Update - Christmas reward
Christmas is coming and that is worth celebrating!
What if you could offer an Airinum mask for Christmas, to show to your loved ones that you care about them? We decided to make a new reward with a free printable Christmas gift card instead. This way, if you decide to offer a mask, we will send you a personalized envelope and gift card ready to print so your loved ones will not be empty handed for Christmas.
You can find the Christmas Gift reward on the right-side panel.
We breathe more than 10,000 liters of air every day.
But air not only keeps us alive - it also transports a variety of particles that can be harmful to our health. Have you ever had an allergic reaction to pollen in the air? Infected yourself during flu season? Do you live in a large city, smelling traffic fumes every day?
Just like food or water, the quality of the air we breathe daily affects our health and well being. In our ever more crowded environment, air quality has constantly decreased.
This is why we created Airinum, built on the vision to create a world where everyone can breathe clean and healthy air. We believe that people who want to breathe healthy, should have a reliable and fashionable way to do so.
Search for your location on the map to see how bad the air pollution has been on average in the past years (Source WHO).
You know that air pollution is a large health problem, but how can you best protect yourself? We tried and tested every mask we could find and the results were sobering.
Some of the products seemed to stem from an industrial age and were hard to wear and breathe in. The others looked better, but often failed our efficiency tests. If you wear a mask, it needs to protect.
We went back to the drawing board and redesigned the urban breathing mask from scratch, that is
- Protective - high-tech filters to keep out pollutants
- Comfortable - 4 sizes and adjustable features guarantee perfect fit for you
- Beautiful - with Swedish design that makes you want to wear it
- Reusable - thanks to quick and easy filter replacement
Technology that protects, no matter what
We combined the best technology available to achieve an unrivaled protection of our mask.
The results of our tests speak for themselves: Our mask protects up to 6 times better than other products in the market for civilian use.
Our filters leave only clean air behind. We have partnered up with one of the largest specialized mask producers worldwide to bring a high quality product to market. Our filters comply with the N99 standard and protect with up to 99% efficiency against viruses, bacteria, allergens and smog. Your lungs will thank you later.
Forget that you are wearing a mask
The Airinum mask is designed with comfort in mind. All materials are ultra-breathable and light.
The shape and size of our mask adapt to you. We have worked hard to make our mask fit in your daily life - whether it is commuting on a motorbike, in the subway or meeting with friends.
Designed in Sweden - Crafted for an Urban Lifestyle
Inspired by Swedish nature and minimalism, our masks complement your style and individuality. The designs fit to any metropolitan setting, so you can rest assured to be dressed in style.
Quick and Easy Filter Replacement
Using masks for one-time use is not good for you, your wallet or the environment. We therefore decided to make our mask more sustainable.
The filter of our mask can be replaced and lasts, depending on the air quality, around 1 month. The rest of the mask can be washed and used for years.
When you choose a mask as a reward you will be able to choose from 12 stylish designs. We combined expressive colors with beautiful patterns for men, women and children.
A mask needs to fit well to be reliable. We have created five sizes that fit all types of faces, both adults and children.
Stretch Goal: New Kids' Size
We have also now introduced a new kids' size as a stretch goal. If our campaign reaches 40,000 Euro we will also offer the size XS for children between 4-8 years old.
When our campaign is over in the end of December, we will send out a survey to you where you can choose from any design or size. If you bought more than one mask, you can also choose different sizes and designs for each of those.
To make our mask even more comfortable and easy to fit, we equipped it with a flexible stretch binding, adjustable ear loops and an attachable head strap.
We are a passionate team that values high-quality and well-designed products. With our strong network of partners in Sweden and around the world we want to provide the best information on and protection against air pollution.
We would like to thank our families and friends that have supported us on our journey from the start and have made this Kickstarter possible. A special thanks goes out to Max Larsson, Ali Quraishi and their colleagues at Husky Motion (http://huskymotion.com/) that created the stunning movie and pictures on this page. We would also like to thank graphic designer Daniel Coby Whitmore, and product designer Mattias Wiklund.
We founded Airinum with the idea in mind to create a worldwide community that cares about their health and the quality of air on our planet. We believe that Kickstarter is an ideal platform to create and grow this community.
Join us now on our journey. We are looking forward to your feedback, suggestions and support. Spread our message and become a part in the revolution for cleaner air worldwide.
Please note that shipping to certain countries worldwide might be delayed or cancelled. If we have to cancel a delivery, we will refund the the full reward price to the backer. We work hard together with our logistics partner to provide deliveries in as many countries worldwide as possible.
There may be additional duties, fees or taxes raised by authorities in your country that you might need to take care of yourself when receiving the shipment.
Risks and challenges
We take the potential risks of manufacturing a health product with technological components very seriously. Therefore we have teamed up with premium suppliers and partners who we trust.
We have come far in our development and our final product is now ready. The upcoming challenges are mainly related to manufacturing the products in time to ship them to our backers. We are fortunate to have a strong support from mentors and partners of the accelerator program that we are part of here in Sweden. We are confident to deliver a high-quality product that meets the high expectations of our backers worldwide.
We are excited to start this revolution for cleaner and healthier air together with you!
