Cloth Masks made by Juan Carlos - a bundle of 10
UPDATE May 28th: We've included an add-on option for polypropylene 80% filters with these masks, which now come with a slit for inserting filters. The filters are removable and washable. Filter use is optional, as the mask can continue to be worn without one as a two-layer cloth mask because the nose wire keeps the opening closed when worn.
Each bundle of 10 masks comes with 5 small masks and 5 large masks in colorful varieties.
Juan Carlos sews all our packaging bags. His stall at the artisan market has been closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, and he is currently making cloth masks from home.
The outside is made with repurposed corte textile, and the inner layer is a new light-weight cotton fabric, also in a variety of cheerful colors. They are sewn together with a machine, and with elastic to go around your ears. They are machine-washable and thus reusable. We recommend washing them in a mesh bag and hanging to dry so that the nose wire does not get tangled during the washing and drying.
Please note that these are not medical-grade masks. However, recommendations all over seem to include cloth masks in public areas. These serve that purpose, and can also be worn over a different mask in order to protect the inner mask.
Each bundle contains 10 masks. Please note that we are featuring this item at-cost. DHL shipping takes 3-5 days to the US, and costs $15 for orders under $100, but is reduced to $5 for orders over $100.
Though we are taking precautions against COVID-19, we recommend washing the masks before use as we do not have sterile medical packaging available, and the inner lining fabric is new. The masks can be machine-washed in cold water with normal detergent.
