During the Corona virus lockdown I have been making masks fashioned from double layered 100% silk twill from Frances Nutt London pocket squares. They have an internal pocket in which you can add additional layers of disposable filter material if desired.
Each one is made at home by me using my grandmother’s Singer sowing machine and hand finished. Beauty and Safety. Washable & Reusable.
An elegant caring gift item for family and friends.
Bespoke possible features – plain elastic or covered ruched elastic straps and a coordinating pouch to keep the mask clean whilst carrying in your bag.
Please note these masks are not medically certified and are not a suitable replacement for any medical grade Personal Protective Equipment. The mask does not provide any guaranteed protection against COVID-19 and is not intended to replace other safety measures and guidelines as advised by The World Health Organization.
Wearing a mask to cover your mouth and nose in enclosed public places can reduce the danger of droplet infection and the spread of germs providing protection for you and others whether you are commuting or visiting the grocery shop.
THE STORY OF HAMPSTEAD HEATH
Hampstead Heath pond in the winter, walking with a dear friend.
An Ancient heath, 790 acres ~ the largest single area of common land in Greater London. Sitting astride a sandy ridge, it is one of the highest points in London and runs from Hampstead to Highgate, resting on a band of London Clay.
The former stately home of Kenwood House and its estate adjoins to the north and the south-east part of the heath is Parliament Hill, from which the view over London is protected by law.
Running along its eastern perimeter is a chain of ponds – including three open-air public swimming ponds ~ which were originally reservoirs for drinking water from the River Fleet.
Depth: approx 4 inches or 9cms depth, unfolding to 7½ inches or 20cms on the centre line. Width: approx. 7½ inches or 20cms
We recommend a gentle hand wash or machine wash with mild air dry.
We aim to dispatch masks within 7 days of order.
