Linen colour-block face mask | Handmade double layer sustainable face covering | Pink and orange abstract mask | Ethical face mask
Our vibrant orange and pink linen face mask is here to brighten up your summer sustainably. The colour combination was inspired by Mark Rothko’s piece called ‘Red and Pink on Pink’.
Each mask is zero-waste as we make each one from the small fabric offcuts from our larger projects (see the linen camisole top).
We hand make each mask in our workshop in Nottingham, England. We also make-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.

Linen is sustainable for a number of reasons. Not only is it durable and so long-lasting, but it is also biodegradable. Additionally, linen comes from the plant, flax. Growing flax is sustainable because it can grow in poor quality soil, it takes less water than standard cotton and uses significantly fewer pesticides. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation state that flax uses 13 times less pesticides than potatoes. Moreover, every part of the flax plant can lead to various products. This reduces waste and increases profits for farmers.
We use recycled fabric labels that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.
A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy.
As a brand that value sustainability, we also strive to post informative content on sustainable matters on our Instagram account @fordandguy
Machine wash the linen face mask at 30 degrees C. Drip dry and iron on medium heat. Do not bleach. To waste less water, energy and to make your clothes last longer, wash on cold, wash less often and don’t tumble dry.
