A community project from Southern Germany
Meanwhile it is common belief that a mask, even a self-made mask is helpful in times of a pandemic outbreak, however, everybody should wear a face mask in public – which is still uncommon in European countries compared to Asian countries where people have been wearing face masks in public for decades.
We wanted to do something about it and asked ourselves how it could become common practice to put on a face covering.
The idea: masks have to be more pleasant. We believe that only when a piece of fabric looks good, feels good and is just beautiful, it becomes an item you'll use every day.
We develop mouth and nose fashion not only for the current crisis, but also for the future. A piece of fashion that you put on again with every flu wave. It's our goal to have everyone find his favourite “Community Mask” in our shop.
We'll give you back your smile.
Our masks have been developed by designers and are simply comfortable. They are available in two sizes - for adults and children and the extra wide nose clip allows them to be individually adapted to the shape of the nose and the contour of your face, which is particularly helpful if you're wearing glasses. The fabric is fluffy, soft and just comfortable to be worn. With eye-catching prints our masks become a fashion statement. Colourful pictures or cool statements - it's far more than an improvised piece of fabric or an odd looking surgery mask, but fashion for the face. Even the official European flag has now found its way onto our masks after a EU member of parliament asked us to design a mask with the banner of the European Union. Our concept became so popular that the press wrote about it.
A mask made for comfort
We have developed a way to make a mask out of OEKO-TEX certified fabric combined with a high quality print. Despite the colour, the fabric remains perfectly breathable and is washable at 60 ° for optimal hygiene. It also dries particularly quickly. This makes every mask reusable and suitable and therefore much more sustainable than surgical masks that you have to throw away after one use.
We are also constantly improving our product. For example, we now use a nose clip which is particularly easy to bend, and our new rubber bands on the sides of the mask are so soft that they won't rub on the ears even when worn for a longer time.
Buying means helping.
Our goal is to offer you the best possible quality and at the same time to be able to make a beautiful mouth and nose mask available to as many people as possible. Usually this is only possible if you have everything sewed abroad, outside of the EU.
However, we have found a way where the whole process stays near our home:
facefashion.info cooperates with a print shop and several local tailors here in Southern Germany that do not operate their own online shop. If you order from us, we will forward your order to one of our partners, where your masks will then be sewn and sent out to you. That means that with every purchase you support a small, regional company instead of large corporations. At the same time, you can be sure that each mask is made individually – just for you.
In addition, we have regular donations. 5% of all sales revenue from our online shop goes to a good cause. We have already donated 1,500€ to a hospital and we're now raising more donations which we'll give to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders, a non profit organisation which has received the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of its members' continued efforts to provide medical care in acute crises).
If you order 10 pieces or more we can custom-design your masks – e.g. with your company logo or special exclusive print. Please just give us a call or email us.
Important note: Our face fashion is not a substitute for professional, medical equipment. Please note our security notes .
