SHUT YOUR MOUTH
Born after a Facetime call, three Texas-based friends created stylish masks with a zipper front. Haley Manley, an epidemiologist, tells CultureMap she had the idea to design a mask that allowed wearers to sip their drinks while being responsible and safe from the spread of the coronavirus. The three childhood friends came together to use their different backgrounds to produce these masks; Sarah Cordill received degrees in Nutrition and Public Health from the University of Texas at Austin and Madison Herington studied Studio Art at the University of Texas at Austin and has owned her jewelry design business for over 10 years.
With each purchase, a reusable straw is included to help Houstonians — and Texans — stay hydrated in the heat.
