Face Masks

By now, people are starting to realize that ‘Universal Masking’ is a real thing! This virus has a plus minus 5-month span from start to finish. It has been an incredible experience to be on the cutting edge of consistent research & development in order to help South Africans feel safe. As a Fashion Designer / Manufacturer & Stylist, I decided to use my skills to help people feel C A L M – E R  during this pandemic.

THE STORY

My mom has cancer and when my Dad went to buy her regular everyday face masks, they were all sold out. I went online to buy for her but to our dismay, the only masks available we’re 20 disposables for ZAR2500. That’s when I decided to manufacture masks!

 

THE FACTS

They are not surgical but they will help prevent you from touching your face. Take note as to how many times you touch your face in a day, I was shocked when I became aware of the frequency.

 

THE PRICE

R95 for a pack of 3 masks
R32 per mask sold loosely in a  box (great for staff)

Add Courier Fees from R65 – R240 depending on location in South Africa

 

THE COLOUR

WHITE face masks

 

THE SIZES

– Adult Masks
– Kiddie Masks

 

THE FABRIC

I have used 100% White Cotton Percale to ensure breathability.  200 Thread Count (World Health Organisation recommends 180 Thread Count or above) They are Eco-Friendly, washable & re-usable.

 

THE CONSTRUCTION

There is a small wire inserted above the nose area to ensure it fits snug against the face. They are Two-ply and manufactured as an envelope where you can insert your own filter if need be.

 

FILTER OPTIONS

Facial tissue

Charcoal filter (buy online if you can find stock)

Coffee filter

Vacuum cleaner bag (cut up)

 

CARE FOR YOUR MASK

Wash by hand or on a delicate cycle in your washing machine.

 Don’trub the wire area.

Iron your mask, make sure you don’t iron elastic or wire over the nose (it will melt!)

You can spray your mask with sanitizer during the day if you wish

Don’t wear a wet face mask, it doesn’t offer much protection

 

Masks are not 100% safe

Use at your own risk

Wash hands regularly

Don’t touch the face

Stay 1m away from people
