.

The 3-layer masks come in two options for the inner layer – Dry Fit layer or the Antibacterial Zinc Ion Bamboo Charcoal layer which is available at a small surcharge. The masks have been tested by an international lab, EUROFINS and achieved a 97.4% and 99.1% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE ASTM F2101: 19) respectively. (Full Test Results here: & and here:

Given the vast expertise in the field of face masks, the company is also offering  free online webinars for companies wanting to learn the DOs and DON’Ts of having face masks for their companies.

All masks are made in Malaysia, they are washable and reusable, and hence a much eco-friendlier alternative to disposable surgical masks or respirators. Another plus point is that it adds to the protection and style of the companies’ employees’ work day!
