Product Description

This is a homemade face mask made with a double layer of 100% cotton fabric.  The Good Garment face masks are washable, reversible and the elastic is adjustable & replaceable. The fabric we chose is quite a tight weave but still breathable. We made this after seeing the @littlestitchstudio blog post . Of course, these are not as effective as surgical masks and are by no means PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) but something is better than nothing if used properly and wearing a mask definitely stops you touching your face all the time.

We also have 3 layer masks that have an extra layer of polypropylene in the middle. 

All masks are reversible and adjustableThe elastic is threaded through and tied in a knot so you can adjust if needed.  There is a video on Instagram IGTV showing Danita threading the elastic.  You can re-tie the elastic and can also replace it if the elastic wears out from washing in hot water or if you'd prefer say fabric ties instead of elastic.

Each mask is reversible so you have a choice of 2 prints. This also allows for easy identification of the side that was touching your face and gives you 2 masks in one!

  • Range of print combinations to choose from
  • Adjustable elastic around the ears
  • Pleated for good coverage
  • Price includes EXPRESS shipping Australia wide

As these are handmade face masks, cut and sewn by hand, no two face masks are the same and there will be variation in size, pleat position and print placement.

Availability: the face masks will be sent out within 2 business days after the order is placed.  The price includes postage and handling. All masks will be sent via EXPRESS POST (please note Australia Post isn't guaranteeing next-day delivery but it will be quicker than standard mail).

This is not medical advice but a few points on how to wear them:

  • wash your hands thoroughly with soap before putting on
  • when you wear them outside the home keep them on the whole time - don't pull it down onto your neck and them back onto your face.
  • when putting them on and taking them off try and only touch the elastic
  • wash them with detergent after every use outside
  • we suggest ensuring the elastic is tightened in a knot and putting the mask in a garment bag prior to going in the washing machine

More info on 3 layer masks...

From WHO article*: “Depending on fabric used, filtration efficiency and breathability can complement or work against one another...Commercial cotton fabric masks are in general very breathable but offer lower filtration.The filter quality factor known as “Q” is a commonly used filtration quality factor....According to expert consensus three (3) is the minimum Q factor recommended.”
Cotton masks such as ours have a Q factor of at least 5.4 so exceed the minimum Q factor of 3.

The Q factor is discussed in the following article on page 9:
