These are double layer 100% cotton masks (except for the plain black which are a polyester/cotton blend outer with a cotton lining) with a pocket for you to insert a filter if desired. The filter that offers the best protection is non woven polypropylene like what some reusable bags are made out of (eg the red New World bags). Before using bag fabric as a filter, make sure it doesn’t have a plastic coating (New World bags don’t). In a pinch you can use dry wet wipes or coffee filters.
These masks are handmade in Motueka and have a removable nose wire and adjustable ear bands made out of thin, super comfy and stretchy elastic.
We recommend measuring yourself to decide on mask size. A size chart is included in the photo listings.
We are now selling masks with a non woven polypropylene filter layer sewn in. Check out our other listings for these and also ear savers (handy if you have to wear a mask all day long!). We currently only have medium and large masks listed but we also make masks in extra small (child), small (child or small adult) and extra large. Send us a message or contact our Golden Apiaries/Tasman Gold facebook page if you want something not listed.
