We will be adding more stock over the coming week but most has been added. Please note australia post has been slow. Items are tracked
Our popular funky reusable face masks come in a large range of fabulous prints to suit everyone's style. A wire insert lays inside the seam along the nose so that a secure fit can be achieved. These masks are hand washable, adjustable and fit most. Straps are made from Waxed cord and a timber or plastic bead is used to adjust the fit to the face. The waxed cord and adjustable straps help to prevent irritation above the ears for a more comfortable fit. Each mask is hand made with care.
sizes = adult (8+) or child (2-7yrs). (Please see Child listing to purchase Child size)
Our masks are made from 3 fabric layers. The outer layer is the selected print made from a range of cotton blends including cotton, polyester/cotton, cotton duck/drill.
The middle layer is a cotton/ polyester of 1000 thread count. This was chosen post studies overseas showing that a minimum of 180 thread count is required to be an effective filtering medium. (See link to this study below). Using 1000 thread count ensures a tight weave preventing more particles from moving through the fabric. These Cotton Layers are absorbent trapping any potential airborne particles.
The inner layer is made from 100% Polyester which is water repelling protecting the face from the absorbent cotton. This layer houses the activated carbon filter. The filter needs to be removed before washing.
About the PM2.5 filter.
Each mask comes with a complimentary PM2.5 activated carbon filter. These filters have 5 layers within themselves (see picture). These filters last up to 60 hours of wear depending on how much filtration is required. Heavy exposure to smoke, industrial exhaust will only last 30hrs however used for protection against allergens pollutants and odours it will last closer to 60hrs. You can use the mask without the filter. I will have filters available to purchase separate in coming weeks. My masks obviously have not been tested in trials so I don’t claim that they are as effective as an n95 Or p2 mask. So if this is what is required this will not be suitable.
Hand wash daily with cold water add disinfectant and dry flat. Coloured beads may run if hot water used!
