This face mask is based on the “UFL Mask Prototype 2 – Version 1.04” face mask pattern and consists of 3 layers: linen/cotton/linen. I printed the lovely linen for this face mask by hand using an octopus stamp which I carved myself. This octopus is a mixture of a late medieval octopus as depicted in a 16th century manuscript as well as a little bit of modern and ancient Minoan inspiration.
The 100% linen on the outside lays soft on the skin while absorbing sweat and still providing a great breathability. The long ties can be tied behind the head which provide relief for sore ears. While not needed the top ties can be untied while the bottom ties make sure that the mask doesn‘t fall to the ground until it is needed again or put away. All facemasks are new, made from pre-washed materials, ready to wear and machine washable!
One of the pictures shows me wearing my own, personal face mask in the same size for comparison. The face mask you are going to purchase is completely new and unworn.

This face mask size is based on the “UFL/University of Florida Mask Prototype 2 – Version 1.04” and fits my kind of “medium shaped” face very well. Should you need a bigger size, please contact me per my contact page or per private message on my Facebook or Instagram page! I will happily create one in a bigger size especially for you!
