If a colour or print is sold out will it be available again?
No, we try to keep our mask initiative as fun as possible by introducing new colours and prints weekly. If a style you like is sold out on the online store, it means we have unfortunately run out of the fabric.
Can I get a discount if I buy more than 10?
Yes! How fun is that. When you buy a bulk pack of ten you automatically save up to R10 per mask.
Can I choose what comes in my bulk pack?
Unfortunately not, our bulk packs are a fun mix of colours, prints and once off prints that aren't sold individually. You can either perfect a pack of 10 all in one size, or select ALL to purchase a bulk pack that includes sizes S-L.
How do I know what size mask to buy?
Each product page has a size guide, scroll through the images and you will find the measuring chart. Please note that the measurements are for the actual mask itself, therefore your measurements should be slightly smaller than the size you choose. If your measurement is 12cm from nose to chin; you need a mask that measures 13cm nose to chin.
Do you sell children's masks?
Our size XS which is available in all prints and colours fits children aged 4-10 more or less. Check the size chart to be sure what size your child will need.
Can I change my mask to elastics, different ties etc.
Unfortunately we are incredibly backed up and run a tight production schedule and cannot at this time make any masks with special requirements.

Should cloth face coverings be washed or otherwise cleaned regularly? How regularly?
Yes. They should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use. If wearing the mask daily for long periods of time it is recommended to have two masks and alternate, washing them daily.
How do I safely sterilize/clean a cloth face covering?
Our masks need to be hand washed with a bit of washing powder. If washing in the machine, ensure to place masks in a washable bag in order to not damage the wire insert.
How does one safely remove a used cloth face covering?
Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing your face covering and wash hands immediately after removing.
How do I store my mask?
Masks should be stored in a safe, clean and hygienic space by themselves. Do not touch the inside of your mask (our masks are different colours on the inside and out to easily differentiate the inside and the outside). If you are living with others or living with a family should all store their masks separately.
Why should I wear a cloth mask?
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders.
Can a cloth mask protect me from viruses?
Cloth masks reduce the transmission of larger respiratory droplets. There is still little evidence that cloth masks protect you from small aerosolised particulates of the size potentially exhaled by asymptomatic or presymptomatic individuals with Covid-19. However the extent of protection depends on all precautionary behaviour. Even wearing a mask it is still important to follow all precautionary measures.
Including a mask, what other precautions can I take to protect myself and others?
– Wash your hands regularly with soap or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
– Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
– Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
– Cover your cough or sneeze with a flexed elbow or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the bin.
– Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.Sources
