Business owner and fashion designer Ellen Macomber demonstrated her innovative face mask with a hole to allow people to drink through a straw while not removing their masks, in New Orleans, on Sunday.
The designer had already begun making masks when a friend suggested she put a hole for a straw after she was unable to sip on her beverage while shopping.
Her masks have since received high demand, Macomber said the masks have become a hit worldwide, «all over the world people have been calling me and enquiring about it.»
However, she insisted «these do not protect you from COVID they do not protect you from any illness what they help do is eliminate your spray.»
«I think they just wanted something fun and something different, in this, you know, really hard time,» she said.
