The talented artisans of Tribal Textiles in Zambia stitch these colorful face masks from African-sourced, 100% cotton "chitenge" cloth. Each double layer pleated mask has elastic ear bands, and a top opening to allow the insertion of disposable filters.
Masks size small are primarily intended for children (see our Set of Four Zambian Chitenge Cotton Face Masks for larger sizing options). Small measures 5"L x 4"T. Dimensions do not include elastic straps.
Sold as a set of four. Each set is assorted, and colors and patterns will vary. Hand wash to maintain vivid colors, and shape of mask. Note: due to the nature of this product masks are final sale.
Profits from each mask sale benefit our Artisan Relief Fund! For each set sold, $25 is contributed to the fund.
Tribal Textiles provides sustainable employment, fair pay, training, and a pleasant working environment for more than 100 Zambian men and women.
All the work is done by hand on 100% African-sourced cotton—including the time-intensive drawing, sewing and painting with natural pigment colors—yielding exquisite, high quality textiles. Individual designs are hand-painted, drawing inspiration from the stunning wildlife and surroundings at the edge of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. After baking in an industrial oven, the stunning textiles are color-fast and fully washable. The fabric is washed and dried in the Zambian sunshine, ready to be sewn into stunning pillow covers, table runners, bags, and more.
