Design Excellence Awards Finalist Offers Easy Mask-Wearing Solution for Kids

Design Excellence Awards Finalist Offers Easy Mask-Wearing Solution for Kids

Stylish headbands with buttons for ear-relief

PR Newswire

PARAMUS, N.J., Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As the country grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic, Eric Zuckerman was disheartened to hear about the discomfort frontline workers were facing from long shifts of mask-wearing. As the owner of a major manufacturing organization, Zuckerman wanted to create something that could be donated locally to essential workers to help ease that discomfort. Almost overnight, Comforband was created. With his conventional business facing the prospect of downsizing, Zuckerman decided to make Comforband headbands available to the general public so more could be donated to essential workers and institutions while also keeping his employees working.

Comforband headbands have two buttons that are perfectly positioned to hold a face mask properly in place and away from the backs of the ears. They are made of luxuriously soft fabric and come in a variety of stylish colors, including the very popular tie-dye. Comforband was recently announced as a finalist in the Accessories Council's annual Design Excellence Awards.

A father of two children, Zuckerman was also struggling to find a way to keep masks on his daughters. So, the Comforband team created a kid's version specifically designed to keep masks in the proper position and make wearing them more comfortable. According to Lisa Kingsley, a Boston-area high school principal and mom of three, "Returning to school will definitely be more challenging this year. With Comforband, I know that mine and my children's masks will be on properly and will be more comfortable to wear throughout the day."   

Staying true to their original mission, Comforband makes a donation with every purchase. Since launching a few months ago, they have already donated over 1,500 pieces throughout the U.S. "What started as a way to keep people working and help our communities has turned into so much more," said Zuckerman. "When something is comfortable, you will wear it, and wearing masks benefits everyone."
