It is not only an alternative to social masks, but also a comfortable fashion accessory. MO TEX – Márcia Oliveira Têxteis has just certified GOKÄ, the first Covid-19 protective collar, a pioneering project that neutralizes the virus, and incorporates intelligent thermoregulation, dynamic evaporation and cooling technology.
“In addition to the filtration and breathability parameters, GOKÄ has the capacity to neutralize enveloped viruses, as is the case with Sars Cov 2, with a state-of-the-art technology that defuses 98.3% of the virus in one minute, and inactivates it completely in 10 minutes”, states the start-up MO TEX – Márcia Oliveira Têxteis, which developed the accessory.
The company also states that, “with comfort in mind, intelligent thermoregulation, dynamic evaporation and cooling technology were taken into account too”. Márcia Oliveira, executive director of MO TEX, explains that “the goal is to minimize the impact and discomfort that comes from mask use, turning the safety item into a fashion accessory, without any negative connotation”.
The collars will be marketed both in the collar and Hoodie version.
