In this weeks Meet the Maker, we're pleased to welcome founders Ben & Jake to tell us more about Mrsk Club and how it all got started.
This is part of uOpen’s ‘Meet The Maker’ interview series - your exclusive opportunity to get to know the real people and personalities behind the subscription boxes you know and love, and the ones you will soon come to!
What sparked your decision to start up your box and how did you get started?
Ben: It was during lockdown (with quite a lot of thinking time on our hands!) that we started to wonder how this “new item of clothing” was going to fit into all of our lives. And actually wanting to make it into an item of clothing rather than just seeing it as a piece of equipment.
Jake: For the first time in our lifetime an item of clothing is required by law.
Ben: What about underwear?
Jake: Haha, apart from underwear. We wanted to create a premium quality option that people would want to wear rather than just have to wear. Taking the hassle out of finding a desirable and fashionable option for protective face coverings, and not having to keep finding and paying for overpriced filter replacements.
Ben: After (a lot!) of research and development, we’ve honed high-quality unique masks that look great, fit great and don’t make it look like you’re wearing a giant nappy on your face. With regular supplies of Mrsk Filters, AKA carbon-activated PM2.5 filters that add to your protection! Plus, an orange interior to help prevent makeup marks, or dirt.
Jake: Plus our washable and reusable masks are much better for the environment than the disposable masks we see all over our streets, landfills and waterways. And all of the packaging is recyclable.
