The sparkling red piping on the masks adds to the style quotient. Since it has been designed to gel with the festive attires. 

Vinai Kumar Saxena, KVIC Chairman said, “The double-layered Diwali face masks have a small price but great value. It is another effort of the KVIC to protect people from pandemic while celebrating the festivals in style.” 

Apart from protecting people from the spread of disease, KVIC is constantly working to make its face masks look trendier. These muslin fabric face masks have added variety to our range of face masks that also include cotton and silk masks. At the same time, this is creating additional employment for Khadi artisans,” Saxena said. 

This fabric has been chosen for manufacturing as it helps retain moisture content inside while providing an easy passage for the air to pass through and is the hand-spun and hand-woven cotton fabric that is extremely soft on the skin and is comfortable for long-duration use.
