Kikoy Reusable Mask Project

American Rhino has a commitment to giving back and during this time we will continue our mission. This is a time for us to come together and help the local hospitals, shelter and retirement homes to stay safe and healthy during this pandemic. To do this, we are using our apparel manufacturing resources to make Kikoy Reusable Masks.

Calling All Sewers

American Rhino will provide our 100% cotton Kikoy fabric for FREE to those that want to sew masks. 

We ask that you make one for the members of your household and then donate the rest to your local hospital, shelter, or anywhere that you see fit.

How To Use Kikoy Masks

The Kikoy Reusable Masks are not to be confused with the N95 masks.

Kikoy Masks are for precautionary purposes. They will keep people from touching their face, preventing germs from being released into the air (coughing or sneezing), and stop droplets from spreading to others you come in contact with.

The best part is they are washable and reusable! After they are worn we suggest that you wash the mask in hot water with detergent and let it air dry to allow for a fresh new mask.
