All of our face masks are hand-made by refugees of two-ply 100% cotton fabric with soft elastic bands designed for this very purpose and they offer full coverage of nose, mouth, and chin.
If you wish to purchase 25 or more face masks, we have less expensive wholesale options available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
These fabric masks are not medical-grade and are not considered by authorities to be Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) because their effectiveness is not known. Health authorities are increasingly recommending that fabric masks be considered as “a last resort” as they may be more effective than nothing. We wish that we could provide you with medical grade masks and other PPE, but due to global shortages we are not able to at this time.
Our manufacturers washed these masks prior to mailing them but we highly recommend that you do an additional pre-wash. In addition to sanitizing the masks, washing may tighten the fibers to allow fewer virus particles through. We recommend washing the masks with hot water and soap. Do not use fabric softener. You can use bleach but it must be thoroughly washed out as any remaining bleach residue could cause facial irritation. Masks should be worn securely on the face and wearers should be advised to fiddle with the masks as little as possible. Other recommended protocols for hygiene and sanitation, including regular hand washing, should still be followed.
We are not medical professionals or public health experts. We encourage you to do your own research on non-medical grade masks prior to use. None of the organizations, individuals, or entities involved in any aspect of the manufacturing or distribution of these masks may be held liable for any results or consequences associated with their use.
