This year, fall season has also turned into face mask season, and I thought I would show you some of the new, ethically made red lips face masks, which have just arrived at Fair Fashionista Shop

The women at CWSG (Cambodia Women’s Support Group) in Phnom Penh, make the face masks from upcycled fabric sourced on the markets, where leftovers from the garment industry are being sold. All the face masks are double-layered and have a filter pouch, and if you want a thicker mask, we have also made some from old jeans, which have been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

The masks have elastic loops, which can be replaced or adjusted. If you need to replace the loop, you just attach a safety pin to one end of the new elastic. Drive the safety pin through the side tunnel of the mask, adjust the length as required and tie a knot.

Cambodia Women’s Support Group was founded by Ky Kanary with the purpose of helping the women in the group with employment and income. Furthermore, the group also functions as a tight network, where the women can seek help and support from each other. Fair Fashionista has been working closely with CWSG for a long time, and I am happy that we still manage to collaborate on new products and projects in spite of covid and quarantine.

The mask is reusable and washable, and should be washed after each use.

This is not a medical grade or N95 mask and there is no evidence that it will provide any protection against covid-19 virus.

Please adhere to the CDC guidelines which you can read more about here >>
