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. 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". The length of the elastic is primarily meant for women's faces.**
Masks measure approximately 7.5" wide and 3.5" tall (unextended) / 7" (fully extended). One size fits most.***
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 mask will vary. 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.
***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.
