Simultaneously feel comfortable and make a statement whilst out and about.
Handmade in London to order, our face coverings are made from soft stretchy jersey, 3ply quilted fabric, and are designed for a comfortable, snug wear that won't irritate your skin.
The high-quality fabric is breathable, and the stretchy elastic straps ensure your mask will stay in place over your nose, chin and mouth.
Using eco-inks, the face coverings are created using dye-sublimation, a deep infusion printing technique, which results in a long-lasting & intense colouration that is fade-resistant. And each face covering is easy to care for: washable at up to 60 degrees, it lasts up to 100 washes.
In chic classic black, each mask features our #AgeismIsNeverInStyle hashtag on the bottom left side in hot pink to make a clear, striking statement.
UK masks will be shipped via Royal Mail 1st class (estimated up to 3 working days). If you wish to receive your mask sooner, you can select 48 Hour Delivery (estimated 2 working days) at checkout.
International masks will be shipped via DHL. We will update you as soon as your face covering is on its way.
Each face covering is handmade, so always wash before use, and avoid touching your face whilst wearing the mask.
To put on your personalised face covering correctly, place it over your nose and mouth with clean hands, then pull the stretchy elastic straps over both ears. Adjust the fabric to ensure it completely covers your nose, mouth and chin. Pinch the shape forming nose bridge for a snug, comfortable fit.
To safely remove your face covering, unhook the straps from behind your ears and lift the mask off your face, taking care not to touch the front of your mask. Always wash your mask after use.
Everything we do at The Bias Cut is led by our core values of age-inclusivity and quality, slow, sustainable style. So when you shop with us you can trust you are supporting those values and are part of the movement to change the face of fashion to become a positive, inclusive one.
We carefully select our independent labels, ensuring they are aligned with our values. And we nurture enriched, long lasting relationships with them to ensure we bring you the most feel good, high quality pieces for your wardrobe, designed to be loved and last for years.
Our face coverings are made of a 3ply quilted jersey knit fabric. It has a tightly knitted face and is backed with a layer of wadding in between. Made of a poly-blend, it is water absorbent and breaths well. Having tried and tested various fabrics, including cotton, we selected this special fabric as it is high quality, durable, has a dense weave (helping to block respiratory emissions) and yet breaths well.
Our standard face coverings are designed to fit the following facial measurements:
Measurement 1 - Middle of nose to behind one ear (one side): 15.-16.9cm (5.9-6.6 ")
Measurement 2 - Middle of nose to just under the chin (max): 12.5-12.5cm (4.9 - 4.9")
How to measure:
We cannot guaranteed one size fits all, so if you would like more sizing advice or to enquire about ordering a different size, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via the 'Ask Jodie' pop up in the right bottom corner of the screen to discuss availability.
The face covering is machine washable from 30 to up to 60 degrees, and air drys quickly. Do not tumble dry.
Please note: These face coverings are not medical grade masks / PPE (which are recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an infection preventative measure, i.e. grade FFP2/N95).
Please do not purchase these face coverings with the false understanding they will prevent infection from Covid-19. They are about protecting others to reduce spread. Please wash your mask regularly, ideally daily, to keep it fresh and hygienic.
Due to the personal hygiene nature of the product, this item is non-returnable.
