Perfect for summer! We are pleased to bring to you a more sustainable option, using woven cotton as the first layer with woven Tencel as the second layer with a PM2.5 filter as the third later of protection. Ultra comfortable, breathable and cool. These masks are hand dyed with natural colours made by a group of talented Balinese artisans.
We love Tencel! It's an environmentally sustainable fiber made from eucalyptus trees in a closed loop system. Which means 99% of the chemicals and solvents used in the process to break down the wood pulp are recovered and recycled. All in all, using less land and water than cotton to produce. Softer and more breathable than cotton, so we've used this as the layer closest to your face. With Tencel, moisture is wicked away from the surface, resulting in less bacteria growth on surface.
Natural Colouring: This goes through a 3 stage process. Stage 1 mordanting stage which involves soaking the fabric using symplocos before soaking with dye. This maximises the absorption capacity of the natural dye in the fabric in the next stage. Stage 2 colouring-firstly, the fabric is soaked in jackfruit wood soak to produce a yellowish color, then dried. Secondly, after drying, fabric is resoaked in a blueish Strobilanthes Cusia (Assam Indigo), so that the combination of yellow and blue produces a greenish color.
The last stage is the fixation stage which aims to fastened the color on the fabric to ensure less fading. At this stage the fabric has been dyed and dried, soaked in a solution of vinegar or alum.
Bonus Wash Bag: each set come in a mini bag that can be used for storage or as a wash bag before you pop it into the washing machine.
Each set comes with 1 adult sized cotton face mask no valve with 4 interchangeable PM2.5 active carbon filters, not your standard 2 filters at a super value!
