CORONAVIRUS UPDATE - DUE TO HIGH DEMAND - FACE-MASKS ARE CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK - And currently re-sourcing! Hopefully back in stock soon. But please note all outstanding orders placed will still be fulfilled - However due to the epidemic production times are slower than normal. Please bear with me. Thanks

 

 

IMPORTANT!
Please note these face-masks are NOT medical grade masks (which are recommended by the World Health Organisation - WHO - as an infection preventative measure, i.e. grade FFP2 / N95).

I wish they could be!

So please DO NOT purchase these face-masks with the false understanding they will prevent infection from coronavirus.

A couple of wee videos I suggest you watch...




- - -

However with much pressure from my customer base, I am making them available.

- - -

These are fashion face-masks with no proven medical benefit, please make your own decision (after doing your own research) if you wish to purchase these based on the description I give below. You need to decide for yourself if you feel there are benefits to be had from wearing a fabric face-mask).

-

However, there are suggestions wearing a face-mask may reduce risk of spreading the infection by a carrier, and may aid in the avoidance of touching your face... but please refer to notes below... *

-

My tartan face-masks may also be worn over a N95 face-mask if you want to dress it up, but please remember to adhere to strict hygiene measures when handling the tartan face-mask, as below... *

- - -

I can however say the face-masks send out a strong VISIBLE message to BE AWARE of the dangers of coronavirus ...the purpose behind the Virohazard tartan. And they can lessen the effect of the elements when worn outdoors.

Each order also comes with a downloadable - and printable - pdf with the health guidance strongly encouraged by the UK and Scottish Governments.

You can print and share this as many times as needed.

The Virohazard tartan

...was also created to help raise funds for NHS Scotland… with 60% of profits raised being donated to Scotland’s national health Service.

I hope to create a Fundraising page were people can donate 100% to NHS Scotland ...more on that in due course!

Please note - the prices stated in the Sun newspaper was incorrectly quoted (my mistake), when I spoke to the reporter I thought they were asking me for the price for the Virohazard scarves! ...the face-masks are not £35!

Questions I get asked:

What size do I need?

See the dimensions for each size provided. The smallest size is designed for children. Teenagers and young adults would likely be better opting for the medium size. Please double check dimensions if you are unsure.

Is there a right way up?

There is. If you look at the image of the mask you will see that the lines at the top and the bottom of the mask differ slightly, this is to ensure that your custom face masks contours to your face. The larger arch sits at the bottom.
