Our Fabric Face Masks + Active Snood

5 Pack Double Layer Masks

In this unprecedented time, we wanted to do something tangible to help and, using our existing design and manufacturing capabilities, we are proud to have been able to design and create a range of Fabric Face Masks and an Active Snood (designed for exercise).

President Cyril Ramaphosa has stated that it is mandatory for every South African to wear a cloth mask when in public to help curb the spread of COVID-19. Whether you’re on your way to work, making a quick grocery store run, or walking, running or cycling around the neighbourhood, our fabric face masks and active snoods have got you covered.


We’re stoked to have launched our own range of Fabric Face Masks and Active Snood, available online and ready to be delivered to your door anywhere in South Africa. And the best bit? They’re handmade in Cape Town by a local women’s empowerment project. Unemployment is a huge debilitating factor here in South Africa, now more than ever before, and so our fast pivot into PPE (personal protective equipment) manufacturing – and your incredible support – has created much-needed jobs.

Plus, a portion of proceeds from all sales goes towards providing face masks to those most vulnerable and less fortunate. Read more about this here.

While cloth face masks and our Active Snood will not prevent you from contracting coronavirus, they do assist in preventing transmission from person to person by reducing the transmission of droplets when you sneeze or cough, reducing the amount of droplets you inhale, reducing exposure in overcrowded areas, and reminding you not to touch your face. In addition, by using a cloth mask, we can reduce the demand for medical grade N95 respiratory masks and surgical masks, which are needed by essential health workers.


  • Cover your mouth and your nose with the fabric face mask or Active Snood
  • Avoid touching the mask or Active Snood while wearing it
  • When removing a face mask, do so by only touching the ties (do not touch the front of the mask)
  • When removing an Active Snood, pull it over your head from the back whilst ensuring that the exterior of the snood does not touch your face
  • Wash before first use and after every single wear with soap and water at 40 degrees
  • Once completely dry, iron the mask or Active Snood (the best means of disinfection)
  • It is recommended to have 3 masks or Active Snoods — one to wear, one in the wash, and one in case of emergency / both others need to be washed
  • Store your masks or Active Snoods in a clean tupperware in between wears and make sure to regularly disinfect the tupperware too
