BATCH 5 (MSK)
Each order includes: 1 x MSK ; 2 x Nose wires ; 2 x PM2.5 Filters ; and our zero waste concept delivery bag which can be kept & used to protect the MSK.
BATCH 5 is the fifth version of the Petit Pli MSK. It has evolved from the BETA(X) range. The BETA(X) range signals a Petit Pli research project made in limited quantities in London. If feedback is positive, the project progresses onto the next stage. This ensures we do not overproduce and waste resources. We want to design the best garments possible for you, with you.
Constructive criticism from BETA(X) owners has helped shape the BATCH 5's feature development. New to BATCH 5:
_Using black velcro which has a stronger adhesion
_Adjustable between multiple sizes to help fit a larger range of faces
_Including a spare replaceable nose wire
_Improving the user experience and ease of changing the PM2.5 carbon filter with contrast thread
Adjust to face shape.

About PM2.5 Filter
- _2 filters & nose wires are included with each purchase
- _Use: Insert PM2.5 filter into the (MSK) with numbers in order, exposed to the inside face of the mask and numbers in reverse, to the outside face of the mask.
- _Layer Filtration technology: Filters are made of activated carbon and non-woven melt-blown filter cloth and a five-layer filter system which works to absorb a range of airborne contaminants.
- _Size: The filter size is approximately 12 x 8 cm, which is suitable for most adult faces.
- _Safety: We recommend replacing PM2.5 filters after a week of use for the best performance. Disposable supplies can't be reused or washed. The mask without the filter is a 2-ply tightly woven construction.
Very well designed and comfortable, I've tried various different types of masks and used a pollution one for a while as it provided space between the face.
This mask is the best so far as it's durable, stretchy, light and gives ample breathing space.
There is 3 velcro straps and I can wear it on the second tightest option comfortably with my large head.
The nose bridge is quite hard but I found if I leave it slightly bent instead of around the shape of my nose it sits comfortably on my nose.
I use it without the filter and put a mask bracket I bought to give even more room between my face.
Overall, it's a a brilliant balance of ethical practice, design and purpose. I actually enjoy wearing it, it's comfortable and very lightweight, very easy to pull down and up and the shape molds around my face perfectly.
I didn't want to pay so much money for this mask and doesn't feel worth it but it does feel worth paying for what you get. If that makes sense!
I think it could be improved with little tweaks such as:
Make the velcro wider for more sizing adjustments and shorter so it can stretch up and down more.
Also a bit more fabric on the velcro side so it matches the other side which is longer so covers more of my chin.
beautiful blue and pleated mask. Thanks Petit Pli !
Very good quality! Finally I got my package! I read that some peoples noses are above the filter….seems like people with bog nose “like me” have the privilege here because it fits juts in the right place :P. Very Satisfied !
I am using the last Velcro but it needs another Velcro choice
Looks great, works great. Lovely piece of design.
Always worth a comment - wonderful customer service! An absolute treat!
