CDC, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
How to Protect Yourself & Others
"Covering your mouth & nose with a cloth face cover when around others"
CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
These facemasks are of high quality and made by hand in Greece within the European Union. The facemasks are dual-layer 100% combed cotton fabric. Combed cotton is a softer version of regular cotton, made by treating the cotton fibers before they are spun into yarn. Combed cotton requires more work and results in higher quality, tougher fabric, making it both soft and non-allergenic.
The local sewing machinists that make the facemasks are paid fair living wages which benefit the workers and local community. This means that they receive a fair price for the goods that they produce. Our facemasks are produced mindfully and their sustainability keeps the fabric out of landfills.
