Alexa mask is crafted from black linen, featuring floral satin stitch in multi-coloured embroidery. Handmade stitches adorn the edges. The construction allows free breathing. On the inner side, the mask has a pocket for the user to insert a disposable filter if desired. The mask consists of 6 layers of linen and 4 layers of non-woven material, which makes it very solid. It has passed the “candle” test and will protect the user better than any simple cloth mask, however it should not be considered as medical. Mask has special soft ear hooks, helping to avoid the uncomfortable feeling that can be caused by rubber bands during long wear. Every mask comes in an individual linen envelope. Each envelope is individually matched with the colour palette of the mask inside.
