We’ve talked about all of the historical landmarks we miss visiting, but what can we do in the meantime? Wear face masks inspired by these heritage sites.

Grupo Kalinangan will be releasing reusable face masks, which have filter pockets and two-ply breathable fabric. Their masks feature popular heritage sites around the metro like San Agustin Church, the oldest stone church in the country and Fort Santiago, a 16th-century citadel considered one of the country’s most important historical sites.

They also have historical landmarks such as Lanao del Sur’s Kawayan Torogan Marantao, one of the last standing examples of traditional Maranao architecture and Iloilo’s Miag-Ao Church, a Baroque Romanesque designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Prices have yet to be released for these masks, but they will be available for purchase through their website soon.
