6 re-usable masks
Thinking of investing in a reusable facemask? We've rounded up some of the best (including local makers so you can support them)! Here's 6 masks to keep you looking stylish whilst we face *pun intended* our new normal.
Sue Mee Maudsley
Fashion Designer & Consultant Sue Mee Maudsley has been busy creating masks – even scrub sets and bags for the NHS! She has a whole range of stylish, funky facemasks available in 3 sizes (kids, ladies/teens and men’s). They are made out of cotton with 3 layers with underlining and a concealed moldable nose wire. They are handmade and machine washable. Just DM her on Instagram to see what designs she has in stock and to place your order!
Eco-friendly, fabric facemasks handmade in Canterbury by MerryFace. They are made from 100% cotton including Liberty lawn cotton with a wide range of fabric designs from chic, plain, fun and funky – there’s something for the whole family! They are available in 4 different sizes from age 5 years and upwards. Plus 15% of all their online sales are being donated to Pilgrims Hospices.
Flowers By Enchantment
Winners for the second year running of the Muddy Stiletto Best Florist Kent Award, Claire and Mandy at Flowers by Enchantment in Tonbridge continue to serve the community! They’ve been busy sewing masks for friends, family and their customers as well. All proceeds going to Reverse Rett and West Kind Mind. DM them on Instagram for details and to place your order!
Makersmasks’s aim is to sustainably shield the planet one face at a time! Run by two Style Consultants, they are using their craft skills and enlisting others to make masks in this time of crisis. They work from offcuts and small quantities so material options will be constantly changing! So have a look at their website to see what designs they have in stock. Best yet! If you buy 1, they donate 1 to a key worker.
Ubik Fashion Masks
Rock the new normal! Available for adults and children, these masks from Ubik are reversible, waterproof and have a quick-drying fabric. So you can easily wear them again and again. They have a range of bold designs and they are giving 5% of sales revenue to COVID Fighters helping hospitals and healthcare centers.
From making shirts to making masks! Newt London has created non-medical, reusable face masks for adults with three layers, a front and back layer in fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, and an inner layer of non-woven bonded interlining. Their sustainable face masks have adjustable ear straps to ensure a comfortable fit, and are reversible, meaning you get 2 print options in one mask. Vibrant and colourful, these facemasks bring fun and functional together!
