As you know, people across the globe are donning masks to help reduce the spread of Covid-19. Since we are based in Melbourne, Australia, our face-mask wear is actually mandated by the State Government.
We’re all about supporting local and finding a sustainable, signature style. So instead of sporting disposable masks, we’ve been on the hunt for some glam reusable cloth versions that add a slap of style, sparkle and sass to our lower faces.
These are all made to the specs the DHHS have recommended. We are keenly aware masks aren’t a surefire barrier against the virus and will continue to wash our hands, maintain social distance and #stayathome. But at least we can look a bit fancy doing it.
