It's just me here.
There is no factory of workers pumping out these awesome face masks. My studio is where your mask has been made.
The first MugMask was made on February 28, 2020. The next day I made a design change which allows a surgical-style disposable mask to be inserted between the 2 layers.
MugMask are handmade with 100% cotton batik fabric. Batik fabric has a tighter weave than less expensive alternatives, which will make a difference in what could flow in or out as you breathe. The fabric will hold it's color nicely through multiple washings, and a light spray of an alcohol solution will not cause the colors to run or fade.
1/8 Elastic is used to provide a gentler resting behind your ears. A wire is sewn into the top of mask to allow the mask to form fit the bridge of your nose. The large assortment of colors allows you to have a designated mask for each member of your family.
Thank you for visiting my site. My goal is to offer you a well made, well thought out, and creative alternative to disposable face masks. I have practiced strict social distancing since we were first asked. All my arriving parcels are disinfected before opening, followed by supplies undergoing the same disinfecting procedure. I do however recommend washing your mask before wearing. A light wash will soften the fabric & remove an residue used in the weaving& dying process.
Given the health crisis we are living in, MugMask is not a returnable item. I would never want anyone to think that I would reship an item returned.
