The Abrazos Face Masks are made of high thread count quilting cotton on the front; polyester on the back for smoothness and comfort; elastic strings for attaching in our original design that goes over the head to avoid contact with the ears and facial skin.
If you wish to add filters, the poly fabric can be easily cut and coffee filters inserted.
Each Abrazos Face Mask is handmade by our long time families of seamstresses working in San Miguel de Allende. All sanitary norms applied during sewing and handling in well ventilated rooms. Packages shipped in secure plastic envelopes.
Tests performed at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., showed good results for homemade masks using quilting fabric. The best homemade (quilting cotton) masks in his study were as good as surgical masks or slightly better, testing in the range of 70 to 79 percent filtration.
FLOWERS BEHIND THE FACE MASK ARE PURELY DECORATIVE AND NOT PART OF THE MASK.
