Your photo silk face mask is made from high-quality pure silk, which comes with perks. Because the silk is so soft and supple, it prevents friction and the irritation that typically comes with wearing a mask all day. This hypoallergenic fabric is perfect for those with sensitive skin, and because silk absorbs less moisture than other fabrics, it won’t dry out your skin. Silk is naturally breathable and cooling, so you’ll be able to breathe and talk comfortably without the fabric rubbing against your skin or blocking your airways. Your mask has easily adjustable ear loops for comfort and a flexible nose wire that reduces the chance of your glasses fogging up. It’s so cosy that you might even look forward to masking up.
The eco-friendly inks that we use to print on the silk won’t change its oh-so-buttery-smooth texture. Your designs will be reproduced beautifully and are separated by the centre seam which gives structure to the mask. As each piece is individually handmade, mirrored designs won’t be matched up across the seam. This is the perfect opportunity to print two complimentary photos or designs.
How to get the right fit
Our custom silk face mask is available in one size and measures 24cm wide, 14cm high, and the ear loops are 22cm around. The ear loops feature silicone size adjusters to tighten or loosen the fit of the mask. Here’s how to measure your face:
How to wear your silk mask
To wear your printed silk face mask, check for the nose bridge inside the mask. This side is at the top, and the bottom will cover your mouth and chin. Loop the elastics over your ears and slide the size adjusters to make the mask tighter or looser. Mould the flexible nose bridge piece at the top of the fabric to comfortably fit your nose, which will help to reduce condensation fogging up glasses if you’re wearing them. Now you’re good to go!
To keep your reusable silk face mask clean and looking its best, we recommend handwashing with a specialised silk detergent or mild soap after each wear. If needed, you can iron on medium heat.
The silk may crease on the surface if it gets wet, but this can be carefully ironed out to keep it looking brand new.
Please note: These custom face masks are NOT medical grade masks. Do not purchase these face masks with the false understanding they will prevent infection from coronavirus. They are more about protecting others to reduce spread. Wash your mask regularly, ideally daily, to keep it hygienic. Due to hygiene concerns, face coverings are non-returnable.
