These hand-painted silk masks are an elegant alternative to other reusable cloth masks. They are lightweight, comfortable, and form nicely to your face. With a unique, hand-painted pattern on the fabric, they add subtle artistic expression to this protective "accessory." In addition to being stylish and unique, silk has properties that make it a superior fabric choice. No two are exactly the same.
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and comfortable because the fibre structure is smooth, so there is less irritation.
Silk can trap microscopic particles because it has electrostatic properties.
Silk is naturally hydrophobic, which means it is less quick to become damp and unhygenic.
These findings are supported by a recent medical study in the US.

3.25" x 7.5" with pleats
Moldable nose piece

Because the fabric is hand-painted, this results in variations of colour and pattern, making each mask unique.
