A long history of innovation
Taiwan is a a small but beautiful island that's most well known for introducing Boba milk tea to the world. Little do people know, it has also been innovating for the garment and textile world for decades. For over 40 years, Taiwanese fabric inventions have pioneered specialty applications for outdoor, sportswear, and functional apparel used by brands like Nike and Under Armour. T-Shirts that dissipate heat during hot summers? Taiwan. Recycled fabrics? Taiwan. It's no wonder Taiwan has been referred to as the Silicon Valley of textiles by the garment industry.
Yet for almost as long, Taiwan has also been a world leader in manufacturing personal protection equipment. It is one of the few countries in the world where PPE production is vertically integrated - meaning every part of the product can be manufactured locally. This stable supply chain not only allows innovation to flourish but also sets a high bar for producing high quality products at affordable prices.
In 2020, the Taiwanese government formed a collaboration with its largest face mask manufacturers in order to combat PPE shortage. The group is often referred to as the "National Face Mask Team." Besides ensuring the nation of 23 million citizens would never run out, these factories would also take part in humanitarian efforts via donations to other countries. In some ways, Taiwan's reputation for authentic, high quality products rested on the shoulders of these companies as Taiwan gave tens of millions of masks to the United States, Canada, and myriad European countries.
Taiwan Masks is extremely proud to represent two of the largest and most well known brands on the Team as its North American partners, and be able to offer their products during a time of need.
