A reversible, two layer, cotton face mask with removable, replaceable HEPA filter.
This two layer, cotton mask is designed to fit well over the nose, come up high at the side and sits under the chin at the bottom, limiting gaps around the face.
The nose wire along the top can be used to shape the mask against the face - reducing any gaps even further.
There is enough space at the font to leave an air pocket, so it's not tight around the mouth, meaning it is comfortable and breathable.
Between the two layer of cotton material you can place our replaceable filters which are hand cut to size from HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) fabric - it is a non-woven, heat bonded fabric used in all sorts of purifiers and filtration systems. Research from Smart Air suggests that HEPA has a filtration efficiency of up to 86%.
The filter cannot be washed. It is recommended the filter be changed every few weeks, depending upon usage. Additional filters can be purchased either with this mask or from us seperately - see 'other products'. The mask can also be used without the filter.
This is not a medical grade mask.
Each mask is hand made to order by myself. Extremely high demand means lead times are unavoidably up to four weeks. Apologies for this.
We have had to start a daily order limit due to the huge influx of orders. Once the limit has been met, products will appear 'out of stock'. If you have been unsuccessful today, please do come back and try tomorrow morming. Apologies for any disappointment.
The mask is handmade from two layers of cotton.
The inner filter is made from HEPA fabric.
The straps are made from soft elastic.
Lay flat and without the elastic being stratched, the mask measures approx 35cm from one end of the elastic to the other. Height 17cm - to be tucked right under the chin and up and over the nose.
