Homemade (Non-Surgical) Fabric Mask-Fitted
Shag Couture is donating non-medical/non-surgical face mask coverings and scrub caps to the Orlando VA Healthcare System and nominated healthcare workers. Purchase one for yourself to partake in helping the cause.
This style is fitted to the face and comes with a built in pocket feature. If there's a particular print you had in mind please message us and let us know. Leave any additional details in the notes :)
*These face mask coverings do not guarantee against the protections of viruses and/or other diseases.
Our masks use the light filter technique suggested by Dr. Scott Segal, chairman of anesthesiology at Wake Forest Baptist Health, who has done a study on homemade masks. Dr. Segal suggests, in the New York Times article, “If light passes really easily through the fibers and you can almost see the fibers, it’s not a good fabric. If it’s a denser weave of thicker material and light doesn’t pass through it as much, that’s the material you want to use.”
**Production Time** Due to high demand we will be balancing production of donation masks and orders. We thank you for your support and patience!
