TREASURES FROM THE BUSH FACE MASK
Our re-usable fabric face masks acts as a barrier to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They must be used correctly and combined with social isolation to protect yourself and others. Please note our masks are not a replacement for medical grade masks (and have not been tested or proven to protect against COVID-19). Our masks are made with the DHHS and WHO standards for re-usable cloth face masks in mind.
—Outer layer tightly woven water resistant organic cotton canvas
—Middle layer non woven polyester recycled fabric as a 'filter'
—Inner layer silky and breathable organic cotton
—Each mask made from our own archive and current fabric stock
—Elastic ear loops come loosely tied so you can knot or sew to customise the fit for your comfort
***Due to hygiene reasons, these masks are final sale, and can’t be exchanged or returned.***
Handmade in Melbourne, print placement varies with each mask.
-One size fits most
-Designed for a reasonably snug fit, however, as these are not medical grade masks, a very tight seal should not be expected.
-Elastic ear loops come loosely tied so you can knot or sew to customise the fit for your comfort; knot or stitches can then slide inside the fold-over edge of mask.
-Can also rethread with different ties if required
-Once adjusted to the correct length for your face, it is optional to seal the ends of the elastic with a quick show of a match/ lighter/ hold to an iron (please do so with care). This will ensure no fraying of the ends occurs when you wash the mask.
– Outer Shell Layer: Water resistant Organic Cotton Canvas
– Inner Shell Layer: Non woven recycled polyester
– Inner lining Layer: Organic Cotton
-Machine washable (upto ~40°C standard wash) in a wash bag
-Please hot iron (outside fabric layer only) after washing (do not iron the elastic it will melt)
To best preserve the life of the designs wash fabrics on cool gentle cycle. Do not bleach and avoid tumble drying if possible; line drying is always best to preserve the life of textiles.
Our tea towels have not been pre-washed and may naturally shrink in the first wash by 1-2cm each side. This will not affect the lovely designs.
Cushions, heat packs and bags are best spot cleaned.
