These fabric face masks come in a custom bag and are available in four different designs, ideal for mixing and matching.
The four designs are:
Blackjack: Silhouettes of seeds, reminiscent of walks in the veld.
Ellipsis: … playing with the dots, waiting patiently for the future.
Triad: The strength of the triangle: carrying the past, present and future.
Locked: Inspired by the pad “lock” of lockdown, pulling towards freedom.
The triple-layer masks come with a filter pocket and one reusable filter, a nose wire in the seam on the bridge of the nose and elastic ties with toggles. Each mask will differ from one another, as they are individually hand-drawn. The masks measure approximately 26cm (width across the face from ear to ear) x 16cm (height from the top on the nose to the bottom under the chin). As the masks are hand-made, dimensions are approximate and variances will occur.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of masks will be donated to FoodFlow.
