An item that we seldom knew we would need yet suddenly, and urgently, do.
Now that we are past the phase of novel discomfort and have had time to live and breathe with these new bedfellows, preferences are emerging, as well as practical concerns.
We need something that can be washed, will last for multiple wears, is as comfortable (as is possible) to wear, is made from materials we feel good in, and (dare to dream) speaks to our aesthetic sensibilities. Can we also have something ethically made?
Here is our humble offering that I dearly hope will speak to all of those points and provide you with something that is a source of comfort as much as it is a functional and essential accessory.
COMPOSITION: This cloth face covering’s body and ties are made from washable, 100% Raw Silk. The benefit of selecting Silk is its naturally antimicrobial properties. The mask body is lined with 100% Organic Cotton, multi-ply bubble gauze. We intentionally avoided the use of elastic to offer a latex-free option for those with allergies. Made in-house in Austin, TX. The fabric has been hand-painted with plant pigments by our artist crush Naomi Clark. Please note that each mask is one of a kind and therefore contains differences in pattern and shade.
WEAR: Slip the looped side of the strap all the way over you head, cinch the body to match the unique contours of your face, and tie the straps at the back of your head. A favorite feature is that it can rest around your neck when removal is necessary by simply untying.
CARE: Either machine wash on warm and delicate in a delicates bag or a retired pillow case or soak in a clean stainless steel pot on the stove top after first diluting your preferred laundry soap or grease fighting dish soap, simmering for approximately 20 minutes. Air dry.
Body and Straps: 100% Naturally Dyed Silk
Interior Lining: 100% Organic Cotton
This item is final sale and each mask is unique. Please note, these are not medical grade masks.
