Cotton Face Mask
Cloth Masks | Made for the mindful
We have partnered with sustainable brand LILA.BARE in Kenya to produce a two layer face covering. One layer is made with Cotton Made in Africa (CMiA sustainably certified) fabric, grown within the East African region. This cotton initiative supports local farmers and ensures they are paid fairly for their hard work.
The other layer of our masks are made using LILA.BARE's hand-block printed premium cotton. This fabric is sourced directly from the family who makes them.
The inner layer has a small opening giving you the option to add a filter. For example if you are commuting or in a busy place you can then remove this filter once at work or in a quieter place. It allows you to still wear a softer cotton mask, but have added protection when you need it.
Available in two beautiful patterns, we have chosen a flexible and sustainable design. Masks can be worn in two ways as image 6 shows. This style allows for multiple ways to wear and a good fit to any face shape. It also washes well, and doesnt loosen and drop which elastic masks often do.
The inner lining on the blue design is a turquoise colour, and the lining for the cream zig-zig design is citrus coloured.
We really like these tips from Mind Charity, which help if you feel uncomfortable wearing a face covering. They provide some nice ideas such as adding essential oils to your mask. Our design may work well for those with any mask anxiety, as there are options on how to tie it, and you can make it loser/tighter to fit.
