Large Cotton Mix Face Mask - Recycled Sari
Washable Recycled Sari design cotton mix face masks
This washable, reusable face covering is made 2 layers, the outer layer is from a recycled sari and the inner layer 100% handwoven cotton. The two layers are used to form a 'pocket'. It allows a disposable filter or tissue to fit inside the pocket - recent laboratory tests have shown this increases the efficiency of the face covering to between 83% and 91%, depending on the thickness of the tissue inserted.
There is a wire across the top to form to the users nose. Elastic goes around the ears, not behind the head.
You will be sent a sari design at random.

The Peoples Mask is an initiative of the World Fair Trade Organisation-Asia and they are made in Sri Lanka.
This initiative also aims to provide work for some of the thousands of artisans in Asia who have lost their jobs because of the lockdowns in their countries. It is a small step made by the global Fair Trade community in the fight against Covid-19. The production process follows guaranteed Fair Trade standards and the factory has been cleared by the local authorities for compliance under Covid-19 preventative measures.
