Please read before purchasing! "This virus doesn't discriminate-- it attacks everyone, and it attacks everywhere. There are no red states, and there are no blue states, and there are no red casualties, and there are no blue casualties. It is red, white, and blue. If there was ever a moment for unity, this is it."
-Governor Andrew Cuomo
This is a fabric mask creating using blue and sparkly silver cotton and a perforated, breathable fabric on the inside. Flanking both the right and left side are two red satin bows. Stitched in a beautiful patriotic red, you will find one single unicorn.
The single swarovski crystal rhinestone is a reminder for all of us to keep our perspective/heart bright during such a unique time in American history. #stayBright
If you are a health care professional, please note: fabric masks (even one such as this which feature medical fabric along the inside) are meant to be worn over another face mask.
That is, we cannot be more passionate in emphasizing that these masks are being produced as N-95 mask covers, and are not being made as an HCP’s sole mask.
As the CDC has written, plain fabric face masks are not 100% effective...but hospitals are urging staff to wear anything that they can at this time either over their N-95 mask or on it's own, which is what this mask was created for.
To quote the CDC:
"In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (ex: bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that cover the entire front and sides of the face."
Note: while these masks are washable, we do not recommend washing them on a normal washing cycle as it will shred the satin bows along the top. Please hand wash with a gentle soap or, if you must use a washing machine, place the mask inside a lingerie washing bag and wash on delicate.
Note: If you are able to send us your head measurement, then we would truly appreciate it. These masks are made to fit a standard size head, but if you are very large or very petite, then we TRULY need your help with your measurement in order to make sure that your masks fits flush against your skin but also comfortably.
and lastly, a side note about integrity: thirty percent of all sales from this mask will be donated to the Covid-19 Relief Find. We have calculated the cost of this mask to cover the cost of materials and time to create only. That is to say, this is a not-for-profit mask. La Gartier does not stand to gain any revenue from the sale of these masks. We are creating them in an effort to be of assistance to the true #AngelWorkers of our country.
