London map mask
You've all be asking me for these so they are finally here!
Now that face masks are mandatory in many public places such as shops, public transport and hospitals, it feels the right time to add these to my reusable collection. I've seen so many photos in the news of washed up disposable masks, and while a lot of the disposable waste from Covid-19 sadly cannot be avoided, we can all do our bit to help by choosing to wear a non-medical, washable mask.
I have followed the WHO guidelines to make these non-medical masks. Each mask is made of 3 layers of fabric - 2 layers of cotton/linen and a non-woven interfacing. The masks have adjustable elastic to enable you to get the most comfortable fit. They also feature a pocket for you to add your own filter, and an optional nose wire to adjust the mask around your nose for a better fit and to help prevent fogging if you wear glasses.
The masks are sold in 3 sizes - kids, small adult, and adult.
Kids - from age 3 and up. Will fit up to approximately 25cm ear to ear
Teens/small adult - up to approx 27cm ear to ear
Adult - 28cm and above ear to ear
To help you gauge size, I measure 26cm and wear a small adult size which fits me really comfortably. If you're unsure, take a quick measurement before ordering, making sure you measure from the front of your ear and over your nose.
There is also the option of adding a storage bag for your face mask. This is a cotton bag to keep the mask clean and dry should you need to remove your mask when out, for example when eating in a restaurant or driving. The bag can then be washed alongside the mask. To add a bag to your order please visit this listing.
Please note - this is not PPE and is not a medical-grade mask. These masks are not guaranteed to keep you safe from catching Covid-19 but intended to help prevent the virus from spreading further.
These are available on a pre-order basis and will not be made until mid-August.
All items are sent second class through the Royal Mail. Shipping will be calculated at the checkout.
