Introducing Embroidered Face Masks! These unique masks are made with vintage textiles (typically made with vintage napkins or tablecloth remnants) so you can protect yourself and others in style. :)
This mask style is meant to fit over the nose and chin and features a 100% cotton filter pocket, adjustable sewn-in nose insert (made from copper wire that can be washed and will not rust), and an adjustable strap that will be left untied so you may adjust, tighten, secure, and trim ends as needed. Strap material will be made out of whatever I have available, but is typically either 1/4" elastic, stretchy jersey/cotton t-shirt yarn, or skinny elastic cording.
You may choose your strap style to either have straps go all the way around the head or to to go over the ears instead. If you do not select one, the default will be the around-the-ear style.
THIS STYLE IS OFFERED IN WOMEN'S SIZE ONLY.
PLEASE NOTE: These masks will NOT prevent you from contracting COVID-19. But the CDC is now advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. These can also help prevent people who tend to touch their face from doing so in public. These masks are not meant to replace surgical masks or N-95 respirators.
Made-to-order masks will be made and shipped within 5-7 days.
Caring for your mask: Your mask can be laundered in your washing machine- Please wash your mask with detergent and on the hottest water settings. It can then be tumble-dried or hung/laid flat to dry. It is recommended that you wash your mask frequently (as least once a day), otherwise, its helpful benefits are pretty much rendered useless.
