Moana Masks is an idea born out of the global pandemic and put into action by 18 year old Jordyn-Elise Passi. It has become a family affair of creating Pasifika inspired masks. Amidst these challenging times, we saw the chance to create some colourful, reusable, breathable, Moana mask.
As a Samoan family from Sinamoga & Vaivase Tai living in the beautiful Waitakere, we have loved creating these little gems. It has been therapeutic but even more special as it strengthened our bond as aiga/whanau working together on these Moana masks. For us also, making our Moana mask is also about representation! As a proud Pasifika family, we love championing our people, the people of the Moana!
Please note: Pattern & fabrics used are based on publicly available DIY mask tutorials. A DIY face mask is not a substitute for a medical device or Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) but can be used as one element to help reduce risk
