These face masks are made by hand with authentic kuffiya fabric from Palestine by Michaela Corning in her sewing studio in Seattle, WA. Limited quantities available.
Each face mask has an insert on the inside for a CDC approved filter (filter not included). The masks are 4 layers thick (2 layers more than the simple cotton versions) and are made with the wider headband elastic measuring 5/8" wide in color black (not gold as shown in model photo). Elastic can be tied in the back to make them tighter depending on how snug you would like the mask. Elastic measures approximately 11-12" long. The length of the elastic is primarily meant for women's faces, so if you are a man or think you might need longer elastic, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Other elastic colors and lengths are available.**
Masks measure approximately 7.5" wide and 3.5" tall (unextended) / 7" (fully extended). One size fits most.***
Will ship within 3-5 business days from purchase date.
CDC recommends multi layered cotton fabric masks. With the filter pocket you can add even more protection by inserting for example a filter.
**The exact placement of the pattern on the mask will vary slightly. In order to use as much of the kuffiyas as possible without wasting the fabric, the masks will never be 100% uniform in terms of where the pattern falls on the mask. All are beautiful and unique. Choose the option you want from the drop down menu!
***For safety reasons, these are NOT RETURNABLE. These are not medical grade masks. Washing by hand is highly recommended due to the nature of woven kuffiya material.
