These days, getting your hands on any kind of face mask is becoming a challenge. The demand is soaring through the roof whereas the supply is dwindling. But if you have money to burn and are comfortable with buying something special, then you can buy this face mask created using alligator or snakeskin by All American Gator.
All American Gator is a company based in Florida that specializes in products created using alligator and snakeskin. The company has started creating and selling unique COVID-19 face masks that have been crafted from reptile skin. The skin doesn’t offer much of a protection against the coronavirus but it sure offers a peculiar fashion statement. The mask has been designed to make the insertion and removal of filters and linings quite convenient.
Brian Wood who is the owner of All American Gator said, ‘People are going to have to cover their faces, and unfortunately the situation may last longer than we imagined. Some people want to make a fashion statement even during this pandemic, so I want to give them options.’ These masks have been created using hypoallergenic soft shell silicone along with reptile skin that has been stretched onto it.
Wood also says that is considering relying on cloth because the surgical-grade materials are not readily available. However, he did mention that some of these masks may come equipped with advanced N95 filtration systems. The python face masks will be made with holes that are framed by silver, black, or gold metal rings and shall be available in a variety of finishes and colors. These face masks by All American Gator will be secured thanks to a VELCRO closure.
Brian Wood also says, ‘The designs are still in the early stages and I want to take advantage of the supply we have here not only of python skin but also alligator and invasive iguanas.’ He further says that the face masks created with the skin of Burmese python or invasive iguana will cost $90 whereas the masks created with alligator skin shall cost $120.
