These washable and re-usable non-medical face masks are handmade by the two of us in our home studio (in Goolwa, South Australia) where we adhere to good COVID safe work practices.
There are four layers of cotton fabric (one more than the recommended minimum three) and under the inner two layers there is an opening where you can insert an additional layer or filter of your own if you wish.
The mask is accompanied by a bendable aluminium strip. You can insert the strip and form it around your nose to assist with achieving the best, most comfortable fit. Gently remove the strip before washing. It may also be helpful to remove the strip if you wish to fold the mask in half for storage. Please be aware that over time repeated bending and straightening of the aluminium strip may eventually cause it to break due to metal fatigue. Please contact us if you eventually need to purchase a replacement strip.3 SIZES:
Please SELECT YOUR SIZE variant when making your purchase. Please see our Instagram story for a demo video of Katrina wearing a standard size mask, plus other videos of our making process. A link to our Instagram account appears at the bottom of our website.
CLEANING: we recommend hand washing in warm soapy water and drying in the sun. From an ABC news article by Doctor Norman Swan: "What will kill most germs, in fact what will kill the virus, is to wash your mask with detergent and water and let it dry."
DIFFERENCES IN PATTERN PLACEMENT and minor variations in dimensions may occur due to the truly handmade, individual nature of our making and our eternal quest to achieve the best placement from each piece of fabric.
Orders of 1-2 face masks are sent via Australia Post as large letters. Please note that this does not include tracking. Tracking for face masks is only available if we make these Registered Mail, which requires you to sign upon delivery - meaning that if you are not home when the package is delivered you may need to pick up in person from your local Post Office, which may be difficult or impossible during COVID restrictions. Please message us if you want your face mask sent with tracking.
Orders of 3 or more face masks become heavy enough that they are no longer sent as large letters and will be sent as Parcel Post which has tracking included.
