Production: will take about 7 - 10 days and you will be notified when your order is shipped. Please send us a message if you would like to make a custom logo or bulk purchase.
Sewn by refugee tailors living in Malaysia in a workshop sanitized according to WFTO standards
Each piece is certified Fair Trade by the World Fair Trade Organisation
Comes with a pocket to insert filters, refer to poster for filter choices and effectiveness
Each mask has 2 attachment options, ribbons & elastic strings, to enhance secure attachment
2 sizes available: Adult and Child
Measurements: Adult: (W) 21 cm x (H) 15.5 cm; Child: (W) 17 cm x (H) 10.5 cm
HOW TO WEAR
Open the mask cover, place the filter from the top (refer to chart for filter effectiveness).
Close the mask cover, ensure the filter sticks out of the upper cover and the bottom corners (refer to step by step guide).
The side with wire faces up, place the ear loops around ears.
Place the ties around your head and secure with a knot. First tie at the back of the neck, then tie at the back of the head.
Mold or pinch the wire to the shape of your nose.
HOW TO WASH
Wash the mask with water and soap.
Air dry, then iron for further sanitisation.
Please note that the filter should not be reused.
The usage time of this reusable mask is the same as the general surgical masks, for a maximum of 4 hours. Users are recommended to replace the cleaned and sanitized mask cover, and the filter insert once every four hours.
Fits well, but find tying at back of head and neck inconvenient to put on and take off. I suppose it takes a bit of practice. Only started using it today. The disposable ones with just elastic round the ears are easier to manage.

Thank you Jeremy!
I found the masks comfortable to wear and liked having 2 options of tying them. I do wish you had a variety of designs though.
Thanks so much for the feedback Anita! So glad you like them.
