Millions of surgical face masks and gloves have been carelessly thrown everywhere, especially since the COVID-19 crisis started. 

In Jordan, a chef named Omar Sartawi created a face mask that is close to his profession by using eggplant peel. The chef mixes old and modern cooking methods to ensure that his eggplant masks are durable and leather-like. The eggplant peels are processed and finished within two weeks. 

His inspiration in carrying out this idea was the Inca method of salting and dehydration. Saratawi also collaborated with fashion and jewelry designers to make his concept even special. They sewed different decorative stitches and added a few brass rings to the masks to give them more character. As per the chef, people think of ways to be creative and productive amid the crisis, so he formed masks that follow the trend of sustainable luxury.
