These masks are sold as a pair.
Please note: the colour of the toggle and elastic may vary depending on availability.
Pure linen masks with an elastic toggle, designed to assist in protecting against the spread of COVID-19. For each mask sold, we’ll be donating one to someone in need.
Our masks have a double layer design, and feature an inner lining that serves as an extra pocket – into which an additional filter / N-95 mask can be inserted for added protection.
Please note that these are not medical-grade masks and have not been medically approved. However, as research is showing, cloth masks can provide some prevention of the spread of the virus. These masks will help to limit transmission via coughing or sneezing of symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals (COVID-19 may be contagious for up to 14 days without presenting symptoms).
The fibre facts
After much prototyping and refining of designs linen was selected for (among others) its soft, durable and breathable properties. Linen is particularly quick drying, hypoallergenic and sustainable… In fact we’re such believers of linen masks that we wrote a blog here.
Available in packs of 2
We have been issued an essential service permit to manufacture these masks during lockdown. Our seamstresses are now working from home to avoid any unnecessary contact. The mask assembling kits are cut and prepared at the Mungo Mill using our 100% linen. They are delivered and collected using our in-house transporter. Once the finished masks are returned they are pressed and packaged under medical grade sanitisation procedures. As an extra precaution, we recommend washing your masks before first use…and of course wash after each use.
Wear and care
Each mask has an elastic tie and toggle to ensure an easily adjustable and snug fit over the nose, mouth and chin. While in use, avoid touching your face, and ensure that hands are washed before removing the mask. Hot wash in a soap solution of 60 degrees or more after each use. Hot iron. For detailed information on mask etiquette, follow this guidance by the WHO.
Free delivery on any orders over R800.
Under level 4 lockdown, we now have permission to ship both masks and homeware textiles – so all orders are currently being fulfilled. However, we are advising that due to lockdown backlog and logistics, shipping may be a bit slower than our usual turnaround time. Please bear with us – we appreciate your patience and thank you for your support.
Due to the nature of the item, we unfortunately cannot accept returns or exchanges on the masks. Please let us know if you have any issues however – we’re always open to feedback and innovation.
