The luxury of silk is here in the form of a COVID-19 mask. Each piece is cut and sewn as well as dyed locally by one single human with a lot of love.
There are 5 sizes: X-Small: 3-6 years, Small: 7-12 years, Medium: Teens + Women, Large: Women + Men X-Large: Men. These sizes are merely a guide as we believe gender is a binary.
There are 5 colour ways: Indigo, Peach (madder root with alum), Muted Peach (madder root with iron), Rose (madder root) and Champagne Mushroom (madder root and iron)
These masks are made with 100% silk charmeuse and they are truly heavenly to wear as well as extremely breathable. The fabrics have all been machine washed however it is recommended to hang to dry, with a light iron press to keep your mask nice and crisp.
Researchers have found that when silk is used for protection of the face, silk fibres are the most effective at preventing the penetration of droplets, and the least absorbent of water, because of its intensely hydrophobic character compared to the other fabrics and fibres tested.
