*Please note, the first image shows an example of what this face mask might look like, noting that each face mask will vary due to placement when cutting the fabric. Other examples can be seen in the second image.
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 if you wish. PM2.5 filters are available on our website.
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. Replacement nose strips are available on our website.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.
