Handwoven Lightweight Bamboo Face Mask with Metal at Bridge of Nose - Black, Gray, Beige
Durable and re-usable, these beautiful contoured masks are handmade with an outer layer of hand-dyed lightweight bamboo handwoven on a backstrap loom and an inner layer of cotton fabric. The color ways are consistent, and how the colors flow in the weaving is unique—no two are exactly alike. The elastic goes behind the ears. They are hand-sewn by the co-op’s amazing tailors. They have metal (coated paper clips) sewn in at the bridge of the nose, for a closer fit.
You can now get a mask to match your bamboo scarf or poncho!
Please note these masks are not medical grade or N95. However, they do follow the CDC’s recommendations for cloth face masks. Follow all recommended face-covering guidelines. Wash prior to first use and after each use. Hand-wash or place in a garment bag if using a washing machine. Hang or lay flat to air dry. Make sure the mask is completely dry before using it again.
This size fits most people, but may not fit those with very large faces. Check out our full selection of masks of different styles and sizes.
