How

to

wear

  1. Always wash your mask before each use.
  2. Insert filter of choice into pouch before putting your mask on (see below for advice on filters)
  3. Place the loop around the back of your head.
  4. Adjust the mask to cover your mouth and nose, avoiding touching your face.
  5. Use the cords to ensure a snug fit and tie at the back of your head.
  6. Wash your hands before and after removing mask.

This mask has been designed with an internal pouch for the wearer to insert a filter of choice. This provides the wearer with added protection from airborne particles. It’s important to change these with each use and remove before washing.

Recommended filters include:

  • Coffee filters

  • Fibreglass-free vacuum bags

  • Paper towel

  • Tight weave fabric (eg. canvas, denim)

  • Polypropylene

We advise checking with organisations such as the WHO, CDC and NHS for further guidance. 

Our organic cotton masks are made in accordance with guidance that using a cloth face covering or face mask will protect other people in case the wearer is infected.  It is not a medical mask and should not be seen as protective equipment.  It will not provide adequate protection for the wearer from infection and therefore should never be used where infection levels are high.

If you develop a skin irritation, please stop using the mask and if it continues, consult your medical professional.  Masks should not be used if you have any underlying conditions that affect your breathing.  If you have difficulty breathing, take the mask off. Change your mask as soon as it gets damp.

REMEMBER: Wearing a mask in no way replaces usual safety measures like washing your hands and keeping a safe distance from others.
