TOM OF FINLAND X FAKBYFAK
CENTENNIAL EDITION
In celebration of the 2020 centennial, FAKBYFAK is pleased to present a collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation in the development and design of an exclusive face mask and set of protective gloves inspired by Tom of Finland, the renowned Finnish artist and one of the 20th century's great visual image-makers
Fine Face Mask & Protective Gloves Kit
TOM OF FINLAND® X FAKBYFAK
LIMITED CENTENNIAL EDITION
The release has been timed to coincide with the celebration of Tom of Finland's Centennial, marked by museum and gallery exhibitions, cultural manifests and partnerships worldwide

Working on the design for the mask and gloves, FAKBYFAK strived to encapsulate the spirit of Tom of Finland's characters and visual language, delicately and harmoniously combine it with FAKBYFAK's inherent sense of style

Beyond aesthetics, this face mask and gloves kit is constructed utilizing couture cut-and-sew techniques, pushing innovations in protective gear that fuses fashion, culture and function
Tom of Finland created well-defined images that to present day define and shape popular culture. This collaboration reflects the times in which we live in while contributing to Tom of Finland's memory and legacy

Just like Tom's art, the face mask and gloves convey refinement and a sense of humor — characteristics Tom of Finland is recognized for — while also touching on the human need of connection, engagement and love through safety - traits that contributed to the foundation of Tom's art

Designed specifically for daily use, whether during adverse seasonal or epidemiological conditions, for sports or everyday wear
The fabric weaving structure is moisture-wicking and ensures a high level of air circulation. The gloves "breathe" and the mask does not get wet from respiration
The material is soft and skin-friendly, so it won't be uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time
Ear strap-free. The convenient placement of the wide securing band makes it possible to adjust the position of the mask on the face
The glove's fabric technology allows you to use your smartphone or any other touchscreen devices without having to remove gloves
The face masks and gloves are made from a high tech, silver ion, antibacterial fabric (ATB-UV+). It has bactericidal and anti-fungal properties and serves as a highly effective disinfectant against pathogenic microorganisms
Bacteriostatic textile face masks and gloves may be washed and reused, maintaining the quality and properties of the fabric. After termination of wearing, the colonies of pathogenic organisms on the fabrics's surface die entirely within 24 hours
Eco-Friendly dyeing method, dying individual fibers as opposed to the entire fabric. This method not only ensures saturation and durability of the colour, but also uses less water, chemicals, and energy

TOM OF FINLAND

(Touko Laaksonen, Finnish 1920 - 1991), is the creator of some of the most iconic and readily recognizable imagery of post-war gay culture and is regarded as one of the 20th century’s most influential artists. He produced thousands of images beginning in the 1940s, robbing straight homophobic culture of its most virile and masculine archetypes (bikers, hoodlums, lumberjacks, cops, cowboys, and sailors) and recasting them through deft skill and imagination - unapologetic, self-aware, and boastfully proud enthusiasts of gay sex.

In 1984, Tom of Finland and his friend Durk Dehner established Tom of Finland Foundation with the purpose to preserve Tom of Finland’s vast catalogue of work and offer a safe haven for all erotic art. The Foundation works actively in educating the public in promoting healthier, more tolerant attitude about sexuality.
