Reversible face masks made with plant-dyed organic cotton and natural rubber elastic. One side is a plant-dyed indigo and white stripes, the other is undyed white organic cotton. Safe for your face.

Internal nose wire allows mask to be shaped around the nose for increased visibility (also works better for glasses). Strap length is adjustable with elastic knot hidden in the side pockets. Small 2" opening at the bottom of the mask can be used to insert a flexible filter if desired (additional filter not provided).

The mask is approximately 7.5 inches (19 cm) across and 4 inches (10 cm) long at side seam.

Ethically designed and manufactured in Los Angeles.

While most clothing and accessories use synthetic fabrics and dyes (even organic ones), our masks are made with 100% organic cotton, both undyed and naturally plant dyed. The white  fabric is undyed  organic cotton, and the blue and white fabric is naturally dyed with indigo leaves and myrobalan fruit.

Indigo leaf dye has been safely used for thousands of years (dating back to 2000-3000 B.C.) for its ability to make strong and beautiful blues. In the 1800s, natural indigo was almost completely replaced by synthetic indigo, which is derived from the known toxin aniline (a chemical that has been used to make rocket fuel).

The dried fruits of myrobalan trees used for dyeing are commonly used in ayurvedic and traditional Tibetan medicine. Because myrobalan is very high in antioxidants, it has been used to protect against various age and heart related diseases.

Ethically made all the way through.

Sustain makes sure every company involved in the supply chain is ethical and provides fair wages and safe working conditions.

The woven organic cotton is handloomed and hand-dyed by a charitable trust focused on making handlooming a profitable, fulfilling, sustainable and dignified income-earning activity through spinning, weaving, design, marketing and entrepreneurial training in several weaving centers in India. All employees, the vast majority of which are women, are ethically treated and paid fair wages.

The solid colored organic cotton is from an ethical factory in China that provides fair wages and safe working conditions.

The fabric was locally manufactured into masks in Los Angeles.

Made with GOTS certified organic cotton jersey fabric, and GOTS certified organic cotton trim and thread - the highest standard in organic. Every single step in in the creation of these materials, from the growing of the cotton, to its manufacture into thread and fabric, is ecofriendly.

The handwoven fabric is organically grown on small family farms in India.

  • GOTS certified organic colorgrown cotton and handwoven organic cotton
  • Natural rubber elastic covered in undyed GOTS certified organic cotton
  • 100% GOTS certified organic cotton sewing thread at the seams
