NOW AVAILABLE WITH EAR ELASTIC AND TOGGLES AS AN OPTION
Think we all like a bit of tartan - the front of the face mask is in traditional Cornish Tartan with the back and ties in white cotton. Also added by popular demand is a black ties option.
Our Face Masks are handmade with two layers of 100% cotton and two layers of non-woven material. A high quality professionally finished mask with plenty of tie length that provides ample adjustment for different head sizes, creating a good seal around the face. The pleated element is reinforced with extra stitching for strength. The mask is comfortable to wear giving good face coverage and allowing unrestricted breathing. Please note that the filters are stitched inside the mask (ironed on the reverse of the two cotton pieces of fabric that form the mask. The filter is a lightweight iron on vilene that is also suitable for hot washing.
Reusable and washable at 60 degrees centigrade.
Whilst the mask helps to protect from dust, pollution and droplets, it is not a medical mask and has not been tested or approved by any official body. Although not of medical grade, the mask does give some protection. It should not be used as an alternative to physical distancing, hand washing and respiratory hygiene, as these precautions remain the most effective towards prevention of infections.
When fitting or removing the mask, it is essential to wash hands first and not to touch your face. Each time the mask is worn, it must be washed at 60 degrees centigrade.
Please note that masks are non-returnable.

Much better with the elastic - thank you. I keep plugging where I got mine when I have to confess I didn't make it !!
I chose to replace the ties with elastic as I didn't get on faffing around tying it each time I needed the mask !! If you make some with elastic I'll buy two more.
Hi Patricia, Many thanks for your review. I have had the same feedback on several, saying the ties take too long to get in place. I'm happy to make some masks for you with elastic to go around your ears. I've been making them on request. My only concern being the length of elastic to give a good fit. To rectify this, I've been putting toggles on the masks, so that they then become adjustable like the ties. The toggles could be removed as well I guess, and a knot tied in the elastic as an alternative. Drop me a message if you would like to order. Once again, thank you for your valued feedback. Regards Jane
Loved the quality. The dropping of one star was because I found the ties frustrating and changed them for elastic. Otherwise lovely
My overall experience was good. I did cut off the ties and replaced them with elastic loops that go over the ears. The delivery was fast and packaged vey well.
