END OF LINE: I WILL NO LONGER BE MAKING MASKS FROM JANUARY 2023.

This triple-layer, washable face covering with a filter pocket and adjustable straps is made from hand-dyed silk. The pattern and colour shading on each is unique. Silk also does not irritate the skin or increase local humidity around the face beneath it, making it suitable for prolonged wear, and avoiding accidental face touching.

IMPORTANT: THIS ITEM IS MADE TO ORDER WITHIN 10 WORKING DAYS. Orders including made to order products will ship when the item is ready, if you would prefer otherwise, please let me know.

Please note, face coverings cannot be returned or exchanged.

SIZE: standard adult 

DETAILS:
– outer layer 100% silk 
– adjustable elasticated straps around the ears / around the head (please select colour and style when purchasing)
– double layer of silk with cotton lining in between
– multiple colours available, see face covering collection here
– interior pocket for filter (filters are not included, please see WHO or CDC websites linked below for more information on these)

These face coverings are not medical grade or personal protective equipment (PPE). They are designed to be a substitute for disposable face coverings to be worn by the general public. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children younger than 2 years of age, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance.  

For more information on face coverings, please visit the World Health Organisation or Center for Disease Control websites.

MADE FROM: 
– Hand-dyed Indian silk outer layers
– Cotton lining
– Nose wire
– Ties + adjuster: elastic and metal 

HOW TO USE:
Always use a clean face covering, do not reuse previously used face coverings without washing them with soap and hot water. Inserting a filter is recommended. Then put the ties over your head and the face covering against your nose and mouth – the filter pocket should face your chin). Adjust the straps so it's secure and then pinch the nose wire to fit your nose, adjusting the face covering to fit your face. Once you are done using it, first wash your hands before removing the face covering by holding the ties only. Do not touch the front of the face covering. Wash the face covering immediately with soap and hot water and then wash your hands and face as well as a precaution.

CARE:
Hand wash the face covering before first use, and after EVERY use with gentle soap and hot water. Air dry. Do not put the face covering in a dryer or dryclean it. Remove any filter before washing. Darker colours may release excess dye when washing the first few times, so wash separately. Please note: all fabrics will fade eventually with repeated washing.

Excellent masks

This is my second order and I now have four. The masks are really well made and the colours are beautiful. They are by far the best masks I have bought and are really comfortable to wear.

Thank you so much Brenda, I am so glad you're happy with your masks!

Perfect for hot weather and long days

These masks have seen me through eight hour train journeys and city heat. They wash well, fit well and are the only ones I’ve used that don’t encourage spots. Buy one. You won’t be disappointed.

Thank you Francesca, So glad you find them comfortable!
