Many scientists and doctors across the UK are backing a MasksforAllUK movement and soon it will very likely become usual for us all to wear masks when outdoors. It is important not to deprive frontline workers of supplies of surgical masks and we are being advised to make our own… not easy for everyone.

In order to help the NHS preserve supplies we are calling on AOH artists and makers who would like to take part in a project to make non-surgical masks for the public to buy.

There is a small opening on the back where you can add a filter if you want. Measures 19 x 11 cm. Wash regularly in warm soapy water, preferably after each wear.

Fitted double layer masks with ties around the head (rather than ears) these are contoured around the eyes and are comfortable and fit the face well. They do not have metal strips so spectacles wearers may find they steam up – we suggest they try (doing as medics do) using surgical tape across the bridge of the nose, which is really effective. These masks are made of cotton/cotton mix and are fully washable. I have block colours polka dots, checks and florals to suit adults and children. DM if you have a special request.
Unique masks all handmade from second hand materials. Washable, safest by hand. (The masks are not MHRA approved). £5 including postage.
