The mask is designed in a way that the wearer would be recognisable even while wearing it. Usually, when wearing normal masks, it is difficult to identify the person even if they are well acquainted. To put an end to this confusion, a few photo studios in Pallavaram came up with an idea to design face mask by printing the real faces of the people. The mask will have printed the person’s photos from the nose till the chin. The mask is getting popular among youngsters and students in the Suburbs.
Anto, who owns a photo studio in Pallavaram, said, “Our business has been completely down due to the lockdown for the past two months. Now we have opened the studio again to sell personalised masks. The thought of helping people and how trendy the idea is exciting.” He added that people can mail their photographs to them and his team would design three masks and courier them for Rs 500. “The public can also visit the studio and take fresh photos and masks will be ready in an hour.” The mask is made from cotton cloth and it is washable. Sources said a few doctors and nurses are also opting these trendy masks and have placed the orders.
