New year, new mask-drobe? Since it looks like we’re still going to be sporting a face covering whenever we step outside for the foreseeable future, we might as well invest in a few more snazzy reusable face masks to add to our collection.
As we’ve seen, many Irish designers have started to make their own face masks and have even started a business out of it. From simple linens which blend into your stylish looks, to more colourful patterns which brighten up your winter wardrobe, there’s a face covering to suit absolutely everyone.
That’s why we’ve decided to shine a light on some of our favourite Irish face covering designers who are selling some truly fabulous pieces right now.
These masks are made with two layers of 100 per cent cotton, natural and eco-friendly — and come in a variety of colourful prints and patterns to suit the whole family.
