FEATURES, MASK USE, AND CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • All masks include a wire at the nose bridge, a filter layer or filter pocket, three layers of material, elastic ear loops.

  • All masks featured here can be made in three sizes.
    Small Face Mask: 9 1/2" W x 6" H
    Medium Face Mask: 10 1/4" W x 7" H
    Large Face Mask: 11" W x 8" H

  • Wear your mask when outside of your home. You should put the mask on and take it off with CLEAN just washed hands.

  • Masks should be washed daily after use. Masks can be washed by hand or by machine.If washing by machine I recommend you put the mask in a pillowcase or sock that is knotted at the top so that the mask is not thrown around too much. Masks can also be washed by letting the mask briefly soak in boiled water and soap and gently agitated (just a few minutes) before laying flat to dry.

SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL FACTS

  • All masks are made of upcycled materials, such as donated brand new  tee shirts, leftover fabrics from custom orders, etc. The masks are made using zero waste practices with all scraps being incorporated into future artwork and textiles by Pangea Kali Virga. You can see more of her zero waste fashion on this website! 

  • All masks come with a filter fabric made of Zep industrial towels which greatly help with effectiveness. You can read more about the inclusion of Zep towels in masks here. https://www.businessinsider.com/homemade-mask-using-hydro-knit-shop-towel-filters-better-2020-4

  • These masks are also reusable and washable, preventing more single use products from entering the waste stream.

  • Materials used are all cotton or cotton poly blends which are 71% effective as a double layer. The masks made to order here are three layers and come with a pocket to stick an additional filter inside or a filter layer of Zep towels.
