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.

You can choose to have an extra layer of polypropylene in the middle to make it
3 layers in total. Please note this may reduce the breathability. (see more info below) 

All masks are still 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!

We’ve made a few changes to streamline the process so we can get them out to you faster, so now...
  • There will be a set range of print combinations to choose from
  • Option to make it a 3-layer mask with a middle layer of polypropylene
  • Price now includes EXPRESS shipping Australia wide
  • Once this release is sold out, orders will be suspended again while we work on a 3rd Release.

Masks will be sent out as soon as possible but please allow up to 10 business days after the order is placed.
 

    Fabric: the standard double layer mask is 100% cotton, 120 thread count. Eco-friendly print.
    You can choose to have a middle layer of polypropylene to make it a 3 layer mask*. Please note this may reduce the breathability for some people.

    Sizing:  Child size masks are recommended for children up to about 12 years of age.  The child size masks are 3cm smaller in width and height than the adult masks when cut out. Refer to the photo of a 9 year old wearing one for an idea of size but we’d suggest an adult size for kids 12 and above.

    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 as soon as possible but please allow up to 10 business days after the order is placed.  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).

    Orders with other Good Garments:  If you have ordered a Good Garment and face masks in the same order, your face masks will be sent first, separately.  Your Good Garment will be made-to-order and usually sent 3 weeks after you placed your order.

    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.
