Why is this on backstock?
These masks are made using 50% offcut fabrics. As our seamstresses have had a slow year in 2020, we have had less suitable offcuts for this project. Hence, we have turned to supporting handmade hand-stamped batik trade and endek weavers. We have launched a new collection of structured masks. You can view our new collection HERE.
These face masks are adjustable and can be worn in two ways:
(1) Tie back cloth strings behind your head (less pressure on ears)
OR (2) Tie loops for ears according to desired fit
One standard size that fits adult and teen face shapes (adjustable with ties).
HOW TO WEAR
You can scrunch up the sides if you want a closer fit (good for glasses wearers - no more fogging up if it fits close!)
These masks are made using 50% offcut fabrics. Our batik products are always made from offcuts or deadstock fabric and support a seaside community of seamstresses through a second stream of income or full time work. We are proud to be FAIR TRADE. Our collaboration allows our sisters-in-sustainability to work from home and close to their families. As a social enterprise, it means a lot to us to be able to support each other through these uncertain times.
Why wear a mask EVEN if you have no symptoms?
Wearing a mask when you are in close contact with people may help to protect yourself (and your family or people in the same household). Wearing a mask will also protect others, in case you have the virus but don’t know it.
There is currently a global shortage of surgical masks, Singapore needs to conserve these masks for those who need them most: our healthcare workers and those who are sick.
Since February 2020: We have been donating 100% profits from sale of offcut batik masks to Migrant Workers' Centre, Migrant Workers' Assistance Fund to benefit the migrant worker community that has been hard hit by COVID-19. The money goes towards assisting migrant workers redress employment disputes and furthers education and awareness among them of their employment rights.
If you do not need a mask, but would like to help, we encourage you to donate directly at this link.
