Face Coverings

£6.50 each (including P&P) /
2 for £12.50 (including P&P)


3D face coverings – with two layers, filter pocket, removable ribbon/fabric ties and open-ended nose wire channel

I looked at lots of different designs and chose this 3D one, as there is no centre seam.
I’ve adapted the design, adding additional features, including an open-ended nose wire channel,
removable/replacable ties and more ‘breathing space’ near the mouth

Comfortable, practical, adjustable, washable and reusable

These adult size face coverings are made from woven Cotton/Polycotton and have:

3D design with no centre seam
Two layers (outside and inside)
Additional filter pocket layer (for you to add your own filter if required)
Open-ended nose wire channel for adjusting the nose wire (included) to the right fit for you – great for those who wear glasses
Removable ribbon/fabric ties. Tie around the back of your head, or around your ears. Perfect for adjusting as appropriate.
NB: I have managed to source 6mm flat elastic in both black and white.
If you would prefer elastic, please state this at time of order.
The elastic will arrive threaded through the fixing channels for you to tie to the correct size for you, either around your ears or across the back of your head. Tie the ends of the elastic together in an overhand knot at the correct size, then carefully feed the knot into the channel to hide it.

As the nose-wire and ties are not sewn directly into the face covering, you don’t need to throw your face covering away if these parts become worn – just replace them and carry on wearing.

Every face covering comes with a pipe cleaner for you to create your nose wire. Click for full details on how to use your pipe cleaner as a nose wire.

£6.50 each (including P&P) or 2 for £12.50 (including P&P)

Face coverings are made to order.
Choose a plain or patterned outside, with a plain inside and filter pocket.
The outside and inside are usually different to clearly see the difference and to know which side to put against your face.
However, the choice is yours – if you decide to have all the same (plain fabric only), make sure you wear it the correct way round every time!
