From addiction, to fashion and now face masks. Javier Zinzun Jr. is a self-made American success story.

As the owner of “I Got My Own Back”, Zinzun, Jr., has designed apparel for the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Ryan Garcia. He even made a foray into Hollywood. Playing a part in the creative design process for the Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone film Creed 2.
Now Zinzun pivots to another kind of fight. Focusing all his efforts on making face masks to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. With the scarcity of buying face masks at an all-time high, Zinzun felt it was time to put all his energy into helping. The goal is to help in stopping the spread of this deadly disease by having his face masks available for purchase online. “I felt it was important to get a quality mask made for the public during these crazy times we are all experiencing with the Coronavirus spreading like wildfire,” said Zinzun. “I came up with this design so people can reuse it over and over, putting the emphasis on it being washable.”
Each of the face masks is custom made with three layers of protection. They are washable and reusable, hand crafted for optimum durability. “My masks are hand crafted with three layers of 100% cotton fabric, front, middle and back, for best possible protection. In addition, these masks have a comfortably that is pleasant for breathing, unlike others that are hard to breathe in.”
“Right now, I know times are tough for a lot of people financially, so I wanted set a price that was affordable for those struggling,” Zinzun continued. “This is my way of giving back to society as I know what it’s like to come from humble beginnings. I’m hoping my masks can help stop the spread of the Coronavirus.”
If everyone puts in the thought, focus and heart Zinzun is giving. There is no way we can’t win this fight.
