This mask is discounted in part because it contains the medical supply nose bridge that is less compatible with “user error”. It does not break with proper care and use, but fidgeting and folding may mean it breaks. Order will contain extra nose bridge wires to wear externally over the mask as well as our more flexible wire in case you want to replace the old wire. These soulful blue batik urchins will dive deep with you on all that corona-inspired self-reflection you've been doing... FEATURES: Comfortable hidden nose bridge wire (sewn securely into the interior of the mask) improves fit for different faces and minimizes fog on glasses. High thread count filters the air well while maximizing breathability Double pleats allow the mask to unfold to your desired height Elastic ear loops adjust to accommodate most face widths. Handcrafted on a sewing machine from 2 layers of 100% quilting cotton
CARE: Please follow CDC + WHO guidelines; wash your mask before wear and sanitize on a regular basis. Each order comes with a set of care instructions: hand wash (preferred) or launder on gentle in a delicates bag, then let air dry in the sun (which helps sanitize further) if possible. This also helps prolong the life of the elastic and nose bridge strip.
This size fits most adults, but if you’re unsure, please see the approximate measurements below (please remember these are handmade; we try our best to be exacting, but mask dimensions may vary 1/4-1/2 inch!):
8" across by 7" down before sewing.
8" across by 3.5" down laying flat when pleats and ear casings are sewn.
8" across by 6.5" down when the pleats are pulled open.
* Note for longtime MM/MM customers: this size is the same width across the face as the original standard fit but the same length as the full coverage fit
PLEASE NOTE: These are NOT N95 surgical grade masks. The CDC has indicated that this type of mask is helpful in limiting transmission of germs when coupled with social distancing practices and regular handwashing. Patterns and prints, the handmade process, and quantities of supplies (fabric for ear casings, backing fabric, and supplies) mean that each mask is unique. Please expect slight variations in each mask.
