Hand-Sewn Cotton Face Mask
What kind of masks are these?
These are cotton, handmade, non-medical masks. According to Ontario public health, this type of mask may serve as source protection -- they can be a useful tool in curbing the spread of the virus by cutting down on the droplets being transmitted through our breath. If we wear them, we may ultimately protect each other, as well as ourselves.
Can I wash them?
Definitely! They are designed to be washed and put in the dryer after each use. The ink will not wash out. If you prefer, you can iron them.
How are the masks made?
Every mask is hand-sewn in Toronto by people who sew for a living. When you buy a mask, you are helping local people keep their independent business going in an incredibly difficult time.
Do you have a kid's size ?
Yes, masks come in adult and child size.
Does my mask have a nose wire?
No, because this is not a medical mask and it fits more face shapes this way. You can insert a wire or pipe cleaner into the top seam of the mask if you want. Just thread any kind of flexible wire into the seam.
How is the print made?
Peach Berserk hand-prints (and sometimes hand-paint details) over individually hand-made masks, to order. This takes time, even though they are working as fast and hard as they can, and imperfections in printing are part of the charm of the finished piece! No two masks will be exactly the same !
Environmentally friendly water-based inks are used, which are heat set before shipped to you, making them completely washer and dryer safe.
