Pleated Jaspe Mayan Facemask (Pack of 5)
Each mask has been made by artisans of the Guatemalan Highlands. The fabrics were originally created on traditional pedal looms and naturally dyed using a resist-dye method known as Jaspe. The fabric has been used from the off-cuts of traditional Mayan skirts or ‘Corte’. It is a soft and very durable fabric, made from 100% cotton – making it an ideal and stylish fabric for the perfect face mask
Saving the planet: We are using our fabric cut-offs to create these face masks and avoid waste of our beautifully crafted fabrics.
These face masks are:
- 100% Double-layered cotton - with a light, breathable cotton on the reverse and durable, up-cycled cotton on the front
- Secure - with elastic loops to fit securely round the ears
- Supporting Artisans
The proceeds of these face masks will directly support the artisan members of our weaving cooperative who now, more than ever, need the support of your thoughtful purchases.
