TFS Natural Home by The Futon Shop, a San Francisco based organic furniture manufacturer and retailer, has quickly shifted production to organic cotton barrier face masks, cotton silk face masks, copper infused face masks, and LOGO branded masks. The difference is that TFS organic barrier fabric is so tightly woven the spaces between the threads are under 3.5 microns, and filters at least 95% of very small 3-micron particles. Silk has the benefit of being a lightweight material and more absorbent than cotton, perfect for hot weather. According to ZME Science, "a new study from the University of Chicago reports a multi-layered mask made from cotton fabric and chiffon or natural silk can be just as effective as N95 masks against the coronavirus.” Copper is well-known for its ability to stop and kill the growth of bacteria and other infectious pathogens. TFS copper infused masks have 17% copper infused into threads of fabric woven into the fabric and does not wash out. TFS face masks are available in multiple adult sizes and child sizes.
According to CEO, Suzanne Diamond of TFS, “Given the shortage of vital PPE, we have donated face masks to San Francisco's vulnerable population and essential workers.” TFS has already delivered over 30,000 face masks to consumers and essential workers from state transportation departments, national parks, front line restaurants, retailers, country clubs, and clinics.
The TFS brand manufactures their products with an emphasis on craftsmanship and natural high-quality chemical-free materials. TFS vertically manufactures every face mask, mattress, sofa, and futon from start to finish in order to provide affordable natural organic alternatives to all.
