I discovered this brand on digital marketing extraordinaire and owner of the Catalyst Media Nonie Maingi on her Instagram. Essy Mosa is a streetwear brand and defines itself as a “brand that is For the Woman and Man who isn’t afraid to step out into the world with a different story”.These masks are the most stylish ones I have personally come across because of their structure.
