Eco Masks - 3 ply fabric face masks, earth friendly, handmade in Melbourne Australia using upcycled materials.
Earth friendly, handmade, reusable, washable, triple-layer fabric face mask, sustainably made in Melbourne Australia entirely from upcycled materials.
Our 3 layer cloth masks are available in various sizes to suit adults, teenagers and kids. We make the pleated style as well as the curved / shaped style, both styles are available in a large, medium, small and extra small size.
We have had lots of feedback that ours are the most comfortable masks that our customers have tried - read on for more information on why!
Minnie&Lou masks are constructed of 3 layers, and always have a soft 100% cotton layer against the face. All our fabrics are upcycled from garments we have bought from Op shops over the years to use for making wheat packs and other pretty things, and this is part of that stash. The ear loops are made from strips of stocking, which is a very comfortable alternative to elastic. (it's amazing how many packets of unopened stockings you can find in op shops!) All materials are, of course, freshly washed before any snipping and sewing begins!
We have quite a few designs that can be selected, and there is a limited stock in each fabric due to the nature of upcycling.
**please select the size and fabric you would like from the drop down boxes.
After pay is available, and postage is free within Australia.
Adjusting your mask for a secure fit
Tie a loop knot at top or bottom of the straps to adjust length of the ear loops (if required – some of the stockings loops we use are stretchier than others)
There are also plenty of “ear saver” options you can buy from various makers, or make your own with a strip of fabric and 2 buttons (google ear savers to see how) Also if your mask has a particularly stretchy loops you can even cross it over each side of your ponytail (if you wear one).
***Our face masks are currently sold out, however we are regularly making more so do get in touch if you would like to enquire about pre-ordering. They sell out quickly, so pre-orders are advised.
