Thank you for your orders! Printed fabric masks are back in stock as of August 18.
These beautiful face masks are artisan-made from Ghanaian Ankara cloth. Featuring elastic ear bands and a thin, adjustable nose wire, each double-layer cotton mask can be comfortably worn in public situations, and washed after each use.
Masks measure approximately 10" long x 5.5" tall, with 5" long elastic loops. Sold in sets of four: choose from four prints, four solid colors, or two of each. 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. Please verify the measurements of mask before purchasing; we find these are sized best for small to average sized heads.
100% of the proceeds from mask sales will be donated to our Artisan Relief Fund!
African wax prints, also known as Ankara prints, are common materials for clothing in Africa, especially West Africa. Georgina is the amazing Ghanaian businesswoman who dreamed up our Ankara cloth slippers and journals. Challenged by a loss of work during the pandemic, she presented a smart idea to keep her limited staff safely working by crafting beautiful Ankara cloth face masks for Swahili.
