Please note: This is not a respirator or protective mask!
The outer fabric of the breathing mask is 100% cotton. The inner fabric of the face mask is white triple gauze (muslin). It is very soft, feels comfortable and does not scratch.
“Got the face mask today and I’m absolutely thrilled with the quality, the finish and the look. Therefore I would like to thank you very much in this way. I am so glad that there are such people like you who sit down at the sewing machine and start to give at least a little protection to people like me (without a sewing machine 🙂 Stay healthy.”
The fabrics for the breathing masks are pre-washed and dried in the dryer, thus anticipating the 10% shrinkage.
You can add another layer between the outer and inner layer. Examples are:
- Disposable breathing masks
- Paper tissues
- Hepa filter (air filter)
Replace the disposable layer often, approximately every 2-3 hours.
When the breathing mask is open, it covers mouth and nose completely. Please have a look at the corresponding picture.

We iron the masks directly before shipping them.
Cleaning the breathing masks / face masks
- Wash the masks like cotton.
- Lower the mask into boiling water for about 10 – 20 seconds. Iron it afterwards if necessary.
Length of the elastic band
From our experience, the length of the rubber band is suited for most adults. If you would like to order a breathing mask for children, please let us know and we will shorten the rubber band accordingly.
