The first mask that combines fashion with built-in patented filtration.
We get it, there are a lot of masks out there. The idea for the Sani Bandhan came out of the gaps that continued to exist in the market. We listened and we learned. Then we put the Sani touch on a mask.
Sani is all about the intersection of fashion and function. So we decided to take silky fabric and make it into a cool bandana style, which originated in South Asia and the Middle East in the 17th century. We combined it with a patented filter from NC State University's Wilson College of Textiles and consulted with experts there during development.
The word bandana is thought to come from the Hindi word bandhnu, which means "tie." Bandhan is a word that means "to tie," which gave us this piece's name.
The Sani Bandhan ties together fashion and function to give you a face covering different from anything you've seen.

And we may have a few more launches up our sleeves...
We use a premium patented filter from NC State University's Wilson College of Textiles. Using an animatronic breathing head form, this filter blocked 70% of particles.
Masks need to be cleaned so often that we didn't think it made sense to create anything that WASN'T machine washable. From the outer fabric to the filter, it's all machine washable.
Normal masks are so easy to lose, but we designed ours to sit around your neck as a cool accessory when you don't need to have it up as a mask.
The outer layer is a silky material, the second layer is a stretchy inner tube, and the final layer is the filter.
We started Sani between our hometown in North Carolina and our parents’ birthplace of Delhi, India. Our mission is to create multifunctional pieces that integrate influences from South Asian fashion into the special moments of our lives.
When the pandemic changed the world and occasions were no longer the same, we initially felt lost. But then we reached out to you all. And we listened. And we made a lot of prototypes... about 50 prototypes later, something special is on the way.
We take pride in crafting our pieces with the highest commitment to quality, design, and experience.
Our collections are made in small batches by real people, using traditional craftsmanship and techniques.
We value our heritage and family, and when you wear Sani, we want you to feel like you are a part of ours.
Join the family,
