Handmade by artist, and owner of Rare Bird, Erica Skone-Rees. By purchasing a reusable fabric face mask, you’re doing your part to help flatten the curve (as well as supporting a small business and an independent artist).For every one purchased, one is donated to an essential worker & at-risk people in need.
During this critical public health crisis, the CDC recommends wearing masks in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Used correctly, along with social distancing measures and frequent hand washing, fabric masks can help prevent droplet transmission. They are primarily intended to protect others in case you are infected but not showing symptoms. Please see safety guidelines below.
Made to order. Please allow 7-10 daysbefore shipping.
One size, fits most adults.
The fabric shown in this listing will be the outer fabric of your mask. The lining fabric will be randomly chosen from my quilting stash.
2 layers of tightly woven pre-shrunk cotton.
1 pocket for a disposable filter of your choice
1 Wire nose insert creates a good seal.
1 Flat shoelace tie that secures around the neck & head.
Each mask has a seam casing / channel where the lace feeds, you are welcome to tie the lace to make it shorter. Tip: use a safety pin to guide your fabric tie or ribbon through the channel.
Hand made in a clean sewing environment with freshly washed hands. Wash mask before use.
For personal use only. Not eligible for return.
Please follow these mask use guidelines:
Wearing a face mask is not a substitute for Sheltering in Place. Please continue to stay home as much as possible.
The outside of the mask is “dirty” after you have worn it in public spaces.
When removing the mask, do not touch the front of the mask; hold by the strings/elastic. Wash hands after removing your mask.
Try not to fidget with mask on your face; wear it around home to get used to it.
Don’t put dirty mask in your pocket or purse -- this can transfer the virus from the mask to your clean clothes or purse.
Wash your mask (washing machine or hand laundry) after wearing. Water temperature doesn’t matter; it’s the soap that deactivates the virus.
We’re not medical professionals but we're doing our best to keep up with current science and public health news on the effectiveness of fabric masks. Fabric masks are not a substitute for surgical or N95 masks.
