WHY OUR FABRIC FACE MASKS?

  • ✓ 100% Australian-Made Keeping Australians employed and motivated during this crucial time.
  • ✓ Charity Donation 5% of every "Masks 4 Mates" purchase goes to a mate / charity in need.
  • ✓ Locally-Sourced Materials Supporting other local Australian businesses when they need it most.
  • ✓ Eco-Friendly Reusable, washable, made of 100% Cotton and keeping disposable plastic masks out of our waterways!
  • ✓ Cost-Effective A month's worth of disposable masks is typically 2-5 times the cost of our reusable textile masks.
  • ✓ Quality Hand-Crafted Our incredible team of expert seamstresses / sewers come from backgrounds spanning designer fashion labels (Sass & Bide and Zimmerman), costume design, pattern-making and beyond. Each mask is hand-crafted by these talented individuals, with individually operated sewing machines (i.e. not churned out by a cheap robotic factory).
  • ✓ Trusted Designer Label From Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, celebrities and runways, the FORD MILLINERY eye for design runs seamlessly through each of our beautiful textile face coverings.

PRODUCT SIZING

How to choose your size
  • The snugness of a mask is a personal preference. To determine your best fit, we recommend measuring from behind one ear, across the mouth and behind the other ear... Then compare that measurement to the "Total Length" measurement listed below. Please choose wisely, as masks can not be exchanged, returned or refunded due to COVID-19 health risks.  
Medium
  • Many women prefer this fit, however, mask fit is a personal preference & head size is not gender-specific, so please refer to the below measurements.
  • Total Length (including elastic): 33-35cm
  • Fabric Length (excluding elastic): 19 - 21cm
  • Pleated Width: 5.5 - 7cm
  • Expanded Width: 14 - 16cm
  • Slight variances may occur due to hand-made nature.
Large
  • Many men prefer this fit, however, mask fit is personal preference & head size is not gender-specific, so please refer to the below measurements.
  • Total Length (including elastic): 37.5 - 39.5cm
  • Fabric Length (excluding elastic): 19 - 21cm
  • Pleated Width: 5.5 - 7cm
  • Expanded Width: 14 - 16cm
  • Slight variances may occur due to hand-made nature.  

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Your mask has been hot-ironed for sanitary purposes and we encourage you to cold hand wash & iron your mask again prior to wearing it.
  • Cold hand-wash to delay discolouration or shrinkage... Or cold-machine wash in a delicate bag, knowing this may eventually cause some wear and tear.
  • Do not tumble dry, as this may shrink or damage your mask.
  • Iron at a suitable temperature, cautious not to burn or melt the elastic or fabric.
  • Hot ironing can reportedly assist with sanitisation, however, overuse of steam can shrink or mark fabric and elastic.   

WHO GETS THE 5% DONATION?

  • We have had many in-depth conversations with a vast array of charities about what kind of assistance they need at this time, including UNICEF, Make-A-Wish, CARE, Red Cross, World Vision, WWF, Greenpeace, Oxfam, Rotary and more. At this stage, we plan to distribute the donations across a variety of charity beneficiaries. We welcome you to suggest a mate/charity to us, however please note that the recipient(s) of the 5% donation will be allocated at our sole discretion. We thank-you for allowing us to help improve lives on your behalf! x
