Please only select courier at checkout. Parcel will be delivered by Courier Guy during lockdown. Any other fabric items ordered from our store will only ship after lockdown.
- Also please note, we have been using satin inside the mask. Our supplier has closed so we will be lining the masks with black cotton (still super nice and comfy) thanks for your understanding.
- All orders are made to order, by Sue, on her own, our production capacity has greatly decreased. Please be patient. Production is currently 5 working days, 2 days courier time (an estimate) and we will update this text to reflect accurately at the time of your order.
Every day is a challenge for us as a small business and with the Corona virus outbreak we have had to think of our safety as well as the safety of our staff. Both personally and financially. We have the opportunity as a small fabric manufacturing company to be able to make a needed product at this time. Hence our decision to supply washable fabric face masks. Going out the other day I considered wrapping a scarf around my face, this coupled with us wanting to sew fabric face masks for our Zana ladies who sew in the studio. We thought if we want one, so must others out there. This will not only allow us to have revenue to pay our sewing ladies as a small business in this tough time, but allow us to help you and help the communities less fortunate. These masks are intended to be a barrier for when you absolutely have to leave the house. We encourage self isolation where possible.
The disclaimer: These face mask will absolutely not prevent you from contracting COVID-19 but will stop you from coughing and sneezing onto others and will also assist you as a reminder to not touch your face or your nose. Helps you to feel like you have some sort of a barrier when being in public. They are not filtered and are not surgical grade, if you feel like that is what you need please contact a medical professional. We have provided you with all the info on our masks, please use your discretion when choosing to purchase one.
“The droplet from coughing and sneezing is around five microns and we have tested already that cloth masks can protect against droplets bigger than one micron, ” – Panpimon Wipulakorn, Director-General for the Department of Health in Thailand.
Please wash your fabric face mask before first use, please wear a clean washed fabric mask every time. Please wash your hands after handling the mask before it is washed. Please take caution when the courier delivers the parcel. Sanitize everything. We encourage you to buy more than 1 in order to rotate and have time to wash them properly between uses. The more you buy the cheaper per unit.
Purchased with full knowledge of what these fabric masks are intended to be. No refunds or returns, sale is final. Made locally in our small studio, we are upholding strict cleaning procedures and we are closed to the public. Regardless, we encourage you to wash your mask before first wear and wash your hands when you first take it out of the bag.

To match every *sale of fabric mask with a free fabric mask given to those South Africans who are less fortunate. (ie. if you buy pack of 10 then 10 will be given away) Free to those at risk, charity organisations, the elderly and the homeless. One thing we have noticed among South Africans is that greater than our concern for ourselves is our concern for others. Specifically those less fortunate, those who take public transport, those who have to still go to work and live in close confinement sometimes without running water, those who don’t have the means to ‘stock up.’ So with that we wanted to do the small bit we could as a company that manufactures fabric items. *Sale at full retail price on our online store.
