Born out of Love, Rich in Science

Happy Masks has always been a family affair. Twenty years ago in Taiwan, my father partnered with a scientist (and family friend!) to develop a powerful nanofiber membrane filter. The SARs epidemic in 2003 then inspired them to create a face mask with this technology to protect against the airborne virus.

Fast forward to March 2020. My mom was worried about our safety as COVID spread in the U.S., so she sent us a box of these masks. My kids, ages 7, 5, and 4, and I started wearing them on our daily scooter rides around the neighborhood. Friends and neighbors started noticing our kids happily talking and laughing while wearing these unique “parrot beak” shaped masks. Soon friends of friends, and friends-of-friends-of-friends, started asking for them.

We created Happy Masks because we wanted to make these masks available for all families. Whether it’s going to the grocery store or visiting a grandparent, our mission is to make it possible for you to do the things you love with the people you love.

Stay safe and be well,
