Hand-embroidered cloth mask: Fruits and Barriletes
We've taken our favorite masks made by Juan Carlos and incorporated new embroidery from our talented friends in Sumpango. The thread used is naturally-dyed cotton, and the inner lining matches the outside embroidery. There is a nose wire to keep the mask on comfortably, and an opening for polypropylene 80% filters, which are listed here as an optional add-on. These fruit and barrilete versions are all size Small.
Each mask is absolutely one of a kind! As such, please expect slight embroidery variation.
Masks are washable my hand and by machine, we just recommend using a mesh bag if washing by machine to keep the nose wire in shape. Use gentle detergent and hang dry.
Small: 3 inches by 7 inches plus elastic
