Face Mask • Pleated with Ties • Gray and Blue Seaflower
These fabric face masks are hand-printed and hand made in Hawaii by the Jana Lam team. We're hoping the bright colors and tropical prints bring you a little love and aloha in these uncertain times.
***All mask purchases are final sale. For safety concerns we cannot take any returns or exchanges on fabric masks.
Best practice for home use is to only wear masks when venturing out into the world. Insert a new filter inside a clean mask, edge to edge. Make sure your mask is secure to your face at the bridge of your nose. For added protection, a piece of scotch tape to secure the top of the mask to your nose and cheeks will make sure all air is being drawn in through the filter. After you return home, remove your mask, toss the one-time use filter, and put your fabric mask in the wash. Any hot water wash cycle will disinfect. You can also steam or boil your mask for cleaning.
This pleated mask is modeled after a surgical mask design. There is a bendable wire to fit around nose and cheeks. For added protection, you can use a piece of scotch tape to further secure the top of the mask to your face. This style of mask will be more comfortable for extended use, though it may not provide as much protection. Most of us in our day to day will not need to worry about being as protected as those in the front line of care. So as long as we are taking good care, cleaning our masks after each use, and using a new clean filter we will have our best chance of being protected. ONE SIZE
All Jana Lam Handmade in Hawaii textiles are silk-screened by hand on cotton fabrics with water-based inks. This piece is made from a 100% cotton twill fabric with a soft finish.
All face masks are double layer. Exterior fabric is a 7oz cotton canvas, and interior fabric is a 5oz quilting cotton.
All our masks are made from pre-shrunk fabric. In order to disinfect, wash in a hot water cycle after each use. Smooth out fabric and lay flat to dry.
***In no way are we guaranteeing that use of our masks will prevent wearer from contracting COVID-19 or any other viruses. Nor are we touting the effectiveness of our masks in lieu of surgical masks and N95 masks for professionals. BUT in the event that our medical professionals do not have access to those, we are hoping to provide comparable coverage to the real thing. We will continually improve our masks being supplied to professionals in order to make sure that they are receiving the protection they need.
***In no way are we suggesting that using the mask is any replacement for social distancing or staying home. But we do need to continue to buy groceries, and perform other tasks while taking the necessary measures to stop the spread. Please remember that our masks will be helpful to most, but it is difficult to breath filtered air. It’s best for those with compromised lung capacity to protect themselves by staying home, and away from any potential risks.
***All masks are one size fits most. We may add more sizes as the needs become necessary.
