ARTface Reversible 100% Cotton Face Mask
Designed with delight! These one-of-a-kind reversible cotton fashion-art face masks were originally cut and sewn in Rockaway as part of our project to distribute masks to healthcare workers on the frontlines. For every "fashion" mask sold a hospital-style fabric surgical mask was donated to local healthcare facilities and workers. Now that the mask crisis has subsided we are donating 10% of every purchase to Rockaway Youth Task Force, a grassroots member-led organization principally comprised of young women of color within the Rockaway Peninsula working to secure social, economic, and racial justice for residents of the Rockaway Peninsula and beyond. If you would like to purchase a mask, just buy one here! ARTfaces unite!
This is a design that I spent many days wear-testing myself and I have since perfected the pattern after feedback from other clients--the end result being that this design fits many different face shapes, even children! (Though if you would like a smaller child-sized mask just let me know). The pleat design molds to each individual face, and can be extended or shortened depending on how long your jawline is. The style of elastic can be adjusted easily among many different head shapes, and doesn't chafe or irritate like ear loops sometimes can--Though I will put in the earloops if you prefer it.
Made from 2 layers of 100% cotton for easy, hygenic breathability; clean finished and reversible (be sure to sanitize first before wearing reversed); and with bendable nose-wire. Masks can be gathered at sides to create a tighter seal. You can also knot the elastic if you need a tighter a fit! Mask size approx. 8"x 4" flat.
These masks are re-useable but must be washed after every use (can hand-wash in hotwater with dab of bleach-based detergent). If you want to “sanitize” in between uses you can also blast with a steamer, dip in hot water (not boiling so as not to ruin the elastic), or throw in the dryer on high heat setting for a few minutes.
