In order to keep our seamstresses in work and to have some much needed cashflow during these very difficult times for us all we have designed a face mask. We have done as much research as we could in the limited time we had trying to get this to market quickly on fabric compositions and also construction of the masks. We will keep refining them as we go and as more info becomes available to us.
This mask will be donated to a healthcare worker, as we know they're terribly short of supplies, or somebody from a disadvantaged area who would like to be wearing one.
This mask is original Shweshwe as we are so proud of our nation for standing together during this difficult time.
Colour Cotton Shweshwe
Outer Fabric 100% Cotton. 170-180gsm Lining 100% Cotton Non Woven Fusing
OUR MASKS HAVE NOT BEEN MEDICALLY TESTED AND WILL NOT PREVENT YOU FROM GETTING A VIRUS. IT'S ONLY PURPOSE IS TO PREVENT YOU FROM TOUCHING YOUR FACE.
Washable and reusable face mask. Wash in HOT water with household detergent after every use. Remember soap dissolves the fat membrane and the virus "falls apart like a house of cards". Soap is king. Take care that your hands are clean when putting it on / removing. Be aware that when you remove your mask and put it on a counter / in your handbag it can become contaminated.
Adjustable elastic straps. Elastic is imported from china and is in short supply. We are using what we can get our hands on. Some masks have black and some have white.
Has a pocket to insert a filter (filter not included) if you would like an additional layer of protection.
We have now added an additional (3rd) layer on non woven fusing to comply with the government regs of being triple layered. We still have the pocket to add a filter of your choice (4th layer).
