Reusable fabric face masks with elastic ear ties and nose wire – one size (should fit anyone from age of 8 years)

FOR LARGE ORDERS PLEASE EMAIL

ONE SIZE: 18cm x 8cm when folded. Unfolded it opens up (between top of nose to under chin) to 18-19cm

Materials used: 100% Premium Cotton (Oeko-Tex Standard 100), 100% cotton poplin or organic cotton | 125gsm  and lined with 97% Cotton / 3% Elastane | 190gsm

These are made from cotton or poly-cotton. (you can see examples in the gallery here) All the masks come with elastic you tie behind your ears to fit your face. It is not advised for small children to wear them. If you require a size for younger than 8 year old please get in touch via email. THESE MASKS ARE PERFECT FOR QUICK SHOPPING TRIPS FOR EXAMPLE.

They are lined and have an opening to insert additional filter material for extra protection (this is not included with the mask). You need to wash the mask at high temperature after each use and when in use, please DO NOT TOUCH IT until you take it off, and put straight into hot water with soap when you get back home. HAND WASH AT 60 degrees C.

As a filter you can use non-woven materials (corovin cloth, interfacing but even dried baby wipe or tissue paper and you can use more layers if the material is too thin)  but make sure you BIN IT after each use and replace it. Note: Respirator and medical mask filters are typically composed of mats of non-woven fibrous materials, such as wool felt, fiberglass paper, or polypropylene.

Links to some suitable filter materials: this one is used inside medical masks – Melt-blown non-woven material or you can use non-woven S13 heavy sew-in Vilene interfacing or Dipril material

You should wear them to keep the tiny droplets expelled in breath or coughs from landing on surfaces that could be touched by others or as a reminder to not touch your face. This type of masks is useful when you go shopping for example, use only for shorter period of time, not all day. Wearing this type of masks for public is better than using precious medical masks that key workers need.

This is NOT a replacement for surgical or clinical masks! They are not clinically certified. They are for those wanting to do a little extra to minimise the spread of sprays from their mouths and noses.

These masks help to create a barrier from water droplets and dust and are a visible but attractive sign that your are doing your bit in protecting others and reduce risk for yourself.

Lots of people wear them incorrectly. Please make sure you do not fiddle with them, do not touch the outside once you are wearing it as this would pass droplets onto the fingers. Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitise before touching the mask.

 

IMPORTANT:

  • This mask is to help to reduce spread of droplets between you and others.
  • Frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water is necessary.
  • You should still use 2m social distance in public where possible

These fabric masks should be washed at 60 degrees. You should also steam iron them but avoid ironing the elastic. Please note these masks cannot be returned or refunded.

Please contact me on contact@sewansome.co.uk to discuss any specific requirements.

Here is a rationale why even this type of mask can help a little: https://medium.com/@Cancerwarrior/covid-19-why-we-should-all-wear-masks-there-is-new-scientific-rationale-280e08ceee71

    We purchased some reusable facemasks for our employees to wear whilst driving buses. They have found them to be comfortable and easy to wear. The order process was quick and simple and they were delivered swiftly with comprehensive instructions. Would happily recommend to anyone!

  2. Sarah

    Gorgeous, so soft and easy to wear, beautifully made.

    I’ve gone from scepticism about these to being convinced by the science the last couple of weeks, I think we will all be wearing them soon, and these are perfect!

  3. Alice

    Hi. I just wanted to thank you for my face mask. It is so well made and the fabric so cheerful. I am so very pleased with it. I don’t think I will be venturing out for some time but will feel a lot more confident when I do. I will also not have any feelings of guilt that I am threatening the supply of masks for the NHS.
    Thank you again.
    Stay safe and well

    I ordered a couple of masks for my family hoping to just keep them handy for as and when we might need them, but I was so blown away by the quality of the masks and how brilliant they are that we decided to order more for our wider family to use. The fit is excellent, the quality is very good and Magda is fantastic. I will 100% recommend this service to those not wanting to use up medical masks or throw too much extra waste in the bin in these challenging times! Wishing you all stay safe & Well!

Thank you so much I will have the confidence to venture out when we are allowed.

    This is just to say a very big thank you for sending two of our many ordered face masks, they are beautifully made and we are extremely happy with them, so much so we are going to order a few more for other family members!

    Your face masks are by far the best we have seen and we can’t thank you enough for sending them early, we know how busy you are and really appreciate it.

    Just wanted to thank you for the face masks you made for me. They arrived 3 weeks after I placed the order, but were well worth waiting for. The fabric and quality are excellent and they fit really well. Will definitely recommend.

    These face masks are beautifully made, very easy to fit to different size faces. They have a great flexible rod over the nose to allow a better fit. I am very impressed, excellent attention to detail. I would highly recommend such quality products. Thank you very much!

    So pleased with the face masks I received. Good quality material, workmanship and finish is well executed. I did have to wait nearly 3 weeks, However Magda replied to my email quickly, to explain how busy she is. You will understand when you receive your lovely good quality mask.
