We are pleased to be producing cotton face masks. These are made with two pieces of cotton with a micro dot fusible coated polyester base cloth of 25gsm, a lightweight interlining (see final photo for close up of this). The mask is approximately 20cm wide by 6cm tall. It has two pleats pressed into it, so the mask itself extends to cover the entire nose and mouth area. It has elasticated ties to go around the ear. You can wear these either side - patterned or plain - it's up to you!
CHILDREN: we have designed a smaller mask at 16cm wide x 6cm tall. The elastic is approx 12cm long on each side. We will offer this as an option when ordering, and slight discount on the price.
If you want to see more photos of our masks, then please check out our "Masquerades" photo album by clicking the Face Masks page on our website, or using external link: www.emma-bunting.co.uk/facemasks
Please note there is an increased price for the Man United and Leeds United masks as they require more intricate work in the design.
Once we have made the face masks, we will seal in a plastic cover and mark the time & date that it was packaged. We understand that you might be concerned about contamination of products (even though we work from a clean workshop), so we recommend you only open the pack 72 hours after the time marked on the bag.
We are adding new colours and fabrics to the website daily. At this stage we have added colour options so that you have a good choice of colours to start with.
We supply each pair of masks with one with it's own cotton muslin laundry bag (see photo) so that it doesn't get tied up with the rest of your laundry. Just fold it into three and it fits snuggly into the bag. You can wash these on anything between 40-60C. You could also hand wash in hot soapy water, or add to a pot of boiling water. Any method should kill viruses.
These will be posted out to you using Royal Mail 2nd class service. We will retain proof of purchase if needed. If you wish for a faster service and signed for, please get in touch so we can invoice you for the appropriate postal costs.
This face mask wiill not prevent you spreading or contracting any virus, such as COVID19, however wearing it will add some protection to you and to others. This is not a medical product.
We are keeping up with our orders, but please expect a 3-5 days production time. If you wish to make a bulk order, please email us directly on email@example.com.
Cotton Face Mask
If washing in a machine, place the mask in the muslin bag provided and wash as normal. If washing by hand, you do not need the muslin bag. This is a natural fabric product so will shrink slightly on first wash. Press once dry, with a hot steam iron.
