Reusable, Washable, Don't Do It, Face Mask With Filter Pocket

Regular price €82,95

Safety is paramount for our new normal.

With self-touching being one of human's habits, this one of a kind mask is a stunning note to self, reminding not to touch the face, to avoid bacteria and viruses entering our bodies.

I wanted to create awareness with the design of this face mask. So, I took an artistic approach by creating a hand wearing a glove. This hand is handmade entirely from upcycled denim, vintage lace trims, velvet ribbon, mustard yellow tulle fabric with shimmering clear crystals, vintage buttons, rhinestones, refashioned zip from denim jean trousers, and repurposed parts from IKEA's blue frakta shopping bag.

All these have been mindfully pieced together by hand, and sewing machine to create a one of a kind statement safety wear that is different from the rest. I have also incorporated into this unique design, a widely popular brand slogan and adapted it to 'DON'T DO IT' using applique and hand embroidery.

For the finishing touches, I have added a  zipped compartment just above the top of the face mask, which the wearer can unzip to insert a filter.

I have also added a red lip for the makeup-free days when all you have to do is smile with your eyes.

This mask is handmade with multiple layers which form the design. Beneath the assembled parts is 100% cotton denim, which I have lined with another cotton African print fabric.

This face mask optimises breathability, and it is very comfortable to wear. It also features para-cord straps which can be tied behind the head of the wearer.

This mask is not N95 or FDA rated, it is specifically designed as preventative safety wear to shield your face, mouth, and nose. The wearing of a face mask such as this could still reduce the transmissibility of viral particles by a small but significant amount, enough to make a difference to you and others.

This face mask can be worn as a headpiece when not in use as safety wear.
