Japan uses Orsha linen for the production of protective masks
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Japan Ruslan Yesin said that linen made in Orsha is used in Japan to produce protective masks, reports Belta.
The Japanese partners of the Orsha Linen Mill have decided to use Belarusian linen to create masks that are necessary for medical personnel who work in contact with infected people. Masks made from linen have many useful features: they are pleasant to the skin, do not cause irritations and are suitable for daily use (they can be easily washed and do not lose their properties).
In addition, linen has antibacterial and hypoallergenic properties, which make masks more hygienic.
In Japan, many people have already switched to reusable masks, as the epidemic is not supposed to be over soon. Some people even began to sew masks on their own, acquiring Belarusian linen in stores.
