An interior pocket to insert your own filters to create an appropriate barrier necessary for Covid-19. Please note any cloth masks alone do not give enough protection. We recommend the use of a medical grade surgical mask or a filter made from vacuum cleaner bag material as a filter. The surgical mask comes with a soft nose clip to shape around your nose.
Elastics around your head give comfort and convenience. Made based on Fashion Girls for Humanity's "ultimate" mask pattern based on which VPL improved with suggestions from frontline medical workers.
Reversible. Lined with various colors. Patterns may vary.
Made in sunny California by a women-owned factory.
