Gingham Face Mask
Gingham Face Mask
We collaborated with our artisans Eric & Christopher on this limited edition Beekman 1802 Gingham fabric face mask. Designed to be used with a disposable filter that you can make at home. The mask features an inner pocket for disposable filters, elastic ear bands, and a neckband so it hangs easily while you're not wearing it. Our masks are cut to be a little large and they shrink in the wash to fit.
What can I use for a filter? The best option is any kind of HEPA filter but you can also use vacuum cleaner bags, air purifiers, air conditioner filters, coffee filters and even Beekman 1802 face wipes (dry.)
Each mask is shipped with an insert detailing full usage instructions. For first use and after each use hand wash with laundry soap and hot water. Air dry and store in a sealed container until next use. Do not put in dryer. Face mask may shrink slightly after first wash. Do not reuse filters. Wash hands before & after handling. Responsibly dispose of filter after each use.
Face mask may shrink slightly after first wash. Item does not come pre-washed/pre-shrunk. Measurements are for the mask before washing/any shrinkage that may occur:
Small 8.5" length x 4.75" height
Medium 9" length x 5.25" height
In our experience, small fits children, woman, and narrow heads/faces better. Medium is better for men, larger heads/faces, and more rounded faces.
As soon as our tote artisans Eric & Christopher saw there was a shortage of protective gear in the COVID-19 crisis, they decided to jump in the fight and supply their local community by making face masks, transitioning from their totes and linens to produce well-built masks that could help us all stay safe.
HANDMADE IN THE USA
Printed on 100% natural cotton canvas, our face masks are hand-cut, sewn, and screen printed by Eric & Christopher in Bucks County, PA. Each mask is quality checked twice by two different quality checkers before the masks leave the warehouse.
