A handmade cotton face mask in a classic woven check.
Our handmade cotton face masks are a generous size, and feature a classic woven check on the front and a plain cotton fabric on the back. There is a wire strip inserted along the top seam so that the face mask can fit snuggly around the nose (this is particular helpful if you wear glasses as it can stop them from steaming up). Each face mask has an option to add a pocket for placing additional protection inside, between the front and back fabrics, such as a tissue, piece of kitchen roll or a filtering cloth or pad.
Whilst this is not a medically appoved face mask, it is a well made home made mask, and with the addition of a filter inside the lining, it could offer a very high degree of filtering protection to the nose and mouth.
These face coverings are not recommended for children age 3 years and under.
'A well made home-fashioned mask may help the greater good if you are an asymptomatic spreader, and it may offer protection to the healthy individual, if washed and kept clean and if praticing social distancing and washing hands.' (BBC Radio 4, More or Less: behind the stats).
Our face masks are customisable, offering the following:
- Adult or junior size
- A choice of colours
- Filter pocket or no filter pocket
- Elastic ear loops or elastic head straps
100% woven cotton check and plain lining.
After wearing your face mask each time, simply remove and discard any additional protection or filter that you may have inserted in the lining, and be sure to wash the face mask in a 30-40c wash cycle, or handwash between each wearing.
Each face mask is sent in a poly bag with the date and time it was packed to allow users to leave in the bag for a period of 72 hours before wearing, whilst also having the option to wash before first use.
Adult size: H8.5 x W23cm
